Uniforms and cold weather clothing: Parents, as your students have been growing this last year their uniforms may not be fitting properly. Please check skirt length, pant fit, shoes, etc. and ensure the uniform is a proper fit for your student. If you need help with replacing uniform items, please reach out to the school for assistance. Additionally, please ensure your students are remembering to wear coats, hats and gloves to school each day during these colder months. If you need help with these items, please contact the school.
Have an amazing break!
Springville Museum of Art- High School Art Show
Congratulations to 11th grade student Sheyla Martinez, whose artwork was selected for inclusion in the 2023 Springville Museum of Art High School Art Show! This is a prestigious art show, in which art work is juried just to make it in to the show. Congratulations, Sheyla! The High School Art Show will be open for viewing through March 24th.
APA Families, we are seeing a lot of uniform violations this year and we would like to ask for your help with ensuring your students are aware of the dress code, follow it and understand that they will not be allowed to attend class if they are in violation. When this occurs, if their uniform is being worn inappropriately or they are not wearing the correct uniform attire, they will receive a warning the first time and will be expected to correct it. If they are in violation after the first warning they will be written up. If a uniform violation cannot be corrected, emergency contacts will be notified and the student will sit at the front office until someone picks them up or brings them the correct uniform items. The majority of the violations we see are the following:
- Male pants being worn below their waist
- Incorrect footwear
- Female skirts being worn well above the knee
- Blouses and shirts not being tucked in
- Name tags missing
- Wearing jeans instead of the correct uniform pants
Please have your students review the APA uniform policy and ensure they are dressed appropriately each day.
- Congratulations to our students who competed in the Salt Lake Charter Science Fair! Isabelle Griggs, Jane Christenson, Juan Pablo Jimenez and Daniel Christenson all qualified to move on to University of Utah Fair. We are grateful for the hard work and effort put in by these outstanding students.

Sistema Notes ♪
Welcome to our last full week at Sistema Utah before we leave for Mid-Winter Break! We have been working hard to learn our pieces for our end-of-year concert in May – hooray! Please ensure that your child attends their Sistema classes daily, so they don’t fall behind in their classes. If your child is sick or has a previously scheduled appointment during afterschool hours, please call the Sistema office to let us know 385-351-3090 x 1139 or email Mrs. Christensen firstname.lastname@example.org. Each student has been invited to a Google classroom for instrument and singing classes. If your child has to miss Sistema or would like to practice at home, they can pull up their respective Google classroom at home. This can be accessed through their APA student email account.
We have many of our students excited to practice their instruments. If your child brings their instrument home, please have them put it by their backpack in the evening, so they remember to bring it to class. Instrument care during the winter months is essential. Please do not have your child keep their instrument in the car overnight. The severe cold could damage their instrument.
We would like to thank all students who participated in our service project. They made about 200 sandwiches for the homeless. Way to go serving those in our community!
Parent volunteers are needed! We could use a couple of volunteers to help with our no-missing homework incentive this Friday from 3:50-4:30 p.m. Contact Mrs. Christensen email@example.com if you are available to help.
Please place the following dates on your calendar as we have some No Sistema days coming up:
- February 20-24, 2023 – No School/No Sistema – Mid-Winter Break
Thank you all for your support. We sure appreciate our Sistema students and their families!
