News From the Nest
February 27 - March 3
Dear Falcon Families,
We look forward to continuing to celebrate Black History Month this week! We will wrap up our door decorating contest, reading challenge, and presentation series with more visitors from our community. We have enjoyed seeing student learning and presentations focused on influential African Americans throughout the month.
We will also begin celebrating Read Across America this week! This event highlights the importance of reading and will motivate students to read with fun and exciting activities.
Please remember that this Wednesday is a LONG Wednesday and students will be released at 3:00pm.

They were recognized for their work in five of the 10 categories for Project of the Year. They received third place for Citizenship Development (Start With Hello Week), Community Service (Harbor House Donation Drive), and Fundraising (Parents' Night Out). They received second place for The State Project which was to help the unhoused (Warmth for Winter Donation Drive) and for Membership Motivation.
Thank you to our sponsor, Ms. Halon!
Field Day is coming! It is going to be on Friday, March 10th.
This year we are bringing the parents back! PE needs your help! If you are able to assist with one of the stations or decorations, please sign up of APS’s Field Day Station Volunteer Sign Up. If you are a Station Volunteer you will have to remain at your station during the 9 Station rotation, however, you will still be able to watch your child during the Tug of War Challenge. PE can really use the help in order to make the event run efficiently and smoothly.
To assist with stations, you must be an Additions Volunteer. The link to become an Additions Volunteer HERE.
