With the ringing of the bell the school year ends


ASW has marked the end of the school year with the traditional all-school End of Year ceremony, attended by all students, faculty and staff, as well as families and board members.

The ceremony was the 64th in the school's history and included speeches by the school director Jon Zurfluh, who called out each of the flags representing our community's many nations. The 'march of the flags' was followed by performances from a multi-grade choir, Middle School rock band singing 'It's My Life' by Bon Jovi, as well as the new tradition of bell ringing to signal the start of the summer break. Departing faculty Jim Matter and Mary Niesłuchowski were invited to ring the bells, along with a special student guest as well as the director himself.
