Students, please go to http://goo.gl/forms/pEMT1ZctwF to complete a 5-10 minute survey on schedule options, including keeping our current schedule, for next year. We hope to have input from everyone as we move forward in this process. While you will be asked to sign in to Google@APS, individual responses will be anonymous except by grade level to help us look at trends by curricular areas. The survey will end on January 27, 2015.
Congratulations to Yorktown Junior Tommy Casey, who is a finalist in the Arlington County Decal contest! The winner's design will appear on every vehicle registered in Arlington County next year.
