Happy New Year and welcome to the second semester. I want to take this time to express my excitment as we finalize first semester grades and begin a new semester. Restore is concluding this week and reportcards will follow. I want to thank you all for your flexibilty through school closings and adjusting of Restore opportunties.

As a reminder, for the balance of this school year should APS close due to calamity days again, STEM High School will follow the University of Akron for school closure.
