Head of School's Letter

Welcome to the Head of School's Letter

I believe that communication is vital to the success of every organization. ASM is no exception! I write to our families frequently to inform them on a variety of topics that I consider important. These letters will give you a glimpse of who we are as a school community, what I value as a school leader, and the direction in which ASM is headed.

I had a similar experience during […]
