PAAAS - Principal's Corner

Dear Parents and Guardians:

As we close this academic year, I wanted to share some of my thoughts and impressions of the 2016-2017 school year.  We had much success in Walking the Talk and grew as a school community.  Our students shared in many wonderful experiences from competitions to performances. Students received recognition in the areas of academic excellent, leadership and citizenship.   Our 8th grade students won the Battle of the Books; every student exhibited a project during our Science Fair and the top three winners from each grade will be representing PAAAS at the District’s Science Fair. The school community will come together on June 8 and 9 at the production of PAAAS Takes Stage; hope to see you there!

The work that we completed this year was single mindedly focused on our students. It provided opportunities to increase the support and collaboration we have among our staff members. Our Professional Learning Communities (PLC’S) provide us with a framework to look at four essential questions of teaching and learning:

  • What do we want our students to know and be able to do?
  • How will we know if they’ve learned it?
  • What do we do if they haven’t learned it?
  • What do we do with students who have already mastered the skills?

Final Exam Schedule has been posted.  Please encourage your student to share the schedule with you.  If a student is exempt from a final, they do not have to come to school.  Our exams days are from June 6th to the 12th.  These are all half days.  The last day for students is June 19th. 

Please be sure to review our June calendar.  Many activities are occurring throughout the month.

I wish each of you a joy filled summer.  Please take time to rejuvenate yourselves; ensure that your student’s summer packet is completed upon their return.  Take a close look at our school calendar for important dates.
