Newsletter from Audubon Park School K8 2020
Hello APS PTSA, Families and Partners in Education,
Our staff was spoiled all last week with the many ways you showed appreciation to us! Huge THANKS to the Staff Appreciation Committee; Molly Peaden, Allison Frye, Katie Newberg, Kristin Morgan, Kristen Reynolds, Sarah Sleeth and the many volunteers who served and contributed in individual classrooms. Big shout out to Mrs. Danielle Stevenson who worked alongside our PTSA and Partners in Education to create such an amazing week!
We are looking forward to welcoming Dr. LaVon Bracy to Audubon Park School on Wednesday, Feb. 19th. She will be speaking about her experience growing up during the Civil Rights Era. (See video from Channel 9) She will also be talking about turning her story into a children's book, A Brave Little Cookie. Students can pre-order a copy of her book and have it signed on Wednesday.
All forms should be returned to the Media Center.
As always thank you for supporting APS.
