It is with heavy hearts that we mark the passing of Siegfried “Zig” Engelmann, a pioneer in education. Zig was a leader and visionary whose life was dedicated to providing quality instruction and curriculum for teachers throughout the country and world. At American Prep we utilize many of the programs he developed and all of our students have benefitted from their use in our classrooms and instructional groups. Here is the link to his obituary:
It is always a special afternoon luncheon with our staff! Our amazing parents and FSO organized an amazing and tasty meal. It was an afternoon our staff got to relax and spend some quality time together. Thank you to all the parents that decorated, helped serve and clean up. Special thanks to Nicole Harman our FSO leader and Cup Bop and the Song family for such delicious food!
Congratulations to all of our finalists that participated in our school wide Spelling Bee. The top 6, Surya Kapu, Vaishnavi Kothamasu, Kazim Ali, Kole Henrie, Mina Hwang, and Jonathan Arulanandam, will compete in our District Spelling Bee on February 26th at our West Valley 1 campus. An extra special congratulations to our school champion, Surya Kapu!
One of our annual traditions at American Prep began on Friday as our wonderful parents and students spent the evening decorating the doors of our staff. It is the start of a great week of appreciating the hard work of our staff to educate our students. Thank you to all of our families for your work and incredible creativity.
