Third Grade Metro Parks Presentation



Class of 2016–District Building Parade

On Friday, June 3rd, we will initiate a new APPS tradition–a memory walk for our graduating high school seniors.  They will first report to the middle school and then proceed to the elementary they attended around 1:30, in full ceremonial attire.    The idea is similar to the clapping parade of 5th graders we have on their last day, so we will have them enter through the K doors and wind up through the 5th grade doors.


PTA Meeting Cancelled

Our last round of NWEA Spring testing began this week with 2nd grade Reading and Math.  Our staff use this assessment to measure the growth that students have achieved in Reading and Math over this school year.  Students will be taking the NWEA assessment on Chromebooks in their classrooms in grades 2-5.  Testing wraps up for the building this Friday.

Have a great holiday weekend!
