Roller Skating Party Update
Due to the district closing, the roller skating party was cancelled our last snow day. The PTA is still currently working on a new date. If you have paid already for the party, the PTA will address that when a data is selected.
Shrek the Musical coming soon…
It’s a “big bright beautiful world” for everyone’s favorite ogre in Shrek The Musical, based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation Film.
In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who’ve been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn’t be complete without unexpected twists and turns along the way.
Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek is an irreverently fun show for the whole family. With abundant opportunities for imaginative sets and costumes and familiar characters that prove that beauty is in the eye of the ogre.
Performances will be on the weekend of March 18 -19 at 7pm & March 20 at 2pm.
Family ticket $35 (2 adults and all children living in your home under 18)
Early bird prices are $2 off individual tickets through March 17th
Tickets are available at the APHS office or emailing Andrea Demorow at firstname.lastname@example.org

M-STEP STATE ASSESSMENT
In April, we will be starting the first window of online M-STEP testing. This is the state test that measures academic achievement and growth in English Language Arts, Math, Science (4th grade), and Social Studies (5th grade). Please see the schedule below as we ask for good attendance during the testing window. You will notice that the grade levels are separated by weeks. Students will not be testing every day during these windows. More specific information on Bennie’s test dates will be coming soon!
Students will be practicing with their teachers so they are familiar with the format, tools, and test-taking strategies when the assessment begins.
In addition, please take some time and view the practice test link (Must be on Chrome) with your child. You can get an idea of the caliber of the test and share the information together.
