PAPA administration would like to thank the Governing Council (GC), School Advisory Council (SAC), staff and the PTSO President for their assistance in completing the 2014 APS Charter Renewal Application! PAPA’s Charter has to be renewed every five years. This is the third renewal. APS will review the application and make a final decision by January, 2015. Click the links to check out what PAPA has been doing over the past four years and review our goals for the next cycle. The information is a culmination of effort by the PAPA school community based on data and input through surveys, groups and one-on-one. The final review was performed by the SAC and GC. The application was approved for submission to APS on 9/30/14.

In an effort to reward academic excellence, we will be offering a discounted academic trip to Los Angeles to the top five academic students in grades 9 – 12 for first semester grades. For a low cost of $150 (plus $$ for food), students will:
Travel by Amtrak to Los Angeles, California
Tour historic Union Station
Tour La Brea Tar Pits and the Page Museum
Visit LA’s Historic Farmer’s Market and The Grove (a Hollywood “A” lister’s ‘place to be seen’)
Tour Los Angeles County Museum of Art (a complex of multiple art museums)
Stay at the Park Plaza Lodge Hotel
The cost to students includes: train fare, hotel fees, and museum entrances. Students will need additional funds for their meals and snacks.
The trip is planned for January 16 – 19, 2014 and will be chaperoned by Dr. and Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Benavides and Mrs. Weems, and 2 parent volunteers.
