Dear Parents/Guardians of PPA,

The school year is coming to a close and we have had an eventful year!  The BEST news is that our students’ reading levels have significantly improved and mathematics has become a favorite subject!  Our Science Fair piqued the investigative interest of many and we hope to have further developed inquiry skills.  We added Chess to our program and plan to host and participate in competitive events during the upcoming school year. 

Thank you for your confidence in our academic and non-academic activities throughout the year and for your support, demonstrated through your attending our regular monthly productions.  There is more to come and we look forward to expanding PPA’s offerings next year! 

Please keep books readily available for your child in order to sustain reading proficiency during the summer months.  Strong readers think clearer, have increased command of language, and writing happens more fluidly!  Next year will begin our “100+ Book Challenge” with a $100 prize for the winner.  Readers, get your engines started!

Enjoy your summer vacations or “stay-cations”!  Be safe and we look forward to seeing you in the Fall!


Mrs. K. Jones,
