APS Activities

At APS we believe that co-curricular activities are a winning part of a complete education. Involvement provides opportunities for character development and unique learning labs for valuable life lessons and universal values such as teamwork, sportsmanship, self-discipline and hard work. Students are encouraged to participate in activities of their own interest and choosing from a wide variety from academic and athletic areas, to service-oriented groups and the fine arts.

Students come first at Arnold Public Schools, and are challenged to be all they can be.  We set high expectations for academics, behavior, and character development. Students who participate in activities follow a strict set of guidelines for eligibility set forth by the Nebraska State Activities Association as well as those written by APS school board and administration.

Our Administrators, Office Staff, and School Board Members all work together to provide structure, support, and guidance to our staff and students at Arnold Public Schools.

Duct Tape Challenge Update

Students are starting to get into a routine because the AR points are climbing. Mr. McIntosh may still be feeling pretty safe, but we'll see. The goal this year is 3,500 points and students are at 665 points as a school.

Although class sizes and the length of books vary, many classes set their own goals as well as the school-wide goal so here is a breakdown of points earned by class:

K - 71 points
1st - 23 points
2nd - 13 points
3rd - 55 points
4th - 41 points
5th - 4 points
6th - 118 points
7th - 106 points
8th - 25 points
9th - 47 points
10th - 42 points
11th - 113 points
12th - 7 points

It will be exciting to see how colorful Mr. McIntosh is with the various duct tape if students end up reaching their school-wide goal. Happy reading!!
