Much of the science we do at ASU is inquiry-based, and this year’s Science Fair, on Tuesday, May 31st, gave our young scientists an opportunity to use their critical thinking skills and to share their discoveries. Students had to plan and present projects aligned with the curriculum. Students, like professional scientists, used observations, hypotheses, and deductions to make conclusions. The Science Fair was held in conjunction with our final Spirit Day of the year, in which the theme was “Mad Scientists.”
This year’s Spring Concert took place on Thursday, May 12th, at 2 PM. Kindergarten students performed a Jungle Dance and sang along to Katy Perry’s song “Roar.” This was followed by Grade 5 students performing dances to “Count on me” and “Fight Song.” Grade 1 students didn’t disappoint with their performances of “Do Re Mi,” “Perfect Together,” and “Beautiful Day!”
The students in Grades 2-4 performed the musical “Let’s Pass It On” by Michael and Jill Gallina. This musical encourages students to pass on good deeds, promoting positive feelings that will, in turn, make the world a happier place. Students from Drama Club wrote the script of the skit, and thus learned about friendship, kindness, and care in more meaningful ways. Also, students from dance club offered a great performance!

After touring around the Elementary and Secondary School campuses, the Ambassador spoke to an assembly of Middle and High school students during which he shared stories from his life, the country of Turkey, his international career as a diplomat and experiences he has had as part of his current posting in Mongolia.
