PAAAS - Principal's Corner

Dear PAAAS Community:

As the semester draws to a close, it is good to reflect on your student’s progress thus far at PAAAS. You will receive your student’s Report Card shortly; they are scheduled to be mailed on Friday, February 3, 2017. It is equally important for you to reflect on how your student has progressed in terms of their social growth, behavior and involvement in non-academic activities; our clubs. Children need our encouragement. So even if their achievements might not have met the goals you had established, praise whatever efforts they have made.

Please be advised that any student that might need support in any academic area, faculty is available on a daily basis.  Their support hours are posted in their respective classrooms.  We also offer Saturday Institute for academic support from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm., and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:00 with transportation available at 5:00 pm. Students are assigned to the Institute by teacher recommendation; if you wish your student to attend, please contact their respective teacher.

We are in the process of planning a few major events that will take place in the next upcoming months and are asking for your help.  Auditions for our Spring Production will be taking place shortly.  We need many volunteers to be able to put the production together.  If you wish to volunteer please contact Mr. Othell Miller at ojMiller@plainfield.k12.nj.us.   Our Black History Month Celebration will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  All families and the community are invited.  We have a great evening planned and hope to see you there.  Parent teacher conferences will be held on February 14, 15 and 16 from 12:50 to 3:10 and on Thursday, February 16 from 6:30 to 8:30.

The school is trying to enhance communication with Parents and Guardians.  We need your support for this effort to be successful.  Please ask your student for the paperwork that goes home periodically.  Pertinent information is provided, and it is imperative that you read all documents, sign them if necessary, and return them.  This will ensure that you are aware of what is happening at PAAAS.  Also check our school website for pertinent information as well as mark your calendars for special events coming up.  Please discuss with your student the dangers of social media such as inappropriate text messaging, group chats, pictures, and comments.  We will be having a parent workshop in March on this very important topic.

With warm regards,

Dr. Angela Bento Mrs. Aurora J. Hill
