Breaking Down the Walls

As a campus, we are lucky to be bringing back Breaking Down the Walls for all 10th and 11th graders. It is a wonderful program funded by APC for students to build relationships with one another, break down barriers between them and truly start to understand each other. Feedback from last year was extremely positive. All 10th and 11th graders are participating and the alpha breakdown is as follows:

  • Wednesday, Jan 22: Last Names A-Go
  • Thursday, Jan 23: Last Names Gr-O
  • Friday, Jan 24: Last Names P-Z
