Distance Learning Week 8

Message From Mr. Honohan

Good evening Parents,

Please note the APS Drive-Through Days in the flyer below to learn about dropping off library books, items borrowed from teachers or school owned items and picking up belongings your teacher lovingly packed up.

  • If you have children in multiple grades, you can make an appt to pick up in the office if you don't want to come to different days.
  • K and 1st are DROP OFF only
  • 8th graders are also keeping laptops over summer

I invite you to join tomorrow, May 18th at 7:00 p.m., for the final PTSA Zoom meeting. The PTSA meeting registration is required and has been emailed to all current PTSA members. If you are not a member or have not received the registration link, please email your request to in advance.

As always, thank you for supporting our school family.

Trevor Honohan

Principal APSK8
