DRIVELINE: 1ST GRADE FAMILIES
1ST GRADE PARENTS: SHOW PPA HOW IT'S DONE!
1st grade families - it's your turn! To help fill crucial driveline volunteer roles, we are asking parents in each grade level to make a special effort to volunteer one month of the school year. In September, we'd like our 1st grade families to sign up (or just show up) for volunteer spots in Help Counter. If you do not have a 1st grade student but enjoy volunteering in driveline - we still need you! Please consider signing up today! Log into Help Counter and click on "Traffic."
PPA BOARD OF DIRECTORS--MEMBERS WANTED
The Parker Performing Arts Board of Directors are looking for a community member to fill a vacant spot on the board. Specifically, the board is looking for someone with a law background. If you are interested in serving PPA in a Director capacity, please send a letter of intent to email@example.com
We have discovered that some families are following archived channels from the 2018-2019 school year. Please take a moment to check your computer/phone. You should be following channels from the current school year. From your computer: log in and look in the upper left corner of your screen. Look for “change school.” Click there, and make sure you are NOT on the archived 2018-2019 school year. From your phone: look at the top of your screen, under Announcements. Click that top bar, and make sure you are not on the archived channels. The title should be Parker Performing Arts (without the 2018-2019 year listed). If you have any questions, please contact SchoolBzz. https://sites.google.com/

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.
