THE LITTLE  MERMAID

Thank you to all the students that auditioned for The Little Mermaid. We are proud of each of you! Attached is the cast list.

 

SAC MEMBERSHIP

The School Accountability Committee is looking for two members of our parent community to fill vacant positions on the team. The committee meets monthly to review school data and make recommendations to the board for improvement. If you are interested in serving PPA in this capacity, please send a letter of intent to Principal Burgess by September 6.

 

LOST AND FOUND

All lost and found items are picked up on the Friday closest to the end of each month. The specific pick up date is on the website's “School Events” calendar as a reminder for families.  We will be adding a plastic bin to store water bottles that still have liquid in them to help minimize spills. Please encourage your child(ren) to take home any of their items prior to August 30th - as it will all be gone the following Monday. We do not donate clothing with the PPA logo, as we will give these specific items to families in need. We do our best to return clothing items with student names written on them, and all other items are donated to a local charity.
