A Note from Teresa Clark , Archway Headmaster, and Grant Goodrich, Prep Headmaster
Dear Parents,

As the last week of school comes to a close, it is satisfying to reflect upon the many accomplishments of the students and parent volunteers. We are proud of our students and are happy to honor them for their hard work and virtuous behavior in end-of-year ceremonies or with other kinds of recognition.  We hope you are able to attend the ceremonies that are applicable to your student/students. To all of our volunteer parents who have worked selflessly for the good of the students and staff, we thank you for the charitable ways you have effected joy and smiles among the members of our Anthem community.  You are a blessing to the school.

We look forward to partnering with the newly elected PSO board members to continue the good work of our current PSO board.  Please welcome Johanna Marais as President, Stacey Whitley, Melissa Luft, Bahia Norris, and Anna Hall as Co-Vice Presidents, Megan Magerkurth as Secretary, and Lori Fischer as Treasurer.  Opportunities for joining the PSO to help plan and implement fun and important activities will be included in the weekly PSO newsletters during the academic year.  We would like to give special thanks to Shantel Riley, Sonia Jurek, Tisha Huebsch, and Amy Hughes for their many contributions. See ATTACHMENT  for more details.

Thank you for the many ways you have supported the school.  Your input, understanding, contributions, and encouragement are very much appreciated by the entire staff.  It has been an honor and a privilege for us to serve you.  We hope you have an enjoyable and relaxing summer and look forward to seeing you in August!

Warm regards,

Teresa Clark                      Grant Goodrich

This summer (July 22-26) Anthem Prep will host the One10 basketball camp (formerly Advantage Basketball) where players will develop great ball handling skills, shooting and games.  Both boys and girls, from 3rd grade to 12th, are welcome to attend. Deadline to sign up is June 5th.  Please sign up early, spots are limited.

The regular, non AP price is $260 – AP gets a big discount at just $175. This camp is VERY much worth the cost (plus AP Basketball gets $25 for every signed up player). You won’t find many camps in that price range that go 8-5 all week and definitely not in our home gym 🙂

Sign up online and make sure to use the code on the flyer attached to get the discount. Please sign up early, spots are limited. Deadline to sign up is June 5th.

Please see attached FLYER for sign up details and coupon code.
