Eighth Grade Class of 2022 Graduates Tonight!
Another APS Graduation Day is here! As an APS family, we have spent the last ten years preparing these students for this day! Read below to hear some of their thoughts about APS and their time here with us.
During my time at APS the most important thing I learned is to be aware that others have different opinions and working past differences can help you make better friends.
During my time at APS, The most important thing I learned is to be Nice to the people that are not your friends so they can become your friends.
APS is special because you have smaller classes so you can get more help from teachers if needed, and with the small classes all the students are closer than what they could be in a bigger school.
APS is a good school because they have the best math teacher and joke teller, Mr. Ponder.
One thing that makes APS special is it really feels like a home, even to new students.
Altenburg taught me how to be a better person.
APS is a great school because there are amazing teachers and friendly people.
Awards Assembly Success!

APS Calendar 2022-2023
Mrs. Debbie Haertling
It is hard to believe that the 2021-2022 school year is ending tomorrow. It seems like just yesterday we were starting school. This has been a wonderful school year filled with great memories for both students and APS staff. We would like to thank all of our parents for giving APS the honor of helping your child "grow' and "bloom" this year. I would like to share this letter from an unknown author that I found and have altered slightly, as this sums up my feelings about your children and our school year.
We've worked with your flower
and helped it to grow.
We're returning it now,
but we want you to know.
This flower is precious:
As dear as can be.
Love, take care of it.
And you will see
A bright new bloom
with every day.
It grew and blossomed
In such a wonderful way-
In August, just a bud
then January, a bloom.
Now a lovely blossom-
We're returning to you.
Remember, this flower,
As dear as can be-
Though rightfully yours,
Part will always be with me!
Have a wonderful and safe summer with your children. We look forward to seeing them back on August 22nd. where we will CELEBRATE that each child is custom made!
