Beginning the week of Aug. 23, a Student of the Week will be featured each week during the 2021-2022 school year on the APS website, Twitter (@ABQschools), and in the district newsletter The Core. They also are featured in the Albuquerque Journal on Mondays. Schools are selected at random to choose a student of the week. The task falls to the principal who often seeks staff nominations.

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