We jubilantly present the 2nd Annual APA Fun Run on Friday May 8th from 4:00 until 7:00 at 10991 South Riverfront Parkway, South Jordan, just off of 11400 South and River Front Parkway.
Come and run/walk the trail with your family and friends, and enjoy some delicious food. We are happy to announce that we will be serving delectable wraps, fruit, cookies, water and Red Mango smoothies. Everything will be in the $1 to $3 price range so it will be very affordable for families. Bring cash or checks (made out to APEF) that evening.
We will also have the DUNK TANK filled with our students’ favorite teachers, instructors, and administrators. Dunk Tank balls are only $1 each.

As is traditional at APA, we present a Builder of the Year Award to one student from each grade as well as some of our outstanding staff members and volunteers. This is the most prestigious award within our APA community, and it’s difficult to select a recipient. As a community of builders, we see many examples of excellence in building from so many in our student body and staff.
The purpose of this assembly is to honor and celebrate the “builder” in each of us and most importantly the feelings of joy that come from showing care and concern every day. We respect, admire, and appreciate each and every one of our students and staff for the effort they put forth. Thank you for the encouragement and support you give your students each day.
Congratulations to our 2015 Builders of Year!

This competition, hosted by the Percussive Arts Society gives students an opportunity to perform and be evaluated.
Our Intermediate percussion ensemble scored 90/100, placing 12th place out of 30 entries. The schools that placed higher included American Fork, Park City, Pleasant Grove, which are among the best percussion programs the state currently has to offer.
Our advanced percussion ensemble scored a 92/100, placing 7th out of 30 entries in the Junior High division (7th-9th grade).
We are proud of APA percussion students’ hard work! We are also grateful to Mrs. Lara for her instruction and expertise with our students!
