APS Calendars Once Again Produced at No Cost to District
APS partners with Albuquerque the Magazine and Lovelace for the fourth straight year to produce wall calendars for families, teachers and staff.
For the fourth straight year, Albuquerque Public Schools in partnership with Albuquerque the Magazine and Lovelace Health System produced 100,000 wall calendars for families, teachers and staff at no cost to the district.
Copies of the 2013-2014 school calendar were distributed to all APS schools and departments earlier this month and are being sent home with families during registration.
This is the fourth year Lovelace has sponsored the calendar, and the fifth year Albuquerque the Magazine has designed and printed it. The cost of producing enough calendars for all APS families and staff is nearly $40,000 a year.
“Once again, we want to thank our business partners for allowing us to provide this great communication tool that we couldn’t afford otherwise,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks. “Albuquerque the Magazine and Lovelace have always been great supporters of APS, and we appreciate their commitment to our students and families.”
“Lovelace is proud to sponsor the APS school calendars to not only support APS employees, families and students, but also to promote health and wellness throughout the community,” said Serena Lyons, marketing director for Lovelace.
Extra copies of the calendar are available at APS headquarters, 6400 Uptown Blvd. NE. A copy of the calendar also can be downloaded at www.aps.edu/schools/school-calendars.
