Tony, who was here for Kindergarten through Ninth Grade and graduated from ACDS in 1997, attended Westminster School in Connecticut and Aspen High. He went to UC Boulder for a degree in Film Studies. And yes, Tony is the son of PreK teacher Paula Prikryl and her husband Milan; his two sisters also went to ACDS. We recently asked Tony to answer our 5 favorite questions for alums.
Your best memory of ACDS?
Building ski jumps and snow caves with Huffy on Outdoor Ed.
Shelley Supplee, Huffy, and really, everyone.
How prepared were you for your next level of education?
Very much so, both socially and academically.
Finish the sentence: I am who I am today because ACDS...
. . . laid a solid foundation in community values, high standards of learning both in and out of the classroom, and a respect for the outdoors.

Green all the way.
