Message from Principal Honohan
Thank you to all APS students and families who participated in our first Walk & Roll. It really made a difference in our car line on Wednesday. All students were in the building before the last bell. Special shout out to our APS Safe Routes team for organizing the prize table for students and encouraging healthy habits! If you are able, please consider making walking or biking to school part of your every day routine.
