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!
Talking with our students about College starts in our earliest grades. It is always a fun and dynamic week as our staff and students talk about many different Colleges and Universities. Our Ambassador team put together lunch time chat videos about the different Universities and Colleges in our area. On Friday, we hosted a College Fair, where our parents came in to talk with our students about their careers and the different Colleges and Education needed for their various professions. THANK YOU parents and our Ambassador staff for making this such a great event.
What a great night to celebrate with our American Prep community. Thanks to all the volunteers and our amazing FSO Leaders, Nicole Harman, Stacia Shavaloff, Zoie Farmer, Kelly Bible and so many more, we enjoyed a great evening of food trucks, bouncy houses, rock wall, laser tag, archery, face painting, henna and all kinds of delicious baked items.
As part of our staff training, we work with a nationally recognized expert in safety and security. Dave Acosta has been working with American Prep for over five years providing “Fight Back Training” to train staff how to disarm anyone that would enter our schools with a gun. This hands on training empowers our staff to take charge of any situation that could arise with an armed intruder into our schools. American Prep is now “Fight Back” Certified.
What a great evening for a movie! A big thanks to Friends of APA, our Education Foundation for sponsoring our 3rd Annual Outdoor Movie Night. We had a great turnout and enjoyed watching the movie on a BIG screen that was on our Draper 3 building. Thanks to our Operations and IT teams that made it possible.
