Since the kindergarten and Science 10 classes were both working on a Chemistry unit during the same period of time, it was decided that the two classes could work collaboratively and learn the basics of acids and bases while using the high school equipment. And what a great opportunity for young children to dress in lab coat and to wear goggles. They looked like real scientists.
The Science lab could not fit both classes at the same time, half would go to the lab and work on the experiment while the other half would stay in the classroom and work on a poster, “What is Science?” Then the group in the lab would come to the classroom and the group in the classroom would go to the lab.
In our Physics 12 program, the students must learn the basics of how lenses refract light and what type of glasses an optometrist will prescribe should the patient have difficulties seeing objects at a distance or nearby. As an extension of what was covered in class, the students were given the opportunity to visit the clinic of an ophthalmologist and to get some information about other conditions such as glaucoma, cataract and astigmatism. In addition, they were allowed to familiarize themselves with the eye specialist equipment which they enjoyed very much.
On behalf of NHS chapter at ASU, I thank all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff for donating and being part of our NHS Tree Planting Project. We successfully planted 95 aspens last Saturday, on May 9th, 2015 for our sister school 60.
The school 60 welcomed us with their wonderful performance in English and Mongolian. The principal at school 60 thanked us for planting those trees and said that her school truly appreciated ASU’s effort to make her school look better year after year.
Thanks again for everyone for donating and coming out on Saturday to plant 95 aspens for school 60.

Our Business Studies field trip was a success, offering an opportunity for KFC’s corporation to learn about the student demographic and their respective interests. I believe it was also a good opportunity for the students to learn about KFC and the business concerns. The students also had questions about starting the business and about the business environment. All in all it was a great success and I would try to arrange other trips in the future. Our field trip has also been featured on the KFC Mongolia Facebook page with pictures of our students.
To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers: “I firmly believe that anyone’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that they hold dear, is that moment when they have worked their hearts out in a good cause and lie exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”
