Come be entertained by our talented students as they bring Dr. Seuss books to life. Join us in the Draper 2 theater this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
It is a very special day when our school celebrates Veterans Day! It is always an inspiring and moving program and this year we were able to have many WWII Veterans join us. It is also very inspiring when multiple generations within the same family join our program. Thank you Veterans for protecting and preserving the rights and freedoms that all of us as Americans enjoy!
It is always an exciting time of the year when our students perform a musical. This year’s musical is “Seussical the Musical”. Come be entertained by our very talented cast of Draper 3 and Draper 2 students.
Our students are very interested in the new Reading University books that have been displayed in our front lobby. Our goal is to have students and families purchase, read and then donate the books to their classroom libraries. This is a great opportunity to create a literary legacy of giving for our students, knowing that they helped increase the books in our school’s libraries.
Our school is great because of the involvement of our parent community! Thank you to the parents that have stepped up and decided to help us during carpool. This is a very important piece of our school day and we appreciate their willingness to get involved and become part of team. Plus, they also get the added benefit of having an all access carpool tag.
The extended breaks scheduled throughout the year, give us time to rest, recharge and READ! Here are a couple of books recently finished by Mr. McVicar and are highly recommended! The first is an inspirational story of a young man building a windmill out of recycled parts, and the second is a book about our perceptions and how to view data about our world.
We had a very special boat and crew that visited our school today. Taking part in a trans-Atlantic rowing challenge a crew of 5 men will be rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in December to raise awareness and money for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) a debilitating muscular disease. They brought this specialized rowboat to our school so our students could get a “hands-on” look at this amazing boat.
American Prep has many needs that are filled with the many parent volunteers that come in and generously donate their time. Our school model requires a larger instructional staff than most schools and so we have an increased need for parents to help us with many other office tasks.
Thank you for all the parents that have been volunteering in the front office.
