TAS Moon Festival Celebration

Dear Parents,

We are preparing for an exciting and eventful Moon Festival.  This year, each student will create a unique lantern in their art class using recycled materials.  We ask that the students bring used (and cleaned) items such as plastic water bottles, toilet paper rolls, newspapers, chopsticks, and more.  Please bring the materials to school between September 18-22. Each class will be awarded based on their creative designs at the assembly.

In addition, we are very happy to invite you to this year’s TAS Moon Festival Celebration on Tuesday, October 3rd, at 8:15 AM in the TAS MSHS Auditorium.         

Our students have been working hard on their performance for the Moon Festival Celebration and we are sure that you will enjoy them!

     We ask that for this celebration, students wear a traditional tunic (áo dài) to school.

We are excited to have you come and support all of the students’ hard work! It is our pleasure to welcome family participation at our Moon Festival Celebration.

Best regards,

Garth O’Donnell                                                                            

Academic Director and Principal, N-12


Kính gửi Quý Phụ huynh học sinh!


     Nhà trường đang chuẩn bị sự kiện chào mừng Tết Trung thu rất thú vị. Trong năm học này, mỗi học sinh sẽ tự làm một chiếc lồng đèn độc đáo bằng cách sử dụng nguyên vật liệu tái chế tại lớp Mỹ thuật. Chúng tôi đã yêu cầu học sinh mang những vật liệu tái chế sạch như là chai uống nước bằng nhựa, cuộn giấy vệ sinh, giấy báo, đũa, và nhiều vật dụng khác. Quý vị vui lòng nhắc các em mang đến trường trong khoảng thời gian từ ngày 18/09 đến 22/09. Mỗi lớp sẽ được nhận được phần quà dành cho sự sáng tạo tại lễ tổng kết cuối tháng.

     Ngoài ra, chúng tôi rất vui khi được mời Quý Phụ huynh tham dự chương trình “Ngày hội trăng rằm” vào Thứ Ba, ngày 03 tháng 10, vào lúc 8:15 sáng tại hội trường khối Trung học.

     Các em học sinh đã tích cực tập luyện văn nghệ để biểu diễn trong Chương trình “Ngày hội trăng rằm” và chúng tôi đảm bảo rằng Quý vị sẽ thích thú khi thưởng thức chương trình này!

     Nhà trường khuyến khích học sinh mặc trang phục truyền thống (áo dài) đến trường vào ngày này.

     Nhà trường hân hạnh chào đón Quý Phụ huynh đến tham gia và ủng hộ chương trình biểu diễn văn nghệ của các em trong mùa Trung thu năm nay.

Trân trọng,

Garth O’Donnell

Ms. Ann’s Welcome Letter

Dear Parents,

Welcome to The American School’s Pre-Nursery class! I am so glad to have your precious little ones this year. I am Ann Capitulo or Ms. Ann from the Philippines. This is my 11th year teaching preschool and my second school year teaching the youngest members of the TAS family.

I am thrilled to have your child in my class to discover, explore, learn and play with. We will have tons of activities that will help your child develop physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience this school year.

You are your child’s first guardian. Please prepare him/her every day to be in the best frame of mind by making sure a full night’s rest and a healthy breakfast is provided.

Your child should be in school at 8:00AM sharp and should be picked up at 2:45PM. Let’s help your child settle in by coming on time.

Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.

My email is: ann.capitulo@tas.edu.vn

For the first couple of weeks at school we will be working on establishing class and school rules and routines. The medium of instruction in the classroom is English. The teaching assistants are here to help translate for the kids to have a better understanding of classroom activities, lessons and routines.

Please send your child to school wearing proper uniform and comfortable footwear. We will also be having a 90-minute nap time each day. The school will provide a sleeping mat, but we ask that you send your child to school with a labelled pillow, blanket and any other napping material they may need.


We are always moving around and getting messy and sweaty indoors and outdoors, so please make sure that your child always have the following in their bags. Please label their personal belongings too.


What to bring to school:

  1. Complete set of clothes (shirt or dress, shorts or pants, underwear)
  2. Diaper (for those who are not potty-trained yet or those who needs one during nap time)
  3. Towel
  4. Wet wipes
  5. Swim wear on Fridays

Let’s work together to make this school year a memorable and enriching experience for your child.


Ms. Ann (Pre-Nursery)
