News From the Nest
Week of September 26 - September 30
Dear Falcon Families,
As you drive through our car loop you will notice the 10 APSK8 flags hanging high on the poles. These flags were put in place July 2018. They are now rather faded and ready to be retired. If you are interested in sponsoring these 10 double sided signs and want to include company branding etc., please contact Mr. Honohan.
We have some exciting things upcoming at APS. This week we have the Gator Shower and we're kicking off our once a year Gifts from the Heart auction. This is a really fun auction that provides your students opportunities to engage with their teachers on a whole new level! Whether you prefer mobile device or computer, you can easily prepare to participate in the auction.
The auction begins Tuesday, September 27 at 9am and will be live through Thursday, September 29 at 9pm (following the Gator Shower). Download the Handbid App and follow the instructions or simply visit tinyurl.com/APSGFTH and save to your favorites. We look forward to the amazing experiences your students will have thanks to these Gifts from the Heart!
We hope to see our Falcon Families at the Gator Shower on Thursday, September 29. Join us for photo ops with real gators, t-shirts, tons of animals, food, vendors, face painting, balloons, crafts, games with prizes, dancing, and so much more!

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
We commemorated Hispanic Heritage Month with a parade of flags Friday, September 23rd in the Cafeteria. The students displayed 23 flags from all around the word that share Spanish as a common language. APS takes great pride on this celebration every year. Hispanic Heritage Month runs from September 15th until October 15th. In addition to the parade, projects have been created by the students and are displayed all around the school with information on the 23 Spanish speaking countries and their capitals. This is a great way to celebrate countries and all Latinos around the world with their great accomplishments. The United States celebrates this month in all schools around the nation.
