NEWS FROM THE NEST
Newsletter from Audubon Park School K8
Dear APS Parents, Community Members, Teachers and Staff,
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to spend time with family, friends and enjoy a little downtime. I look forward to seeing all the students back on campus on Monday, December 2nd, ready to finish out 2019 strong.
Our APSK8 Family and our Community is something I'm thankful for at our school. I hope to see many of you at our Falcon Fund Donor Mixer this Thursday, December 5th at 6:30 p.m. Please RSVP by Tuesday, Dec. 3rd, so we can arrange for food and drinks. (See event details and RSVP link below)
Coming up on January 14th, our Guidance Department is planning a College & Career Fair for our 8th graders. We need your support and connections to expose our students to a wide variety of careers. Please see the information below to sign up.
This week brings exciting events to our campus as a student group from Buenos Aires, Argentina will be spending 2 days with us. Some of our students have been Skyping with these students from The Wimbledon School of Language over the last year. On Wednesday the students will meet in person. Last school year, Alicia Fernandez, Principal of the Wimbledon School, sent 3 teachers to APSK8l to co-teach with our teachers and connect the students. I was honored to work with this school for 5 years while at Glenridge Middle School. They are excited to see our new school and continue the collaboration. Along with visiting Wednesday, this Friday they will perform a show about being Global Citizens, along with students from Senora Goode's Spanish classes.
Looking forward to a busy and exciting next few weeks of school.
Thank you for your continued support,

APS College & Career Fair
APS is holding its 1st College and Career Fair for our middle school students on January 14th from 8:40-10:20 AM. Students will use this time to meet with professionals working in a variety of career paths to find a path that ignites excitement for their future.
We can't hold this event without your support though. We are looking for different career professions to come and show off what they do. We are looking for jobs that are trade certified to college graduates; and all in-between. We would like to have a variety of careers represented to allow our students to explore all options available to them. If you would like to come and show off what you do, please sign up using the link below.
For more information, please feel free to contact Michelle Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org .
