DRIVELINE: 2nd GRADE FAMILIES

2nd GRADE PARENTS: SHOW PPA HOW IT'S DONE!

2nd 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 October, we'd like our 2nd grade families to sign up (or just show up) for volunteer spots in Help Counter. If you do not have a 2nd grade student but enjoy volunteering in driveline - we still need you! Please consider signing up today! Log into Help Counter and click on "Traffic."

 

DRIVELINE COMPETITION: 1st GRADE - SEPTEMBER RESULTS

The results are in! Drumroll please! September’s driveline was spearheaded by our 1st grade families. We had 19 out of 63 families help us out, with a total of 59.32 hours volunteered! Thank you for your efforts! Let’s see how 2nd grade families participate during the month of October! Good luck!

Attention siblings of currently enrolled students!  It is time to start thinking about 2020-2021 enrollment!

 

Please fill out an intent to enroll form for any sibling(s) that you would like to have attend PPA in 2020-2021.  We can only give sibling priority if we know about the sibling(s)! Please note that siblings are not guaranteed placement, but are given priority after enrolled students, founding families, and staff.  Please contact registrar@parkerperformingarts.org with any questions.

 

SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATE FORUM AT PPA!

As you are aware, there is an election around the corner.  I addition to two important state-wide propositions, there are three Douglas County Board of Education Director positions on the ballot.  Elections matter, and I want to encourage all of you to do your research, get involved, and VOTE. The Alliance of Douglas County Charter School is hosting a forum for the six candidates for the Douglas County Board of Education next week.  The forum is being moderated by two charter leaders and will be in OUR PPA theater. We would love to see as many of you as possible.  School Board Candidate Forum: Thursday, October 10, 6:00-8:00PM
