Wishing you all a wonderful break next week as we all start bringing Winter to a close in hopes of an early Spring.  If you are staying here, we wish you rest and renewal.  If you are travelling, enjoy the adventure and we look forward to having you back safe and sound!


In cooperation with Mr. Bilgin, the DCM of the Turkish Embassy, and the Turkish community at ASW, we would like to provide several ways for the community to assist the earthquake victims:

Monetary donations can be deposited into the Embassy's disaster relief account number 41 1090 1883 0000 0001 5300 0647 at Santander Bank Polska, with the recipient name "Ambasada Turcji."

We also welcome donations of blankets, sleeping bags, tents, thermoses, flashlights, power banks, and hygiene products, which can be dropped off at each school entrance or delivered directly to the Yunus Emre Cultural Institute in Warsaw (contact varsova@yee.org.tr or call +48 228912513).

If you would like to support Turkey or Syria through any other school initiatives, please reach out to Ligita Miele at lmiele@aswarsaw.org

Family Dinners

Our next family dinner is March 3, the Friday after we return from our break next week.  Early sign-up is open.  We've had two of these Board of Trustee events with wonderful conversations and fellowship.  Over the first two events, we saw 156 guests.  We'd like to ramp up participation for the next event and have increased capacity ready.  So early sign-up is open NOW!  Details are being completed, but we promise to continue to build on the feedback we've received and add more to these important events.
