End of year closing in at APES

Principal of Alexander Park Elementary talks about the school and what is happening going into the last months.

Principal APES

For  all of us at Alexander Park School, the next few weeks will continue to fly by as we see the end of this school year just around the corner.

While it may seem a little early to be thinking about the 2012-2013 school year, staff is in the midst of making plans for next year.

As we are beginning to make organizational plans, it would be helpful if parents would notify the school as soon as possible.

The end of April and the beginning of May has been a cultural extravaganza for us.

We were treated to the amazing performance of ‘No Strings Attached’ by Lady Grey students.

The Ernest Manning High School band from Calgary gave a wonderful concert and we are excited about the Golden Secondary School band coming at the end of the month. Parks Canada’s presentation of ‘Wild Sings’ was highly entertaining for both students and staff.

The talented Masabo troupe shared traditional cultures of various African nations through music, dance and storytelling. A.P.E.S. students and staff are extremely fortunate to have been treated to so many entertaining performances. Just a reminder about the StrongStart Early Learning Centre at A.P.E.S.

It’s a free drop in program for babies and preschoolers up to the age of 5 along with their parents.

Children have the chance to interact with other little ones and take part in many different activities such as drawing, colouring, singing, building, gym time, and listening to stories.

The centre is open Monday and Friday from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:45 a.m. -11:45 a.m., and Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

 

Lastly, a big THANK YOU to all of the parents and community members, who continue to volunteer their time at the school.
