Message from the Principal


We hope this message finds you well. We wanted to take a moment to update you on the progress of our students as we approach the end of the first quarter of the school year.

First Quarter Ending: The first quarter has been a time of growth and learning for our students, and we are proud of the dedication they've shown in their studies. As the quarter comes to a close, please ensure you have completed progress reports to your advisor, detailing your child's achievements and areas for further improvement.

At AKChoice, we are committed to your child's education and growth, and we appreciate your continued partnership in this journey. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's progress, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to support you and your child in every way we can.

Thank you for entrusting us with supporting your child's education. We look forward to a successful continuation of the school year and all the opportunities it holds for your child's development.

Warm regards,


Student Spotlight-Harper Hansen

Did you know October is Dyslexia Awareness Month? One of our elementary students, Harper, decorated a bulletin board to bring awareness and education about dyslexia to our school. Way to go!

Harper is not only a strong advocate but also a dedicated student and loyal friend. She is silly, hardworking, and thoughtful. Her classmates even chose her for their citizenship award, "Big Deal Kid", this week! Keep up the great work, Harper!

Harper also plays sports and is learning Russian.
