I am very excited for the new school year and to be once again serving as the President of the APA. I have been an Ansonia Tiger my entire life and I take great pride in this (perhaps I get this from my grandfather, the one and only Papa Tiger!). I understand the importance of the small town community and appreciate it greatly. I have two children, Levi and Peyton. My main responsibility is to oversee the organization and make sure it runs smoothly and efficiently. I encourage everyone to join us for our monthly meetings to make your voice heard and your vote count! ~April Billenstein

Co-Treasurer My name is Christina Billenstein, treasurer of your Ansonia Parents Alliance. My husband and I live outside of Lightsville with our three children Mason, Lilian, and Lorin. I am a very active volunteer at the school working as Box Tops Coordinator, Tiger Book Club Co-coordinator, and Santas' secret shop co-coordinator. I work at JT's Brew & Grill in Greenville as a waitress and relief manager. I would encourage you to volunteer at your child's school because their is nothing better than walking into a classroom full of kids all wanting to hug you for helping out!

Go Tigers!

Secretary Hello!  My name is Sheila Sebring and I look forward to being an active member of the APA.  I have one daughter, Hailey, who attends Ansonia High School.  She is active in sports, which keeps us busy!  We moved to Ansonia about 5 years ago from Indiana and have been looking for a way to get involved with the school.  I am excited to have this opportunity with the APA.
