Chromebooks for Everyone!

digital learning

APS recently purchased Chromebooks for each student!

Why Chromebooks? We are working to improve student achievement by personalizing learning and increasing student ownership of their learning!  Students in Middle School are learning to use Google Apps like Google Classroom, Docs, Gmail, and more! Students in younger grades are using their Chromebooks to focus on reading and math skills! Everyone is learning to be safe online.  

Chromebooks are a safe, fun way to use technology to learn!

Do you pick your child up from school by car? Please read:

If you see our bus in front of school, please park and wait in the gravel parking lot across the street. 

For the safety of our students and you, please DO NOT enter our parking lot until after the bus has exited our parking lot.

In order to safely get our students on the school bus and get the bus out on the street, it is very important that you share this information with anyone who picks your child up from school!
