Congratulations to ASCA’s NJPAC Dance Team!  They won the bronze medal at the final competition at the NJPAC Center on June 2.

ASCA is full of new life.  The PreK and kindergarten classes observed the life cycle of the butterfly and set the fully grown butterflies free in the school garden.  The second graders cared for and hatched chick eggs in their classroom.  The baby chicks were given a new home on a farm.

ASCA’s Annual Art Show was held on May, 25.  The artwork of students in all grades was displayed throughout the hallway “galleries” for all to appreciate and enjoy.

Open registration is ongoing for grades Pre-kindergarten-3, Pre-kindergarten-4, and kindergarten through eighth grades for the school year 2016-2017.  Please call the school office (201-443-8384) for an appointment to come tour our school and meet our teachers.

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey visited ASCA on Friday, May 13th as part of the Shakespeare LIVE! program. The troupe performed A Midsummer Night’s Dream for grades 5-8, and answered questions from the audience after the performance. The students loved the energetic production, and laughed heartily at the characters’ antics. It was a lovely way to spend a spring afternoon, and many were pleasantly surprised to discover that they enjoy Shakespeare!
