News From the Nest

Week of Februrary 7 - February 11, 2022

Dear APS K8 Families,


What a great showing from our Kindergarten through 5th grade athletes Saturday at the annual FAST START event in Winter Park. Special thanks to Coach T for organzing our team and great job to all the students who participated. Check out the APS ATHLETICS Instagram for all the students who placed in many events.


Monday will be an busy day with our "Step up to Middle School" event for all 5th graders. They will have a meeting in the afternoon with Mrs. Johnson, Guidance Counselor. Then, all families are encouraged to log into ZOOM (see information and link in this newsletter) for a detailed presentation. Important information will be given for a smooth transition to 6th grade.


Our Basketball teams will wrap up their regular season this week. They will travel to ACE K8 on Monday for a 5:15 game. It's not far, so I hope to see a traveling group of APSK8 fans in the stands!


Also on Monday evening, it's the last Monday for our some our student-maker groups to sell their creatiions at the Audubon Park Monday Community Market. Let's help them have a successful close to business and sell out their stock! The Market is in the Stardust parking lot from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. Please consider stopping by the APSK8 Tent and making a purchase from our students.


Be sure to follow us on Social Media for all happenings and news, including upcoming Poemville events that feature our students' collaboration with local businesses.


Finally, grab your tickets to the upcoming Falcon Fling (see graphic and info below) I hope to see many of our families, teachers and community members at this fun event at the new Winter Park Library Event Center. It will be a memorable night!


Thank you,


Trevor Honohan, Principal
