A Letter from Sue Phillips
Dear Aston Families:
On behalf of the entire Aston Elementary staff, welcome to the 2019 - 2020 school year. We look forward to a year filled with new learning opportunities that will promote and empower students. Our theme this year is Be a Hero....Help Everyone Respect Others. It is a very important message that applies to everyone's life, in and out of school.
The Aston Elementary curriculum and extracurricular activities are comprehensive and designed to encourage problem solving and critical thinking. The core curriculum, including Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies, as well as Visual Arts, Music, Physical Education, Technology, and Character Education, is differentiated to meet the needs of all learners. Students at various grade levels are invited to participate in school programs such as chorus, band, student council, newspaper, safety patrol, Math 24 and Reading Olympics. Some additional clubs include Girls on the Run, STEAM, and Drama. Local and global charitable projects take place throughout the school year and serve to provide authentic life lessons. Additional real-world learning opportunities are embedded to make certain our children have a well-rounded educational experience.
Two essential components to student success are parent involvement and communication. Student achievement is positively impacted when parents create a home environment that encourages education and when a home/school relationship is established through continuous communication. Involvement can be as simple as talking to your child daily about school, working with your child on homework or school projects, and communicating regularly with your child’s teacher. Other opportunities to become directly involved in school activities include joining the Aston PTL.
Thank you in advance for your continued support.
