Important Message from the HSA President

Hello AOLP Families, I hope all is well with you. With the end of school in sight, we are beginning to discuss next year's agenda for the HSA. As we do so, I see trends with volunteering and participation in events that I believe will affect us in the near future. I would like for all of us to meet and discuss openly and share ideas on how to build our school community and support AOLP. In the next few weeks we will have an open HSA meeting and I request that each family have someone attend if at all possible. Please come with questions, feedback and ideas. We rely on your support to hold events throughout the year to build community among our families and support AOLP. Please try to attend; it is important to all of us and our children. Stay tuned for the date and time! Thank You, Matthew Dunn Your HSA President
