ASTI Wins California State Gold Ribbon!

ASTI Community:

CA Superintendent of Schools just announced the recipients of the CA Gold Ribbon award to recognize successful signature programs. ASTI and Wood Middle School have been honored this year.  You can find the press release here.

This is recognition of phenomenal hard work and devotion from ASTI teachers, staff, students, parents and district support. 
Way to go!

Warm regards,

Tracy Corbally



Hello Asti Community,

We need a new PTSA president!  PTSA is vital to our school.  The commitment entails setting the agenda and sharing it as well as facilitating for the monthly site meeting and attending the monthly district PTA meeting.  It also includes work on a few events, including two Awards Nights, the annual Auction, and sometimes prom/graduation.  There are a couple of fundraisers around the holidays to be overseen.  ASTI PTSA has a highly motivated group of student members who do most of the legwork, but the president needs to provide oversight and guidance and adult signatures as needed.  The commitment is much smaller than at a larger school.  If you consider running for PTSA president, you will be showered with love and appreciation!  The elections are tonight; please join us.  

Warm regards,

Tracy Corbally
