PAAAS - Principal's Corner

Dear Parents and Guardians,

While the weather insists on reminding us that it is still winter, the calendar tells us that spring is here! 

In our continued commitment of ensuring the success of ALL students, we will continue with our student intervention structure that had been outlined at a fall PTO informational meeting relative to the following:

• Academic interventions
• Saturday Institute

Please encourage your student to work in preparation for their continuous academic careers.  Many students are coming to school not prepared, they are not completing homework, projects, research papers and are not adhering to time lines.  Completing tasks on time is a must in any career or job setting.  Also the importance of getting to school on time.  The same students are late every day.  Please realize that some will not have the state mandated seat time to earn the credit for the course.  

Parents and family members, please stay in touch with the school on a regular basis. Contact teachers, join the PTO; our next meeting is April 20, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. and be active participants in our community and in the lives of our students.
