Tierra Antigua Elementary School Website Launched

The APS Web Team is thrilled to announce that the new Tierra Antigua Elementary School website is now live!

Tierra Antigua is the ninth school to be migrated into the new district-wide school website system, School Loop (learn more about the school site project). And we’ll admit it… it’s also one of our favorites. Take a peek and tell me if you disagree – this site just looks so good.

The new site replaces an ancient static HTML site that wasn’t doing the school justice. Principal Jami Jacobson, Technology Teacher Hunter Emery, and Technology Coordinator Mona Reindorp did a fantastic job on their new site! You can really tell that Tierra Antigua is a fun place to be.

The new site has so many exciting features:

  • A search bar at the top of every page
  • School news and events prominently displayed on the school homepage, where they’re easy for families to find
  • Automatic district news and events feeds, so that parents can go one place to get the latest information from both their school and the district
  • Instant translation of each and every page by clicking on the Translation link at the bottom of the page
  • Perhaps most importantly, the ability for school staff to update and improve the site using intuitive, web-based tools

Congratulations and thanks to Ms. Jacobson, Hunter, and Mona! We couldn’t have created the new site without their guidance, enthusiasm, and webmaster skills.
