PAAAS - Principal's Corner

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope that the start of the second semester is off to a great beginning for all of you.  Special congratulations to all of our students who made the Honor Roll and the High Honor Roll.  An Honor Roll assembly will be held on March 1, 2017 to celebrate all students who achieved this honor and to distributed certificates.
In March, we will continue to implement effective instructional programs as we are preparing for our spring State Level Assessment, PARCC grades 7 – 11, NJ-ASK Science 8 and the Biology Exam. We strive to provide interventions and enrichment on the necessary skills in order to give our students the best learning opportunities that will prepare them to test successfully.  Saturday Institute is also available for those who may benefit from the extra assistance. 
The month of March will be a very busy month at PAAAS.  Our students will be participating in the County Teen Arts festival on March 16 (9th – 12th grade) and 17 (7th & 8th grade) at Union County College, Cranford campus. 
Auditions for prospective students will be scheduled for the week of May 8th due to the PARCC assessments occurring throughout the month of April.  Please note that there will be no late arrivals for seniors or any other class due to testing.  School hours will remain the same during testing.  Everyone is required to be present and on time.
Please remember that PAAAS is a uniform school.  The specifications of the uniform are not only listed in the student and parent handbooks they were also mailed over the summer to your homes.  There are absolutely no string pants allowed as part of the uniform.  As a gentle reminder, at PAAAS, we wear khaki pants with a blue or hunter green polo and shoes not sneakers.  Demerits will continue to be given when students are not in compliance resulting in Saturday Institutes and possible loss of priviladges such as trips, performances and special events.
If we can answer any questions or if you have any comments regarding PAAAS, please feel free to call or stop in the office to visit.
