Announcements Week of 12/12/22

A message from PAPA: Announcements Week of 12/12/22


Final exams are taking place this week. Here is the schedule:

Please note, although there is not school Friday 12/16/22 (Staff In-Service) Seniors do have a mandatory showcase panel from 9:30 am- 1:00 pm in the Choir Room.

  • Thank you for taking gift tags from the giving tree! Please send the gifts in today, wrapped and with the tag attached so we can get it to the student.
  • The Spring Dance DVDs are being distributed to students during lunch this week. Please ask your child if they have picked up their copy yet.
  • In case of inclement Weather: Local radio and television stations post APS delays and school closings.  PAPA will follow APS’ lead with school closings.  PAPA will close if all of APS delays (district-wide).  Keep in mind that PAPA is not included in East Mountain Schools.  Any days needed to be made up will be added at the end of the school year. If a student lives within the boundaries of another district, parents have the discretion to follow that district’s weather-related schedule changes.  Parents need to call the attendance line (830-3128 ext. 5) to report a weather-related absence by 9:00a.m., and the student must make up all missed work.
  • PAPA Students can go see UNM Theatre and Dance Shows for only FIVE DOLLARS! Use the code UNMtheatreanddance (all one word) either online or at the ticket window on UNM campus. Check out the schedule of shows in the MS and HS Google Classroom.
  • Ask your student if they have tried out the Alongside App. Alongside is a nonjudgmental mental health chatbot that helps in times of stress anxiety sadness anger try it today. Alongside is a virtual counselor in every student’s pocket. It allows schools to reach all students who need support.
  • Mama Mia auditions are being posteponed until the beginning of the spring semester. Repeat, if you have signed up to audition for Mama Mia!, auditions are being postponed until the beginning of the spring semester. If you’ve already signed up to audition, there’s nothing more you need to do. We will contact you the first week of the spring semester to give you the new dates for 8th period auditions. If you haven’t signed up to audition yet and are interested, you now have more time to prepare! Find an OPEN AUDITIONS poster on campus, scan the QR code and complete the form. We look forward to seeing you!
