Dear Falcon Families,
Congratulations to our students representing APS at recent competitions this past week! We had participants in the 4-H Oration Contest, the International Academic Competition (including a Science Bee, History Bee, and Geography Bee), and Solo and Ensemble (band/orchestra). We are so proud of your hard work!
This week begins our Black History Month presentation series! Local community members will be visiting our students to share their culture and careers. Thank you to our volunteers!
