On January 27, the College Board hosted an AP Recognition Day in Richmond, Virginia, to celebrate five school divisions—King George, Prince William, Alexandria, Powhatan, and Stafford—that received the AP Honor Roll District Award in 2014 and 2015. These districts have created opportunities for students by adding new AP courses, identifying more students who are likely to succeed in AP, and offering these students extra encouragement to enroll.

The coming of the new year is a special celebration held at different times of the year and by different countries. Some communities celebrate the new year with bells, some do it by observing a moment of silence, and others do it with customs designed to bring nothing but good luck in the coming year. Although there are many differences among the celebrations, they all center around food, family, and best wishes for the months ahead.
