APS ROCKS: Join Us for 2018 APS State of the District!

Are you ready to rock with us at the 2018 APS State of the District concert? This year,  I look forward to sharing APS’ “essentials playlist”, which includes our A-sides, featured hits, and B-sides (whomp whomp), along with chart-topping student performances from this year’s tour stop on our journey of transformation. APS students, graduates, staff, friends and family are all invited to join us for the 2018 State of the District concert, which will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Friday, October 5th, at Walden Athletic Complex located at 320 Irwin St NE, Atlanta, GA 30312 . RSVP here. Special thank you to presenting sponsor Wells Fargo for supporting this very special address!

In addition to the #StateofAPS concert, we will also host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the NEW Walden Athletic Complex for the Grady cluster!

The Walden Athletics Complex is an important addition to our schools and community. It’s built on the site of the old Walden Middle School, and will be used primarily by Grady High School and schools in the Grady High School Cluster. It features a multi-purpose field for football?, soccer⚽️, lacrosse, etc., a baseball field⚾️, which is also convertible to softball, and a field house with restrooms, lockers, a concession stand, storage and more. How exciting! ?

Before you find a seat for the show, please join us from 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. to celebrate the opening of this ground breaking facility! We are grateful for the City of Atlanta’s support of this innovative complex made possible through E-SPLOST dollars! Thank you Atlanta!


Immediately following the ribbon cutting, guests are invited to take a self guided tour of the Walden Athletic Complex! Play ultimate frisbee, soccer, softball and lacrosse with the  Grady Knights, learn some moves from the Mays Raiderettes and Grady Royal Elegance and hit the gridiron with the Carver Panthers football team! North Atlanta lacrosse and South Atlanta softball teams, will also join in on the fun!
