Aspiring Board Trustee Training
Mark your calendars for the first session this year of the New and Aspiring Board Member training. Like last year, I’ll be leading sessions on School and non-profit board membership. If you have an interest in a position on the ASW board, as a leader in PTO, or if you are looking to serve on other non-profit boards in the future, this training will help provide some of the key understandings associated with good governance in a non-profit setting. The content of this training has been expanded to also include insights into ASW. We’ll explore selected ASW Board documents and will give some insight into ASW structures and policy. Our first session will take place as follows:
Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. in the MPR

Are you interested in being part of Boy Scouts here at ASW? If so, there is an interest/organizational parent meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 12, in the MPR at 6:30p. Please come and join other interested parents to discuss our next steps.
Car and Traffic
There have been some significant traffic jams along the back road to school in recent days due to a project rebuilding the northern crossroad of Przyczolkowa and Drewny Street. This will continue through the end of November. There will be some changes to the car traffic and buses as a result. As part of the project, they are putting lights on the crossing at that location. This is actually good news in order to have a safer crossing that connects to the bike path that was recently installed.
I’ll reiterate my advice from last year that all bicycling should avoid the back road to and from school due to safety concerns. The challenge was the lack of a path on the main road that would allow safe transit to this area. That has now been resolved with the installation of a new bike path and this will continue to be improved in the weeks ahead.
