How to Prepare for Success at ASI:

Organizational Skills

Students' organizational skills become increasingly important for the achievement of success during the coming school years.  School supplies which effectively assist in organization are a great asset for each student.  Based upon our experience with student needs, we have included a list of supplies needed to start the year. We have found that trapper keepers and spiral notebooks are not successful organizational tools.  A notebook serves as a supplemental textbook; therefore it is necessary for students to have it in class each day.  Frequently, additional materials are given to the students to assist them in their learning. 


All homework is designed to extend learning experiences and to stimulate pupils to study independently.  It is recognized that pupils work at different rates and with varying degrees of efficiency. These factors are considered when assignments are made. 

Time at home should be set aside for the completion of assigned work. It is important that students complete all homework assignments by the due date. Hastily completed assignments of poor quality, and/or partially completed assignments seriously detract from student learning. Students are expected to complete these assignments conscientiously; your supervision of this can help them achieve greater success in school.  If it appears that homework assignments take much longer than the time mentioned above, then a problem may exist.  Please contact the school if you have any concerns in this area.
