Family Night A Huge Success!

Aspen’s Family Night last Friday was a huge success. Matt Wilhelm performed his BMX tricks while imparting his “never-give-up” attitude teaching kids resilience and anti-bullying strategies to a packed house.  Thanks to Maureen Collier and Stephanie Freed for organizing a great evening, and to Amanda Leland-Burt, Laura Palti and Dave Collier for volunteering their time to help at the event.  Mark your calendars for our most popular Family Night of the year on February 16, 2018–it’s BINGO time!!

AFPC Choice Time

Choice Time begins the week of November 27th and runs through March 23rd.  Choice Time gives students in 1st-5th grade the unique opportunity to choose to do an indoor activity rather than go outside for recess during the winter months.  This volunteer opportunity is perfect for parents unable to volunteer at the school because of younger children.  Choice Time is the one time you can bring younger siblings with you!  To volunteer for Choice Time, please complete the form that was sent home with your child and return it to school with your child, or download it here. We MUST receive a paper form in order to be place you on the Choice Time calendar.
