Show your college spirit that day if you’d like!
Why do we do college week in elementary school? To inspire our kids to start thinking now and working to develop good habits so that college is one of the doors of opportunity in their futures! Ask your kids about what they’ve learned this week!

Constitution Day – September 17
We are honored to celebrate the signing of our founding document, the Constitution, on Thursday, September 17th. Each school will be reading the constitution, and we encourage you to read it with your families. As we more fully understand what the Constitution is all about, we can participate in discussions, and advance the noble cause with which this document was written.
Join us at live.KSL.com for the Draper 2 campus reading at 10:00 am. This program will last about an hour.
College Fair Dress Day – September 18
Your student can show support for their favorite college by wearing a t-shirt, sweatshirt/hoodie, or hat. Friday uniform should be worn from the waist down.
September Builders Theme – I am a Builder when I build with Enthusiasm
Walter Chrysler, an American automotive industry executive and the founder of the Chrysler Corporation. One of his mottos was “The real secret to success is enthusiasm.” It’s important for our students to know the attitudes they display towards working hard are a choice. When students develop and display an “I can do hard things” attitude, they are successful and gain further confidence in their abilities.
Parents play a very important role towards their children’s education when they express a belief in their child(ren)’s ability to work hard and succeed, as well as setting an example themselves.
Together—students, parents, and staff—we make a FABULOUS team!

When your student is sick
As we enter the cold and flu season, we appreciate all our parents who keep their students home due to an illness. If an on-campus student is absent for any reason, that student is still enrolled in the on-campus program and is expected to work with his or her homeroom teacher and groups teachers to complete any missing work. Absent on-campus students will not be switched to an off-campus Google classroom for temporary learning. We do, however, offer online reading and math lessons to our absent on-campus students. These lessons can be found under the “Off-Campus Program” tab at americanprep.org. We appreciate our parents who offer extra support at home to help their students get caught up. Please contact your homeroom teacher with any questions regarding missing work.
