Six years ago, I applied for the headship at ASM, in part, because of this statement on the school’s website. Throughout my tenure, I have been passionate and determined to support and advance these core values at ASM.
Our school’s foundation supports a peaceful and respectful learning environment. Rich in cultural diversity, our students and families are encouraged to share their experiences and interests. Community events such as the United Nations Day, Coffee House, and Chinese New Year provide opportunities for us to learn about one another and develop an appreciation for the richness of our varied cultures and traditions.
Please join us at tomorrow’s celebration of the Chinese New Year, sponsored by PACE. You will be treated to a variety of exhibits, crafts and performances. The traditional Lion Dance is not to be missed!
