Staff Participates in AVID Trainings in Prep for the School Year

In preparation for a great 2021-2022 school year, as part of this week's professional development, ASD's staff participated in district-wide AVID trainings.
Elementary staff dug into "What's Love Got to Do With It", the "Why" for learning and academic achievement and Having a Growth Mindset. Middle and high school staff spent two days participating in AVID's trainings all around goal setting, using organizational strategies with kids and student engagement strategies.

Thank you AVID for the productive and energizing trainings giving staff new tools to use to engage our students.

Drone Class Picture Tradition Continues

Thanks to the planning and effort from our extraordinary PIE (Parents Involved in Education) leader, Aubrie Limebrook, today the 8th graders started a new tradition that our 4th graders started 3 years ago! Huge thanks to Davis Parker, PSHS junior, for volunteering his drone piloting expertise for the last 4 years to get a drone shot of each class shaped into the year they will graduate from high school. Such a cool memory-making tradition. And Parker also captured a 5th grade picture since they missed their 4th grade picture last year--not this time COVID, you are not messing up our traditions!
Stay tuned, final pictures to come soon. Principals hang these in the halls of their schools remembering each exiting class. Love the collaboration of this project from dedicated parent volunteer to talented high school student to support our younger students. Go Pirates.
