Parent Teacher *Student* Association
Your APG PTA is transitioning to a PTSA! This means that we will be able to have students serve as board members. We're excited to have students provide input and ideas at board meetings so we can better understand the needs and wishes of our student community. We are working with APG Student Council to recruit student board members. If you have any questions about this transition please contact PTA President Heidi Smoot at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Parents’ Guide to Student Success
What is the Parents’ Guide to Student Success? National PTA® partnered with experts on the Common Core State Standards to create grade by grade guides that reflect the Common Core State Standards. Individual guides were created for grades K-8 and two were created for grades 9-12 (one for English language arts/literacy and one for mathematics). Eleven (11) guides were created in all.
What is included in the Parents’ Guide? The Guide includes:
- Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade, once the Standards are fully implemented.
- Activities that parents can do at home to support their child’s learning.
- Methods (questions and sample topics) for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child’s teacher.
- Tips for planning for college and career (high school only).
What languages is the Guide available in? The Guide is available in both English and Spanish.
Common Core State Standards:
During our February 2014 PTA meeting we discussed the Common Core State Standards which are being implemented across the nation. Handouts from that meeting are in the news section in the column to the right. Please review the information to learn about how the CCSS will impact your child's learning experience and check out these links for more information:
