Community Service Opportunity: ASTI will join the COA FabLab and Wood Middle School Teen Techs at the Ruby Bridges STEAM Night to entertain and inform families and students about opportunities at ASTI and COA. We seek ASTI students to join us to interact with the TK-5 kids and families. Activities will include laser cut puzzles. Skateboarders are encouraged to join since the rack that Clarisse made in FabLab will be on display.  Wear helmets if you come to skate, and be mindful of the younger kids present. Teen Tech and Robotics members are also encouraged.  NOTE—this event conflicts with the ASTI Spirit Dance, which will be loads of fun.  If you’re torn, I encourage you to attend the dance- there will be other community service opportunities with Ruby Bridges kids. Sign up in the office. Friday October 25 6:15-7:45pm at Ruby Bridges Elementary.

All Students: Requests for official or unofficial transcripts must now be made by filling out a Transcript Request Form in the office.  Forms can be found at the front of the office and must be placed in Ms. Krasky’s box above the student printer.  Transcript requests will take at least 1 school day to process, and when complete will be placed in the Will Call box above the printer for you to pick up.  Please plan accordingly when you are in need of a transcript; immediate requests will no longer be granted.


10th, 11th & 12th Graders:  Spring and Summer 2019 grades have been uploaded to transcripts in Aeries.  Please log into your Aeries accounts to make sure your Peralta transcript data is correct.  If you find any errors, please turn in a copy of your unofficial Peralta transcript to Ms. Jurkovich highlighting the course/grade error.  Students who took a later session summer course that doesn’t appear on their ASTI transcript will need to have an unofficial Peralta transcript printed and turned into Ms. Jurkovich highlighting the course that needs to be added.
