Academy for Precision Learning

November 2011



Thanksgiving Greetings

Dear APL Community,
Happy Holidays from all of us here at APL!  As we continue into this school year, we certainly have a lot to be thankful for.  This year, we have over 60 learners across our K-8 student body who are led by an incredibly dedicated and talented group of teachers and paraprofessionals.  We’re also excited to continue developing strong community partnerships with groups such as Broadway Bound, YMCA and Museo Art Academy that bring tremendous enrichment opportunities to our students.  It is wonderful to see the program here at APL thriving and we thank all of you for your ongoing support.
On behalf of the staff, families and Board of Directors at APL – I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and a great holiday season.

Living Our Mission:

This coming December 1st, APL is hosting our first Dance for the middle school and 4/5 students. 

Budding Philanthropist Anna Anderson from the middle school classroom, who conceived of the event, raised over $1000 to support the APL dance. The Steele family also put proceeds from their Halloween Haunted House towards this event.  We look forward to an exciting evening for these students!

For Halloween, APL's spirit of community was truly embraced when all of the classrooms participated in a fund drive for Unicef -- raising more than $137.00.  


We are dedicated to ensuring every student’s success through accelerated academic progress, social development, character building and community involvement!

Enrichment at APL:

The Arts: Kristine Helgagar, of Museo Art Academy, has been working with all of the APL students this past Fall to broaden their artistic talents. Students' online gallery can be viewed here:

More about Museo Art Academy:

Theater: Jimmy Nixon, of Broadway Bound, is working with the students to put on two productions this coming Spring: 'You're a Good Man Charlie Brown' and ' Beauty and the Beast.'  Students have been practicing weekly and intend to go see a performance of Annie in January to see peers in action and witness the goals towards which they are working this coming April - to put on a live production!
