Dear PAS Families:

There is Still Time to Earn a Lil' Pop Shop Party!  We just need 87 more families - that's about 10 families per grade or 3 or 4 families per class to complete the survey by TUESDAY  to earn a free Lil' Pop Shop party before the end of the year      Please take 5 minutes to complete the 23-24 School Experience survey.  Your feedback will help us plan for next year.  Click HERE to complete the survey or text it to your PAS neighbors and friends.

Calling All Past Due Library Books!

Ms. Ross is offering an amnesty for all overdue late book fees. That's right no late fees for overdue books so dig through those closets, under the bed, in the bottom of the laundry pile and return your library books to the library.  Email Ms. Ross at jross@@philasd.org if you have questions.

And finally, we still have yearbooks available. Click HERE to order.  Grades K-6 will receive theirs tomorrow.

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.

Teacher & Staff Gift Collection

The HSA is collecting donations which will be passed on to all teachers & staff as a year end bonus in recognition of their hard work all year long. Each and every teacher and staff member from classroom and specialist teachers to cafeteria and office workers to crossing guards and custodians will get a gift. Donate HERE. Thank you for your generosity!
