Dear ASB Sukhumvit Families,
Welcome back to another exciting school year of learning at The American School of Bangkok, Sukhumvit Campus. We are looking forward to seeing you for our first day of school on Monday, August 5th, 2019. Our teachers and staff have been working hard this summer in preparation for the upcoming school year, and are looking forward to meeting your children.
The ASB Sukhumvit Campus is a family school. It is important that we work together to ensure that ASB continues to offer the best educational experience for our children. The ASB Sukhumvit Campus Leadership Team extends an invitation to all families of ASB to find opportunities for greater involvement. There will be many opportunities for parents to get involved over the course of the school year. Please be sure that your current email address and phone number are updated with our school registrar in our admissions office as you will receive notices of these opportunities for parents to get involved here at Sukhumvit Campus.
The ASB Sukhumvit Campus will continue to stress our Expected School-wide Learning Results (ESLR’s), which are incorporated into all aspects of our various programs to ensure that our students are critical thinkers, global citizens, independent learners, and effective communicators. It is our goal to ensure that each and every student who walks through the gates of The American School of Bangkok is prepared to not only take on the many challenges of today’s world, but to do so as an effective leader.
In the interest of security, student learning, and enhancing student independence, we would like to remind you of the preferred system in which our students are dropped off at school. Our school starts at 7:30 a.m. It is expected that each student be on campus and ready for the flag ceremony, which begins promptly at 7:35 a.m. each morning. Thus, it is important that your child arrive at school prior to this time to ensure that they are ready for the ceremony prior to it starting. The first class begins at 7:45 a.m. and the last class ends at 2:30 p.m. We ask that you drop off and pick up your children promptly.
We are also pleased to announce that this year, a new communication tool called “Parent Plus Portal” will be extended to elementary families too. “Parent Plus Portal” is an online tool in which you will be able to log in and access your child’s schedule, teacher contact info, grades, and other important features. When you receive the email to register, please be sure you do so and familiarize yourself with the website. To help you better understand how to best use “Parent Plus Portal”, we will be offering informational and tutorial sessions for parents who are interested. Please stay tuned for more information.
Let’s all come to make this school year a memorable one. We look forward to seeing you when you are on campus.
The ASB Sukhumvit Campus Leadership Team
