Havasu Preparatory Academy hosted a Living Wax Museum and Art Show Thursday evening, May 11th. Students from all grade levels K-8 created masterpieces from construction paper and other supplies, and showed off their artistic abilities during the art show. Mrs. Karen Schoubye, HPA Art teacher, coordinated the event.
Students also dressed as famous artists to portray who inspired them as part of a living wax museum. Fourth graders in Ms. Norman’s and Mrs. Gates’ class brought the artists to life for visitors to the campus.

The Patriotic Americans for Constitutional Education are a non-profit, non-partisan organization in Lake Havasu City dedicated to engendering and teaching patriotism among the youth. PACE has provided these free after school classes for seven years. The classes feature instruction about the founding fathers, famous quotations, patriotic songs, and an introduction to the U.S. Constitution and citizenship.
Havasu Preparatory Academy has participated with the PACE organization for six years. Mrs. Tina Whitehouse facilitates the first and second grade group, and Mrs. Dana Mills facilitates the third and fourth grade group. The students met for twelve weeks. The classes culminated on May 16th, with a public stage presentation at the LHHS Performing Arts Center, where students displayed their knowledge and skills. Havasu Prep. Academy, Starline, Smoketree, and Havasupai elementary schools participated. Students received certificates of completion, and three students in each group received an achievement trophy.
Havasu Preparatory Academy is proud to participate with the PACE organization and to be able to facilitate this learning opportunity for our students. We would like to thank the PACE organization and Mrs. Whitehouse and Mrs. Mills for facilitating.
Dear HPA Families and Friends,
As another school-year comes to a close, the PTSO wants to thank the HPA community for all of your effort and support throughout the year. As most of you know, we had an ambitious goal to raise money for more playground shade and for a water-bottle refill station for the students. The good news is that the water-bottle refill station has been delivered and installation is in process! We have also raised more than $8K, most of which will go towards the playground shade project…almost there. We have a lot on the agenda as we wrap up the school year:
If you have some time to share, we would love to have more parental participation for the 2017-2018 school year. Please consider getting involved; the more help we have, the more we can do for the teachers and students!
Best wishes for a wonderful summer,
May 4th, 2017 5:30-7:00 pm
