The Third Annual Read-A-Thon Promoted a Love of Reading in the Elementary School!

Congratulations to all of our outstanding elementary school students! Keep reading!

Participating students challenged themselves to see how many minutes they could read during the Winter Break. This was a great opportunity to, first and foremost, promote a love of reading while also raising funds to create a new outdoor reading space. This outdoor covered space will be furnished with tables and chairs to create a colorful and functional reading and rest space to be enjoyed rain or shine. Prizes funded by the FFE were awarded to individual students as well as one whole grade for their efforts during the Awards Assembly on Tuesday, January 16th. The 3rd annual ASM Read-A-Thon is a great opportunity Parents, please visit the parent portal to see photos of the assembly!

ASM Music Students Spread Holiday Cheer in and around Milan this Month

During December ASM music students have shared their voices and music with the wider community.

From Serravalle to greater Milan, ASM music students of all ages have been spreading holiday cheer beyond the campus walls during December.

The Upper School Choir and Jazz Combo students kicked off the month with a concert at the Serravalle Outlets. Their festive voices and holiday music warmed up the blustery day and livened the shopping mood at this premiere designer outlet mall. This was the very first ASM concert at this fantastic location and a wonderful showcase for our ASM music students!

The ASM String Orchestra and Elementary School Glee Club joined forces and visited a local retirement home, Anni Azzuri Mirasole, close to the school. They performed carols and played merry tunes for the residents. The Glee Club also brought their holiday songs and repertoire to two local "Happy Child" nursery schools not far from ASM. They sang and danced for a rapt audience of little ones whose smiles andapplause were oh so rewarding.

Coming soon: Annual Upper School Winter Concert and Elementary School Concerts. Parents, check the Parent Portal or the ASM Newsletter for dates, times and locations.
