Weekly Update: September 16, 2019

Dear Families,
As a charter school, we are unique, in our choice to be a part of a school community. Everyone who attends PPA does so out of choice, and our community building is purposeful. One important way we do that is through relationship building. Maintaining positive relationships with the adults who interact with your student on a regular basis is a critical component of your child's education. Please join us Thursday afternoon/evening and Friday morning for parent/teacher conferences. Details about conferences can be found below and we hope you will make it a priority to join us. Reminder: Thursday is a half day and Friday there is NO SCHOOL.


Have a great week!
With gratitude,
Ms. Burgess

Dear Families,
I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful, sun-filled weekend with your friends and family. While it still feels like summer, fall is approaching quickly and we are fully in school mode. Many after- school activities are starting this week, including rehearsal for the fall musical, chess club and Spanish club. We are thrilled to be able to offer activities the include as many of our students as possible. Please make sure you communicate after school plans with your carpools to help the afternoons run as smoothly as possible.

A reminder that we have a long weekend coming up and there is no school on Monday, September 2 in honor of Labor Day.

Make it a great week!
With gratitude,

Weekly Update: August 19, 2019

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Back to School Night this week. Elementary families should plan to attend on Tuesday night at 6pm and middle school families on Wednesday night. The evening will start in the theater with a presentation from administration and from there, you will be invited to follow your child(ren)'s schedule and meet all of their teachers. This is a great time to build relationships with the adults who work with your children.

If you are looking to connect with other members of the PPA community, please consider attending the PCA general meeting on Thursday morning at 8:30 am in the cafeteria.

Make it a great week!
In partnership,

Dear Families,
Thank you to everyone for a successful first (short) week back to school. We have enjoyed catching up with all of our returning students and meeting all of our new ones. Everyone seems to be in good spirits and ready for another great year at PPA.

As a reminder for next week, please bring a little extra patience to the driveline as everyone is adjusting to new routines. It should be smooth sailing very soon!

Make it a great week!
