9th Grade Jump Start Day
Posted 7/30/22

Dear Incoming 9th Graders and Families,

Incoming 9th Grade students are encouraged to join us on Tuesday, August 9th from 11:00 am to 3:00 am in our beautiful, newly renovated building for a customized "Jump Start" with our Student Council and key staff members.  You will receive your APS-issued Chromebook, Photo ID and locker assignment that day, get a first look guided tour of the school  before returning students, and learn about clubs, activities, dual credit opportunities and more! This two-hour session will be packed with information and is designed to ensure you are ready for success on the first day of classes (Wed. Aug. 10th).  We hope you will join us!

For Families new to APS, we're hosting a brief, informative welcome session for you the evening of Tuesday, August 9th from 5:30-6:30 on our campus.  Come tour the newly renovated building, meet our leadership team and some of our staff, learn about navigating ParentVue for attendance, grades and teacher communication, find out about our Parent Booster Club and Bilingual Seal Advisory Committee and other ways to get involved, ask questions and more!  We'll have light refreshments and welcoming smiles, and hope you will join us!

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions by calling (505) 247-3658 or emailing Pat or Diane.

We're excited to start this amazing school year, and to see you on August 9th!
