What is ATPI?
The organization is open to teachers and students outside of Texas, so Mrs. Poholsky, Mrs. Salmans and Mrs. Folsom are joining together to offer 13 students an opportunity to travel for the second time to the ATPI Winter Conference.
Student photographers from Free State competed in ATPI's Fall Photo Contest the past three years and more than a dozen students won honors for their work.
