Holiday Greetings

It's hard to believe how time flies -- but the holiday season is certainly here in full force!

We've had a busy month at APL.  Our big news is that we opened a 4th classroom here at University Heights for our 2nd-3rd graders.  Now each grade level (K-1, 2-3, 4-5 and the middle school) has their own spacious classroom.  The reaction from our students has been priceless -- they are very excited about their new room as you can see here.  This expanded space has helped their focus and the classroom routine tremendously.  This is positive growth for our school!

We continue building our enrichment program and have started a partnership with Broadway Bound, fellow tenants in the building.  The staff at Broadway Bound is remarkably talented and their ability to tailor their program for all the various needs or age levels of our students has been tremendous.  Our students are learning about stagecraft, imaginative play, musical interpretation and many other skills.  In fact, the upper elementary and middle school students will be producing their own version of Grease this Spring -- stay tuned!  

I hope all of you have an opportunity to take a few minutes and count your blessings during this holiday season.  Personally, I feel blessed to have the students, staff and families at APL in my life.  We are on an incredible journey and I look forward to a busy and successful New Year.

Staff News

The entire APL staff participated in the International Precision Teaching Conference in Seattle thanks to a grant from the Schools for Spectrum Foundation.  This was a terrific opportunity for the staff to continue to refine their skills and network with leaders in the Precision Teaching community.
