Thanksgiving Greetings

 
Welcome to the inaugural issue of APL's 2010-2011 newsletter.  We are off to a fantastic start in what promises to be a great year for our school.
 
It is amazing to me the journey APL has been on in just four short years.  To think -- this all started with just 4 students and a big dream, and has already grown to 42 students across 4 classrooms with an incredibly talented and engaged staff.  The Board of Directors is also finalizing our 5 year Strategic Plan to guide our growth and development built around our core Mission:
 
The Academy for Precision Learning is a K-8 school dedicated to the success of all students -- both typically developing and those across the Autism Spectrum -- learning within an academically challenging and socially vibrant environment.
 
APL uses high quality, data driven approaches -- including Direct Instruction, Applied Behavior Analysis and Precision Teaching -- to create individualized learning plans specifically designed for each student.
 
We are dedicated to ensuring every student's success through accelerated academic progress, social development, character building and community involvement.
 
I am so grateful to be part of APL's journey -- but none of this would be possible without all of you.  The support we have received from friends, family, professionals and generous donors throughout the community has allowed us to continue building this unique school.  Our goal is to be the very best at what we deliver and continue working to scale this model to touch as many deserving children as we can.  On behalf of Alison Moors, myself and all of us at APL, we thank you for joining us in this journey and we wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jennifer Annable
APL Executive Director
