Curriculum Night

Thank you very much to those who were able to attend our Curriculum Night today. It means a lot to me as a teacher to see the evidence of our partnership both at school and at home in the education of your child. For those who were unable to attend, please do not worry. I understand that other commitments can get in the way (I myself was unable to attend the curriculum presentations in my daughters’ classrooms).

For your convenience, I am attaching the presentation as a PDF file.

Boxes of Hope – Due on December 2nd

Dear Parents,

PSA is happy to take part in this great organization, Box of Hope, that will get our kids involved in a great cause!

Box of Hope is an annual charity project aimed at providing useful and educational gifts to underprivileged children in Asia.

It is very simple and will give joy to many children who have never received a gift.

To participate in this wonderful project, follow these 3 steps:

1.Pick up an empty NEW shoe box from school. We will have them at Mountainside, Parkside, and Bayside entrance on Tuesday – Friday,  November 21-24.

2. Pick up a sticker (from the same place) with the age and gender you choose to fill the box for. Place the sticker on the top of your finished packed wrapped box.

3. Return the completed box to school at the Winter Bazaar on December 2nd. If you cannot return the box on this day, please bring it to school on December 4th and 5th.

Follow these easy steps and together we can make many children happy!

Thank you very much ,
