UN Day is fast approaching! Our entire community will be connecting on this day whether it is to prepare food and other items for a country booth or to help your child something to share in the classroom, UN Day is a busy time for everyone at ASW.
In fact, October is a very busy month!
Please read details about the low-key, but still fun, Halloween opportunities we will offer between UN Day and our Autumn Holiday and the November 1 All Saint’s Day off.

Black and Red Day
Hello, this is from the high school athletics and activities council. On Friday October 13th there will be SCIS varsity boys soccer tournament and we would like to support our athletes by wearing our school colors: red and black. Therefore could you please send out information to the students to wear red and black colors on that day? I will provide you the schedule of the times when our team plays, or students can find information in front of the new gym or in front of Mr. Matter's office.

UN Day is a wonderful opportunity for our parents and students to celebrate our international school. We have children and families from everywhere at ASW and teaching our children to appreciate how we are unique, while also building bridges to better understand how we are similar, is a big part of our work as educators. parents, and as citizens of the world.
The Elementary School has designed several opportunities for our children to be engaged and learning during the week of October 16-19:
1. On Monday, Tuesday and/or Wednesday students will share about their home countries. How this looks is dependent on what the child (with parent support or guidance) decides is important to share with the class and will vary by grade level.
2. On Thursday, Oct. 19, UN DAY @ ASW
Important Note about After School Activities on Oct. 18-19:
ALL indoor programs taking place after school on Wednesday 18th and 19th in all gyms will be cancelled due to UN Day Assembly and UN Day setup.
Halloween- Tuesday, Oct. 31
Pumpkin Decorating Celebration:
The ASW elementary school counselors would like to help service the needs and wants of our students and parent community the best that we can. For the last two years now, we have created a survey that we feel will help us when planning out our year-long goals for this school year. Also, the data we collect helps us know if we are meeting our own personal program goals. Please click the following link below and answer the questions by checking the box that most fits your choice so we may use this information when planning our school counseling activities. We will distribute this same survey at the end of the year to measure program success. Thank You---Your input is extremely important to us!
