It has been a fun filled and busy week here at AmPark! We start with a shout out to all of our amazing 2nd & 3rd Grade Owl Athletes who showed up and showed out for the first ever AmPark basketball playoff game! They were cheered on throughout the game by not only their families and peers but also AmPark's wonderful 5th Grade Cheerleaders! Here's a shot of the action from Bonnie's owl's nest perch of an office view : ). Congratulations to all of our student athletes, and to coaches Craig, Darius, & Elvira for making magic happen with them!
A huge congratulations to all of our students who participated in AmPark's Science Fair this week! The projects were so thoughtful and creative that our team of judges had quite a time deliberating on the winners.
