I have some exciting news and a thank you to share! First of all, if you come into school this week, you will notice our Lost and Found has been cleaned and organized. In fact, it isn't just our lost and found. The various Lost and Founds from around the school have been pulled together in one spot to help make finding lost items easier. All items here are not labeled. Those that are, we are trying to deliver back into the hands of the owners. The thank yous go to our parents: Anne Guss, Darcy Crawford, and Brian Mason. Anne's idea and vision allowed others to get involved. She demonstrated our Core Value:
We all need to do the same from here.
- ES students, teachers and TAs will strive to keep the Lost and Found organized.
- Parents and students need to look and take their items from the Lost and Found. (Or throw them away- there are several single shoes. If it is yours and the mate is gone- please throw it out!)
- On the last day of school, the items not collected will be donated.
- Want an easy way to label your children's items? Here is label link popular with many parents!
Future plans are in the works for a centralized whole-school ASW Lost and Found.
We are all in this together!

Parent Partnership Meeting Feedback
We had 20 parents attend the Parent Partnership meeting on Friday. (Here is the quick Keynote I used at that meeting.) Parents participated in an Appreciative Inquiry, Strengths-Based share cycle aimed to jump-start our discussions with what is going well at ASW. From there, we dreamed of ways to make our school even better!
Here is what was shared and considered:
Are you interested in substituting? We are looking for EU and Polish Citizens to substitute in the elementary school. Fluent English and a general interest in children and child-development is a must. If you are interested in working at the school as a substitute teaching assistant, please review the requirements and submit an online application today! (Questions? Please email Dorota Buksowicz: firstname.lastname@example.org)
As we enter Spring, we begin to hear about families who are leaving ASW and won't be here next year. To help us ensure a smooth transition for your family, please email Admissions (email@example.com) to let them know you will not be returning. From there, the ES Counselors and teachers will be able to plan for a positive transition to a new school and home, for your child.
