Dear ASB Sukhumvit Families,
The American School of Bangkok extends a cordial invitation to you to our upcoming events in October 2018.
ASB Open House 2018
The ASB Open House will be held on Thursday, October 18th, 2018 from 12:30 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.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
12:30 - 12:45 p.m. Registration in Auditorium
12:45 - 12:50 p.m. Welcome from Principal / Announcement of upcoming events

There will be fifteen minutes allotted for each conference. If you require more time, additional conferences can be arranged with the teachers at a later date. The first quarter report card will be issued to those parents in attendance. If you cannot attend on this day, please contact us to schedule a more convenient day. Parents will receive a Conference Request Form via their student, to fill in, for conference time requests.
