Celebrating Our Students of the Week

The APS Education Foundation and Nusenda Credit Union sponsor the annual recognition program.

Beginning the week of Sept. 5, an Albuquerque Public Schools Student of the Week will be recognized each week during the 2022-2023 school year. 

They will be featured on the APS website, social media, and 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. Choosing a student 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.
