We have so many talented parents and families that attend American Prep! This is a great opportunity to experience and support one of our families and enjoy the wonderful art that their family creates. Please see the attached flyer for details.
Our FSO Leaders spent some time working with the Academic Support Teams training them on a variety of ways they can provide support to individual classroom teachers. One of the strengths of our schools is the high level of parental involvement. The additional support and help with our teachers makes a significant difference in the quality of education at American Prep. Thank you FSO and our AST Leaders!

Congratulations Seamus McVicar, Nathan Stone, Skyler Strubin, Nick Wanner, Josh Christiansen,Gabe Maxfield and Jamison Proctor.
Ms. Larsen’s 6th grade class created suspended structures capable of holding a load measured with pennies. The challenge was to hold a load of 100-200 pennies for 30 seconds. There were 7 groups and 4 successfully completed the challenge. It was a great science and team building project for our students!
During lunchtime today some of our students had the opportunity to go watch a demonstration from the sheep dog trainers that use the field in front of our school for their training A big thank you to Deb, Donna and Lou for spending some time with our students, here with Mrs. Stanford’s 2nd grade class.
Our annual Fall Festival is coming up this Friday and fortunately, Marianne Porter from our FSO was in the lobby this morning selling tickets, so I was able to get wristbands and meal vouchers for my students.

A crazy weather event happened today right as carpool was starting. A very strong localized rainstorm produced lots of heavy rain and some marble-sized hail! Students waited under the eaves for as long as possible before going to the carpool curbs at the tail end of the storm. Considering the weather delay and it still being only day #3, we completed the entire afternoon pick-up 5 minutes faster than yesterday!
