Distance Learning Week 5
Message From Mr. Honohan
Good afternoon APSK8 Students, Parents, Teachers, Staff & Community,
As Supt. Jenkins shared this week when releasing the plans for Graduation, this is surely not how we expected the school year to end, but we are determined to make the best of it for our students and families. Our Admin team is currently working on plans to adjust as we head into the coming month for device return, belonging collections, final report cards, etc...We are also working on plans to celebrate our students' accomplishments and honor the outgoing 8th graders.
When I think back on the school year, I will always be grateful for the support of local partners. From B-3 Cafe delivering lunches every day to Warrior One providing free field trips to our students and for Melissa Davis offering free Staff Yoga every Monday and now every Monday, Wednesday & Friday.....and that day when Kelly's Ice Cream truck pulled up to the school "just because" and treated our entire staff! It's moments like these that remind me just how fortunate we are to be a part of this community.
Please support our Audubon Park School Neighborhood who support us so well! I hope you'll consider our local partners and businesses through the Audubon Park Garden District "District Dollars" program, where you can purchase $10 gift certificates to local businesses with 100% of the money go to the business. Plus, at each price point, there are greater savings (Example: Buy $30 District Dollars for $25.....$70 DD for $50.....$150 DD for $100) Certificates come in $10 and more information and details can be found here: https://mkt.com/apgd
This week, Mr. Carswell, Mrs. Thomas and I celebrated the hard work of our teachers and staff who are continuing to move teaching and learning forward in innovative ways by proving a Drive-Thru lunch experience. It was great to see them, although from a distance through car windows.
Thank you to all of our families who are working hard to make sure our students continue to learn.
