Students from grades 1 to 5 proved that ASU’s Got Talent during the annual competition in March. Acts included singing and dancing, as well as playing musical instruments. The event was the culmination of months of practice, and while some students might have had to overcome a little stage fright, they all gave a great effort and provided a wonderful variety of performances.
We celebrated our International Day event on February 23, with booths from dozens of different countries that offered food, artifacts and information. The event is held annually in conjunction with the Tsagaan Sar holiday. It originally featured Mongolian culture but later expanded to highlight the multicultural nature of our school community. Students, staff and parents hosted and visited different tables during the morning celebration, and in the afternoon, we were treated to the annual performance from our sister school, School 60.
