Teacher Appreciation Week
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 5 -9, 2014.   We are inviting parents to show their appreciation for our teachers by bringing in a snack item to treat them during their special week.  Suggested items include:  bottled drinks, sealed and packaged candy, cookies, crackers, granola, trail mix, etc..  Please, no homemade items.   Another suggestion would be to write a personal note to a teacher that you personally appreciate.   All items will be evenly distributed to all teachers.

Items may be delivered to the main office of each of our 3 buildings through May 9th.

APA pursues School Improvement Grant (SIG)
APAis  currently pursuing a School Improvement Grant. We are eligible for this grant based on our Priority status which was determined using the state’s A-F Accountability measures. This grant will span three years and give APA the resources we need to not only improve our academic performance and A-F Accountability but also to provide your student with the absolute best education possible. We are very excited about the opportunities that will come from this grant and the new programs that we will be able to implement. We already know that we offer a very strong academic program, and we are thrilled to be able to take it to the next level!

If you would like to provide feedback or complete a parent survey regarding this grant, please feel free to email me at jbarker@goapa.org.

Thank you for your support as APA continues to strive to provide your child the best educational opportunities available!

Director of Academics

APA goes paperless
APA will no longer be printing out hard copies of reports cards for grades 6-12.  Report cards will be available on Skyward within 1 week after close of the grading period.   Students/parents may go to Skyward to view and print report cards if they wish (See below how to obtain Skyward login if you do not have one.)   If parents want a paper copy of the report card and do not have internet access, they need to send Capt. Thompson  (rthompson@goapa.org)  in writing their request stating why they need a copy and we will print and send one home with their child.

Grade access is now available   If you wish to access your child’s grades, discipline, lunch/fee balance, etc., please do the following.   We will process the information as quickly as possible and get back with you.

We must verify your information before you will receive your logins.   Please email Capt. Thompson the following information for each child:
1.  Child’s name and grade
2.  Your relationship to child
3.  Child’s home address
4.  Main phone contact

Only those officially entered into our system as guardians will be allowed access.
