Mr. and Mrs. Callister came into Ms. Callister’s 1st grade classroom to share some stories and art from their trip to Peru. Our first grade classes have just completed their unit on the Inca and these stories and pictures from actual villages in the Andes mountains were a special treat.
We had a very successful “Rock the Socks campaign at all of our APA schools! Giving back to those in our community is one of the foundational principles of our schools. It is amazing what can happen when we get involved and help, even in such simple ways. Thank you to all of our school community for your contributions this holiday season.
It is always exciting to greet our students after they return from a break. Presley Page used this extra time to get in some extra learning and brought in a bug that she created. Pursuing learning for learning’s sake is always inspiring. Thanks Presley for inspiring us to continue learning even during a break from school.

Our 6th Grade Ambassador Leaders were rocking the sock puppets this week as they went into the lower elementary classrooms to talk with students about our school’s donation drive. In the “Kigatsuku” spirit, Emelia Humphries, made all of these incredible sock puppets for this project! Thanks Emelia and all of our 6th grade Ambassador leaders for getting students excited about our donation drive.
Congratulations to Hridaan Lala, one of our second grade students that recently won The Stewart Open Chess tournament, a US Chess Federation rated tournament. Hridaan has been participating in our chess club over the last few years and has been a great help playing with and teaching other students. Congratulations Hridaan!
Every year our schools help out those in our community that are in need during this time of year. This year we are collecting socks for The Road Home shelter to distribute to deserving people. It is amazing what a difference something simple as socks can make for those in our community. We will be collecting socks from November 30th-August 14th.
