Message from the Principal

Dear PAS Families:

Thank you for an amazing teacher and staff appreciation week!  Check out my instagram feed for pictures from the week.  

While we have plenty of school remaining, we want to give families a heads up about school supplies for next year.  Please plan now so that your child(ren) can start the 24-25 school year off with a smooth start.  All the 24-25 school supply program details for each grade can be found here, including deadlines for participation. 

We have lots of events and fun planned as we wrap up the 23-24 school so be sure to check out our reminder section below if you have signed up yet.

New Driver and Biker Drop-Off & Pick Up Plan

In our continued effort to improve the drop off and pick up experience for our drivers and the safety of our students, we are launching a new plan for drivers and bikers.  Spruce and Locust Streets are 20 minute stopping zones and provide an entire block of space for drivers that would like to walk with their child.  Please click HERE to learn more.  We will be handing out fliers and sending them home in the pony.
