Hello Jaguars families,


On behalf of the Aprende Parent/Teacher/Student Organization (PTSO), I would like extend a heartfelt welcome to all our new and returning students and their families to Aprende Middle School.  We hope each of you have had an opportunity to relax and have some fun this summer and are ready to get back to school!


As we kick off a new year, we hope you will visit the PTSO table at Meet the Teacher and Curriculum Night.  In addition to answering your questions and directing you to where you need to go, we will be selling Aprende Apparel , accepting donations for our paper drive and providing important info about upcoming events.  As a special refreshing treat, Rita’s Italian Ice will be selling their ices for $4 each, with $1 from every sale coming back to the PTSO.  

There are two important events coming up:

 Meet and Greet Breakfast


Parents are invited to join their students for a light breakfast and chat with the teachers and other parents. Students must be with their parent(s) or guardian to attend.


6th grade: Tuesday, August 12th @ 7:55 – 8:25 am

7th grade: Wednesday, August 13th @ 7:55 – 8:25 am

8th grade: Thursday, August 14th, @ 7:55 – 8:25 am


Back to School Paper Drive

Your donation of $3 (a ream) or $30 (a case or 10 reams) will go towards the purchase of much needed printer/copy paper for the school.  Donations will be accepted at Meet the Teacher Night and at the Meet and Greet Breakfast. If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute, please use the attached order form and return it to the school with your child. If you are sending a donation with your child, we ask for checks made out Aprende PTSO;  no cash, please.  Thank you in advance for your donation.

To stay connected and informed on what’s happening with the PTSO, visit our website at www.aprendeptso.org  and like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/AprendePTSO.   Both are updated throughout the year.  We also encourage you to read our monthly email newsletter, “The Parent Connection”, which contains details on all PTSO activities.

It is only through your support that we can continue to be successful in our mission to enrich the experience of all students at Aprende.  We welcome your participation and input and look forward to working together to make this a great year for our students
