Co-Presidents’ Message

The APC Campus Clean-Up last Sunday was a huge success! Over sixty students, parents and community members showed up to help trim trees & hedges, pull weeds, landscape the Main Quad garden beds, paint the Small Gym exterior wall, and power wash key areas on campus. The event was a perfect example of #DonsShowUp! (And make sure to check out the Blueprint’s fantastic article about it!) Thank you to ALL the volunteers who made the effort to participate and a special thank you to AHS parents Matt & Jill Perlman for helping to coordinate the clean-up. 

If you missed our second APC Dons Dialogue last Friday, you can find videos of all past Dons Dialogues on the APC website. Notably, Principal Bell gave an informative overview of the new Sandy Hook Promise Anonymous Reporting System along with our school safety protocols. 

Homecoming is around the corner! Encourage your student (#DonsShowUp!) to participate in all the activities. The events kick-off today with Homecoming Hallway Decorating on campus from 10am-3pm. Homecoming activities are often some of the most fun events of the whole year. 

Speaking of Homecoming, it’s not too late to purchase an ASB Card for your student. ASB stands for Associated Student Body, which is the leadership organization on campus that coordinates student activities. These events include student rallies, Class & Teacher/Student Dodgeball, Powderpuff Football, Club activities, discounted tickets to the upcoming Homecoming Dance & other dances, as well as FREE entrance to any non-NCS sporting event on campus. The card can ultimately save you money on school events.
