October Builders Theme – I am a Builder when I demonstrate integrity
Integrity is more than being honest. It is doing what’s right even when it’s difficult. There are many ways to be a person of integrity: standing up for what you believe in, as long as it’s based in truth; not settling for something that is less than what you deserve; speaking out when there is injustice. We know our students are individuals of integrity. This month we have been challenging students to continue building this character trait and find opportunities for growth.

Parent Teacher Conference – Meal Donations
We have a tradition of feeding our amazing teachers during Parent Teacher Conferences when our teachers stay late and staff is working hard.
To minimize exposure, we are choosing to order box meals instead of asking for home prepared food donations. However, we do need store bought beverages and snacks.
With limited opportunities to volunteer, this is a chance to support your teacher and our campus! Please go here to contribute:
Thursday Dinner Donation – https://americanprepfoundation.squarespace.com/draper-2
Drink & Snack Donation – Click here
We are making an extra effort to track all donations of time, supplies, or money this year. So don’t forget to record your donations here: https://draper2.americanprep.org/volunteer/
Jeans Day Guidelines
On Thursday, October 29, we will have our first Jeans Day reward for students with no missing work (no #7 on the learning plan for the previous 2 weeks). You will know your child qualified to wear jeans if there is a sticker attached to their learning plan on Wednesday night.
Please remember: Jeans Day will consist of any of the following uniform pieces:
- Blue jeans in good repair (no colored jeans, jeans with holes, skinny jeans, decorative markings, or shorts) You MUST be able to pinch an inch on each side of your jeans, NO skinny jeans. If students do not want to wear jeans, they can wear their regular uniform bottoms or khaki pants.
- Blue polo or regular uniform top may be worn. (4-6 grade no tie required).
- Regular uniform shoes are to be worn.
Students may, of course, wear their regular or Friday uniform.
Students who have NOT earned this privilege, but come in jeans, will need to call home for an adult to bring them a change of clothes.
Watch for that sticker on the learning plans next Wednesday, October 28th, to see if your child earned the Jeans Dress Day special privilege. We know they can do it!! Students will have the opportunity to earn another Jeans Dress Day in two weeks if they have no missing work.

Draper 2 maximum is 320. Once meals have reached the cap you will not be able to place an order for lunch. Please order ASAP. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

The next Parent Volunteer Committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 27 at 2pm at Draper 2. One of the agenda items is the Holiday Giving Campaign. We ran this campaign last year at Draper 2 and Draper 3, and this year we are adding Draper 1. This program gives parents the opportunity to purchase points for teachers and staff that can be pooled together to “purchase” bigger ticket items from an online store. If you are willing to help with the campaign or you have ideas on how we can improve it, please plan on attending the meeting. We will begin promoting it in early November.
Remember to add Americap Prep as your Amazon Smile Charity here:
Amazon Smile gives APEF a percentage of your purchases and it doesn’t cost you one penny!
Ganesh Indian Cuisine brought a buffet of delicious food for our entire staff.
We are so grateful that they celebrate their child’s birthday with us each year!
