Celebrating Our Students of the Week

The 10th annual recognition program is sponsored by the APS Education Foundation and Nusenda Credit Union.

Schools are selected at random to choose a student of the week. The task falls to the principal who often seeks staff nominations.

The APS Student of the Week is featured on the APS website, Twitter (@ABQschools), and the district newsletter The Core. They also are included on the schools page of the Albuquerque Journal on Mondays.  

“The truth is, we have hundreds of students of the week, every week, in APS. But this feature at least allows our community to focus on one special kid each week as a representation of many of our students," said APS Education Foundation Executive Director Shannon Barnhill.

Congratulations to our first Student of the Week for 2020-21:

Heidi Dinkel, 4th-grader at Matheson Park Elementary School
