Distance Learning Week 9...Way to go, Falcons!

Message From Mr. Honohan

APS Family,

I commend students, teachers and families who worked together as a team to learn from each other and support one another during challenging times.

APS will still be available to support your students during the summer in several ways. It is important for your child to continue learning at home. By spending 30 minutes a day on iReady, your child can avoid the summer slide.

Enroll any student in the APS Summer Reading Challenge, and register for the FREE Accelerate Summer Reading Academy for upcoming 6th, 7th & 8th graders.

As soon as I know more from the district regarding the next school year, I will communicate with our Falcon Family.

Have a safe and relaxing summer.

Trevor Honohan

Message From Ms. Thomas...Upcoming 6th, 7th & 8th graders

ACCELERATE SUMMER READING ACADEMY is a FREE six week virtual iReady reading course for upcoming 6th, 7th & 8th graders. This is a self-paced, online course. Students are expected to log on for at least 30 minutes daily, Monday ‐ Friday in order to get the most out of the program. However, they are always welcomed to do more. Completing these additional lessons over the summer will not only help your child retain the concepts learned this school year and keep their minds fresh for the upcoming school year, but it will also offer our scholars the opportunity to master grade level content "pushing" them to accelerate above grade level (or as close to grade level status) for the upcoming school year.

Studies have shown the iReady program has been effective in increasing student’s academic

performance. Therefore, I would like to welcome your scholar and highly encourage all students to complete as many extra iReady lessons during the summer as possible.

Your scholar can work on the program from any computer with internet access. Students can gain access as they did during the school year by visiting or simply clicking on the icon on Launchpad. I will be avaialble to assist and monitor your child's progress as we work together towards excelling academically.

The course will run from June 8th - July 17th.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Thomas @ 407-536-7797 or at

CONGRATULATIONS to the 2020-2021 Executive Committee of the APS PTSA Board. We appreciate your service! 💚💜
