News From the Nest

Week of February 28 - March 4, 2022

Falcon Family,


On behalf of our APS staff, students and families, I would like to thank the PTSA for bringing parents, teachers and staff together to connect and raise money for our school.


Loma Land Co. Falcon Fling Night of Luck was a tremendous night, thanks to all of our sponsors, all who bid in the auction and those who attended.


A very special shout out and thank you must go to PTSA VP of Fundraising, Mickey Barkett and party planners, Event Chairs Devin Qureshi and Molly Peaden, along with their volunteers.


We appreciate your continued support.

Thank you for making Loma Land Co. Falcon Fling Night of Luck a huge success!

Hello Falcon Families:


Wow. What an incredible night gathering with our school community! Loma Land Co. Falcon Fling Night of Luck was a huge success, thanks to all of our sponsors, all those that bid in the auction and those that came out for A Night of Luck. It was so fun to see so many faces, old and new, and be together again. Thanks for supporting APS and PTSA. We love our Falcon Family!


We want to make you aware of a few things.


Photo booth Images:

The WiFi in the Event Center was spotty, so if you took photo booth pictures and did not receive them, the photo company will be resolving the issue on Monday. Thank you for your patience!


Casino Rebuys:

Also, if you purchased additional casino chips via memberhub or venmo would you mind checking to see if your payment went through? The wifi also effected payment processing. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we would greatly appreciate you checking on this, as this all goes to our fundraising goal!


Auction Item Pickup:

Congrats to all the auction winners! We will be at APS Gymnasium/baseball field parking loop on the following days and times for auction item pickup.


Monday, February 28th

8:30 am-9:30 am and 2:30-3:30

Tuesday, March 1st

8:30 am-9:30 am and 2:30-3:30


Thank you making this event such a success!
