Dear Patrons of the Arkadelphia School District:
It is my privilege to welcome all of you to the 2012-2013 school year. We have exciting opportunities on the horizon for our students, and we hope you will be an active part of their educational experience this year. Arkadelphia Public Schools is anticipating the opening of our New Tech Academy at Arkadelphia High School in August. With the exciting announcement of the Arkansas STEM Works grant initiative, Arkadelphia is poised to be a leader in the most innovative educational program in the country.
We are dedicated at Arkadelphia Public Schools to preparing all of our students for the future. From our nationally recognized Schools of the 21st Century program to our commitment to the Arkansas Advanced Initiative in Mathematics & Science (AAIMS), our team is continuously raising the bar so that our vision of excellence and quality will be realized. These collaborative partnerships continue to build a strong school-community and are the cornerstone of our success.
Our team looks forward to another year of exciting learning experiences and academic achievements for our students. We are also anticipating high-quality extracurricular events as our students exhibit their skills and talents through athletics, the arts and other special activities. It is our privilege to nurture the “whole child” as we help our young people achieve and succeed.
Please join us as a partner for the upcoming school year as we work to make this year one of our best! My wish for all of our stakeholders – students, staff, parents and supportive partners is that the upcoming term will be a year of increasing achievement and rewarding involvement in your school and community.
Donnie Whitten, Ed.S.
