The American School of Ulaanbaatar celebrated 10 years of success in International Education in Mongolia by hosting a Gala event for the entire school community on November 5th 2016. Honored guests included the School Advisory Board members and leaders from the political, business education and diplomatic communities in UB. Entertainment was provided by the ASU Dance and Music Departments as well as by School #60, our partner school.The over subscribed event was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended, each of whom received a Memorial Book as a souvenir.
The National Honor Society is raising money for a New Year celebration for the students at Children of the Peak Kindergarten. This kindergarten serves over 130 children, aged three to five years. It is located near the UB dumpsite and educates student from families who do not have much in terms of resources.
We are hoping to raise 650,000 MNT to make this New Year celebration a memorable one for the children. Donation vouchers worth 3000, 5000, 10000, and 20000 will be on sale in the secondary lobby before school and at lunch until December 15th.
On Friday, November 18th from 4 to 6 pm, ASU’s Elementary Library held our first International Games Day. This event is celebrated in over 2000 libraries around the world, and we were a part of it! Playing games in the Library encourages people to interact with one another, share ideas, and have fun! It’s also an opportunity for families to play games together in a community setting.
Despite the snow, over 30 families participated in International Games Day. Parents, students and teachers played and made games at our school. We also managed to collect over 130,000 Tugriks and several food items which will be donated to the Veloo Foundation. Thanks to everyone for making this event a success!
We had our first Coffee & Conversation at the Elementary Library on Friday, September 30th, 2016. Many parents came in to participate in this event. We got to know each other a bit better, went on a tour of the library, learned about resources that are available to support students at home, and saw sample Library lessons. Of course, there was also coffee & refreshments available! There will be another one happening in October, so take some time and join us for some coffee & conversation!
