Our students are facing unprecedented times. It's now, more than ever, that their education is proving its value in daily life. At APA, our approach to learning is long-standing and proven, teaching kids how to think, not what to think. Each day students decide how to approach new challenges, from staying active while learning-at-home to programs and clubs they are not able to participate in during the dismissal. What may be most challenging to them is how to maintain relationships from afar. While parents and teachers help navigate youth through tough times, we are proud to share stories of students working hard to stay connected even though they are apart.
Through the leadership of Eva Peterson, our West Valley 2 Cheer Team is staying connected through fun videos and "Weekly Challenges." Their platform is called "Eagle News," where each student sends in a short video or picture sharing a positive message to their friends and classmates. Each week, they submit challenges for fun and engagement. Please enjoy this great video.
