Great job, Cadets who had special parts at our Veterans Day Program! 1st and 2nd grade classes have their BIG Christmas Program on Friday, December 6th. Doors open at 5:30. ATTENDANCE is mandatory! Classes: Hiller, Doege, Owens, Sorrell and Lester! More info to come.

Tickets on sale now for the APA Jazz Band’s Tuesday, Dec. 3rd performance at the Festival of Trees at the historic and beautiful Paramount Theatre in downtown Anderson, IN. Come see the group’s first performance alongside other area jazz bands. Exact performance time TBA.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children/students. Half of the proceeds from pre-sale tickets goes back to the APA band program. Please have students bring in cash or a check to the Anderson Preparatory Academy to purchase tickets before Dec. 3rd.

We have had a wonderful time with our fall art work and some of it is coming home. However, some of it is staying in their portfolios here at school for the art show here in December.

We still have specific needs of multi-colored yarn, Elmer’s runny glue, zip-loc baggies both quart and gallon.

Kindergarten has been working on their Indian blankets, an understanding of thick and thin lines and cutting skills. I have done a Native American blanket dance and brought several of my Elder’s traditional rattles to share my story. (sorry the pic is side ways)

1st grade has been working on an abstract wax resistance piece. They are beautiful!!

2nd grade has been planning out radial designs and completing them.

3rd and 4th grade have been gathering, remaking, mixing old with new clay to begin to make a seed pot. I’ve been teaching them the ways the Elders from the reservation have taught me.

I am so blessed to have my knowledge, skill, and interactions daily in teaching with your children.
