ASTI Schoolwide Announcements

December 13th, 2017


RISE Theme for December is EMPATHY: “If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive.” Brene Brown


Go Green Tip: Your computer may go to sleep, but it's still sucking up energy. Turn your computer and monitor off at the end of the day.


No Place For Hate December Resolution: I pledge  from  this  day  forward  to  do my  best  to  combat  prejudice  and  to stop  those who, because of hate or ignorance, would hurt anyone or violate their civil rights.  


Lime Bikes: ASTI students may not ride Lime Bikes around campus during classes. ALL ASTI students riding Lime Bikes around campus at lunch or before/after school must have helmets & park the bike responsibly when done riding (do not block sidewalks, roadways or disabled access).


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: PTSA is hosting a Giftwrapping Fundraiser at the Barnes and Nobles in Dublin (4972 Dublin Blvd, Dublin, CA 94568) on Monday 12/18/17 and 12/20/17. Hours will be provided, so please come to support ASTI as well as help others ease the stress of the holiday season. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Rasarea, Joey, or Yongqi.


PTSA is also hosting a See's Candies Lollypop Fundraiser! Buy candy from sellers all over campus for only $1! If you are also interested in selling a box, please contact Rasarea, Joey, or Yongqi for a liability form and box of candy. The fundraiser will end the week after Winter Break!


The members of the Fine Arts Club have worked very hard since the beginning of the year to put together a body of artwork to be displayed at the West End Library. Their art is now up and open for anyone to see through the month of December if you are interested. Please stop by and show your support for ASTI artists! If you'd like to take part in the next show or simply create art for yourself, feel free to come join the fun in Room 1 during lunch on Wednesdays.


Performing Arts Club will be having karaoke during lunch this Wednesday in Rod’s room! Please come and sing your hearts out!


Jingle grams, jingle grams, jingle all the wayyyy. Oh what fun it is to buy one winter gram todayyy! That's right! The holidays are coming up! What's a better way to kick off winter break than with sending some love to your friends (or yourself) through a winter gram?!  This week is your last chance to buy an ASTI winter gram, so buy yours today! They contain some sweet treats, an optional personalized message, holiday goodies, all adorably wrapped together. It is sure to make your receiver smile. It is $3 for a small winter gram. $5 for a large winter gram. BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! Buy 2 large winter grams for $9. We'll be selling during lunch and after school :)


The TOY DRIVE is now in full swing, and we’re trying something new this year. In previous years, we’ve struggled to fill the box with toys.  This year, we’d like to try an idea that Ms. Krasky came up with. If you’d like to help fill the box but are too busy to shop, we have a cash donations jar for toys in the office.  Stop by and drop in some money and we will use it to buy toys for the box. If we collect $1 per student then we will be able to buy a generous donation of toys for the box.  Of course, you can also bring in new unwrapped toys for the box. Please donate what you can!  


As Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are approaching, ASTI's annual food drive is taking place! Donate any of your canned food to help the Alameda Food Bank satisfy the increased amount of food for the holidays! You can donate any type of non-perishable such as dried pasta, canned beans, cake mix, and etc. Also, please do not donate any expired food! As a reward for your generosity, the class that brings in the most amount of food will be awarded a hot chocolate party with desserts! So start filling up those food barrels! Food Barrels are located in:

Seniors: Mr. Rod's Room
Juniors: Ms. McCoy's Room
Sophomores: Ms. Ali's Room

Freshmen: Ms. Campbell's Room



ASTI Prom now has a GoFundMe! If you can donate any amount you can help us by using the link: It will also help tremendously if you can share this to your family, friends, and people you know. Any questions can be answered by Yongqi Kuang.
