Dear ASB Green Valley Families,
The American School of Bangkok extends a cordial invitation to you to our upcoming events in October.
ASB Open House 2018
The ASB Open House will be held on Thursday, October 18th, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at both campuses. During the time allocated for “Classroom Observations”, parents are welcome to visit any classrooms of their choice, to observe our students and teachers in action. Every teacher in the school will be expecting parents in their classrooms at this time, so please try to visit as many as possible. We are proud of what we do at ASB, and are looking forward to showing the community what 21st century education looks like in the classroom. Our goal is to assist you in understanding your child’s educational routine, and the manner in which we engage our young learners here at ASB. During the classroom observation time period (1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m), you should visit many of your child’s teachers. If a teacher does not have class at that time, the teacher will have prepared information for you and will be available to discuss what they have been doing in class and what is planned going forward.
