News From the Nest
Week of March 7-11, 2022
Our Orchestra 2/3 students had their MPAs last Tuesday at Lake Buena Vista High School.
As a result of all their hard work and attention to the finest details, our APS Orchestra students walked away sweeping Straight Superiors once again. Orchestra assessments uses a point/rubric system for the state and our students took every point they could get on the stage and in sight-reading.
Judge 1 - 67 / 68
Judge 2 - 67 / 68
Judge 3 - 65 / 68
Sight Reading - 19 / 20
Congratulations Mr. Munera and ROCK STAR APS orchestra students!
Coming up on Thursday, our PE Dept will host our APS Field Day for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. This fun event will be a great way to end the third quarter, allowing for friendly compeition between classes and a great way to get active outside.
As a reminder, this Friday there is no school for students. Teachers will have a workday on Friday to prepare report cards. Please note: If your student in 3rd- 8th is bringing home their OCPS device, please have them keep it fully charged, as to not drain the internal battery.
I hope everyone has a relaxing and restful Spring Break.
