School will host Family Night with University gospel & step teams to celebrate on July 15th
Akron, OH – July 13, 2021 – Students at Akron Preparatory School will have the opportunity to participate in a new dance program in the upcoming school year. The dance program is an elective course and will focus on self-expression as well as fitness.
To celebrate the launch of the new program, Akron Prep is hosting a Family Night & Picnic on the lawn of the Joy Park Community Center this Thursday, July 15th from 4PM-7PM. The event features entertainment by University step teams & gospel choirs and is free for community members. Families will enjoy a free grilled hamburger or hotdog, snow cone, face painting, lawn games, music, dancing, and more! Families interested in the dance program and enrollment will have the opportunity to meet with school staff during the event.
“We wanted to offer Dance as another way for our students to learn how to express themselves. During our pandemic school year, we noticed our students found value in expressing themselves through our fine arts program so we made the addition of Dance a priority in our planning for the upcoming school year.” says Ashley Miles, principal at Akron Preparatory School.
Akron Preparatory School is an established, tuition-free public charter school serving Grades K-8 in the East End neighborhoods of Akron. Akron Prep values high expectations for academics and behavior. The school is led by Ashley Miles, an educator and school administrator with over 15 years of experience.
