November 9, 201
Last week my family hosted two young men from Budapest who were part of the high school soccer team. One of the boys mentioned to me that he thought our school spirit was impressive. In fact, he said the red shirts worn by everyone, even the little kids was “awesome.”
It was a proud week at ASW!
Enjoy the holiday on Wednesday. (No School- November 11)

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Our Enotes is an effective way to communicate with parents, teachers and staff each week. The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will announce their upcoming events each Monday on ASWs website, the ES and MS/HS will add the link to the bottom of their Enotes. This will shorten the Enotes parents receive from the ES and MS/HS. Last week the MS/HS Enotes was too long, therefore, PTO had their own Enotes and the positive praises from the community was amazing. With the fantastic help of marketing and communications, the PTO will have their own spot on ASWs website for "Monday Memos."
There is a need for the PTO Enotes, it is accessible, predictable way to communicate with the community. It gives the opportunity to communicate key messages about the PTO, a helpful and important aspect of the school community. The Enotes along with the E-newsletter improves communication, increases awareness about school events and activities, and engages more parents. The communication creates a sense of community and pride in the school. Each week the parents will have a "Monday Memo" from the PTO with the upcoming events for the week and months listed.
The purpose of the PTO is to promote the mission of ASW, we want to foster a cooperation between parents, teachers, staff and students. We assist in uniting school and community efforts in supporting the best education and community for ASW students.
