2016-2017 APTA Calendar

Each year, a local printer has donated the printing costs of our APTA calendar. Unfortunately, this donation was not available to us for the upcoming school year. Because of that, we were faced with a decision – spend over $1000 to print the calendar or spend that money on school and teacher support.

Because the school has done an AMAZING job creating an online calendar and because we wanted to ensure that we had the funds for program support, we have decided to provide a downloadable version of the calendar this year.

We know people will miss getting this on orientation day, but faced with the choice, we felt that school programs should come first.

We’ve also decided to feature art from the art show throughout the our website.

If we are able to get a sponsor for next year, we hope to bring back the calendar in print form. Until then, you can download the APTA 2016 2017 calendar.

Spring Meeting & Farewell Reception

Thank you to the almost 200 members of the community who joined us last night for our final APTA meeting of the year and reception to honor Mr. Waford’s 33 exceptional years at Anchorage School! For those of you that couldn’t make it, take a look at the presentation here: APTA SPRING MEETING 2016

At the meeting, we presented Mr. Waford with a gift from the students – a book of all of their interpretations of “What does a principal do all day?” as well as this picture of all of his current students. Many thanks to Michelle Arnold for taping out the shape of an anchor on the gym floor and Nancy Jacobson for taking the picture!
