While waiting their turn in a game, Cade, Emily and Hyrum, some of our 6th grade students, joined Mr. Andersen in one legged wall sits. At American Prep we build minds and muscles!
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!

American Prep is school of many families and cultures. Mrs. Hyer’s 4th grade class had the opportunity to hear Lily play the zither in their classroom. Lily wore a traditional dress while playing this traditional instrument and all of her classmates were amazed. Thank you Lily for sharing your culture and music with our students and school!
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.
Wow! What a snowstorm! It is one of those rare days that happen during a winter storm when it is not safe to travel to school. So, to the delight of many of our students, American Prep did not have school today. Although the school looks empty and deserted, we look forward to having all of our staff and students back filling the halls, classrooms and parking lots tomorrow.
One of the most important factors in what makes an effective school is parental involvement. At American Prep we are very fortunate to have so many highly involved parents. Our parents make our school great and as a show of our appreciation, we had a breakfast where Mr. McVicar and our administrative staff made pancakes for our parents. Our students also made “Thank you” posters as a sign of their appreciation.
