News From the Nest
Week of April 4-8, 2022
Hello Falcon Families,
As we enter the month of April, being punctual to school each day will be very important. A myriad of exams and assessments will take place this month. Being on time gives everyone the advantage of starting the day, ready to succeed.
Upcoming this week:
Tuesday, April 5th: Grade 3 Reading Session 1
Wednesday, April 6th: Grade 3 Reading Session 2
Thursday, April 7th: Grades 4-8 Writing
Congratulations are in order for Mrs. Costa, ELL Resource teacher and her students. The OCPS Multilingual Department visited APS last week and awarded several of our hard-working students awards for their top progress in the Inspire Learning Program. I am proud of these students and their initiatives and growth.
What a week! Thank you to our wonderful PTSA, especially event planners Erin Provenzale and Lindsay Masterson and APSK8 lead, Mrs. Roberts for the appreciation-packed week of treats, breakfasts, lunches, and surprises along the way! Thank you to all the families and students who made our teachers and staff feel so loved. It was an amazing Staff Appreciation Week 2022!
Remember, Full Day Wednesday April 6th.
We hope to see you at the Park Life Falcon 5K next weekend, April 9th.
