Countdown to 50 Years

Director's Message - WM Summer 2012
Dr. David Ottaviano
Dr. David Ottaviano

Alumni hold a special place in our school. AISB prepares students for the world of work, via univer- sity. We recently did a survey of our Alumni to determine whether AISB is meeting the needs of our students. Our Alumni reported back a resounding Yes! Over the years there have been hundreds of students who have graduated from our school and we are attempting to “reconnect with them.” I have heard some oral stories about school experiences of our alumni but we are also looking for old photos and written remembrances. We encourage you to write to us to answer a few short questions:


1. In one paragraph please let us know what AISB meant to you.

2. Do you have a favorite anecdote or story that you would be willing to share?

3. What do you remember about your experience in Romania?

4. Or send us your old pictures.


The school is having its 50th anniversary celebration on the weekend of September 1, 2012 and we invite all from near and far to attend. Along with our regular Saturday afternoon BBQ, the High School Boys and Girls Soccer teams are hoping you will join them in a challenge game on Saturday afternoon. That evening we will have a 50th Anniversary Dinner Dance.

On Sunday there will be a special Alumni Reunion Luncheon for all alumni. We are hoping to endorse a new Alumni constitution and receive nominations for Alumni Officers. Elsewhere in this magazine you will find a registration form, which is also on our website and will be posted on the AISB Alums Facebook page. Please consider attending to reconnect with your old friends and to see your old school.


And finally, would you be willing to join a group of illustrious alumni by sharing your life’s experienceduring our celebration? Would you be willing to speak to some of our elementary or high school students about what life was like during the days you attended AISB? If the answer is yes, please contact our alumni coordinator, Ms. Cristina Marcu at


We hope to see you in September.

David Ottaviano,
Ed.D. Director
