Senior Interns Send-Off and A-B Administrator Recognized for National Award

Interns on Their Way....We wished more than 150 of our senior interns well today before they begin their internships on Monday. Tremendous thanks go to staff members Genevieve Hammond and Linda Murphy for overseeing our internship program and providing opportunities for our seniors to finish out the year exploring career options and having real-world experience. Our new Colonial mascot greeted students at the senior entrance, and the senior staircase was decorated in honor of the Class of 2017. It was a spirited day, and some of our seniors even brought their four-legged friends to help celebrate...

Congratulations to Associate Principal Beth Baker for being one of three national recipients of the Educational Theatre Association's 2017 Administrator's Award! Beth was nominated by drama teacher and Proscenium Circus Advisor Jessica Harms for her dedication and hard work on behalf of PC. A-B is so fortunate to have Beth's commitment to the arts and advocacy of theatre programs.

ABRSD's May Expanding Our Notion of Success newsletter focuses on social emotional learning.  As defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)SEL is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.  

I hope you all have a great weekend~
