I am a builder when I am utterly reliable (changing the world for the better)

Secondary Parents and Students, we are thrilled to offer our secondary student “Lagoon Day” on Thursday, June 2nd. The park is open from 10am to 9pm. Discount tickets to Lagoon for students are available online with the link and promo code included below. American Prep is kindly providing transportation TO Lagoon ONLY for students with no Fs nor NC marks during 4th quarter. Students can get a permission slip from the HS or JH office and that permission slip serves as their “ticket” to board a bus on June 2nd at 9:15am. The buses will leave promptly at 9:30am. No buses are scheduled to bring students back from Lagoon, so please plan accordingly.
*Students may plan to attend Lagoon on June 2nd or remain at home, there will be no secondary student attendance on campus that day.

West Valley 2 PAC Election
We have 3 vacancies to fill for our 2023 Parent Advisory Council and one candidate has volunteered, making this an uncontested election. APA’s policy states: “If there are no contested seats at the end of the 21-day notice period, an election need not take place. Uncontested seats will instead be filled by majority election of the remaining PAC members.”
Our current Parent Advisory Committee will vote on the following candidate during their August meeting.
- Albanie Stoddard
I am very interested in joining the board and being able to learn more about APA and how we as parents can help support the growth of students attending APA. I am fairly new to the district as I currently have a Kindergartener attending, however next year I will have a First Grader and another Kindergartener and we are so excited to continue our journey at APA. I can’t say enough good things about our experience thus far.
I currently serve as a member on my community HOA Board so I would say I have experience being a part of a Board and the level of expectations required with it. I also consider myself a very involved parent and jump at any opportunity to be at the school with my child, volunteering, or helping with celebrating our staff.
Our returning council includes the following parents:
- Monica Barreto
- Valter Barreto
- Jeff Maroney
- Amie Jacobson
- Irene Christenson
- Christopher Nash
- Information on our current Parent Advisory Committee and Land Trust duties can be found on our website at https://www.americanprep.org/land-trust/
We look forward to serving you for another year!
