Message from the Principal

Dear PAS Families:

All winter clubs with the except of the Coding clubs start this week.  Coding clubs start on February 14.  Click HERE for the schedule.

Kindergarten registration opened last Tuesday and will conclude on February 2.  If we have more applications than seats, a lottery will held.  To learn more, click HERE.  

Look for notifications of the February 1-2 report card schedule from your child's teacher. This is an important opportunity for you to meet with the teacher about your child's progress. 

Pancake Breakfast is back!  Sign up HERE to help, get more information on the menu and make your reservation to dine with us.  The event may sell out but we will try to accommodate everyone who wants to come.  All volunteers receive 2 free tickets! The breakfast is all you can eat breakfast cooked by the teachers and served by the middle school students.  Proceeds support the 8th grade trip to DC in May. 

On February 7, our 4th grade has been selected to participate in the National Assessment of Education Progress.  Please click here for more information and reach out to Mrs. Talbert at tsettles@philasd.org if you have questions.

Calling All Talent!  If your child is interested in participating in this year's Talent Show, please click HERE for more information.  Deadline to sign up is February 2. The show is on February 28 at 6:30pm.  We would love to showcase everyone's talent but the show is limited to 90 minutes.  Please consider pairing up with a classmate or two! 

Finally, we have 3 SSA positions available.   These are 4 hour/day positions that work with students and complete special projects as needed. If you are interested, please contact me at loverton@philasd.org.

Sponsorship Help Needed for 5K and Spring Musical

We have two big events coming up that need sponsorships from businesses: the 5K and the spring musical.

  • Did a business do work for you recently worth recommending?
  • Do you work for or frequent a business that might be receptive to learning about sponsorship?
  • Can you provide any prizes for the 5K?
  • Do you own a business and are looking to deepen community engagement?
  • Are you able to contact a few businesses for sponsorship or prizes?

If you can recommend or solicit any businesses, please let us know by submitting the sponsorship form HERE. Thank you for your help!
