Hello After School families,

We have made it to the end of another school year! What a year it has been and how fast it has gone by. I’m happy to say we flew through it by having a blast!

This year was our first year back to “normal,” if you will. We went back to seeing whole faces and being able to do more than what we were used to. Our kids have experienced a handful of transitions and this year really showed me how resilient they are, and I could not be prouder. Through all the changes, they kept smiling, and showing up for me, as much as I them. The growth in all of us throughout this year is unmatched.

I truly appreciate the wonderful school family we have and all of the support from you all. I cannot thank you enough. It has been so rewarding establishing and growing relationships, and growing as a community together.

I hope you all have an amazing, FUN-filled summer! Be sure to take as many photos as you all see me take. I can’t wait to see them in the fall!

Here’s to another year in the books,
Ms. Asendra

Please feel free to reach out to me any time at
