Friday, October 30

6:30pm to 8:00pm

PMA cafeteria and the grounds of PMA

This is a fun family event that you can bring family and friends to enjoy.  We ask that EVERY family carve a pumpkin and drop off at school on the morning of Friday, October 30, during morning car line or in the afternoon.  Please also bring a treat to share. Water, hot and cold cider and hot chocolate will be provided.

The pumpkins will be displayed in the front avenue for your viewing pleasure.  We ask that you arrive at 6:30pm there will be a pathway to lead you to the front avenue where you can view all the lighted  pumpkins.  You can then meet in the cafeteria for drinks and light refreshments.  This is a free and enjoyable event for all.

Please try to only carve (1) one side of your pumpkin so the wind does not blow out the candle. Bring a flashlight to help guide your way.

We will supply candles for all pumpkins

Please mark your pumpkin with masking tape and your family name.

Please pick up your pumpkin Friday night when you leave or over the weekend as they will be disposed of Monday morning.

10.7.2015 November Lunch Orders

November lunch orders MUST be submitted into the system NO LATER than Friday, October 23.
If you have questions regarding how to submit your order please email Kim Flint at

Ordering Procedure

Ordering is done on a monthly basis. Each month, an email will be sent with the link and the next months due date. The online system can be found in the Parent Portal at

Step 1: Enter the students name, Class Code and House(for Junior High students only), and payment method. If you have more than one student please pay special attention to Class Code/House and order accuracy. Switching an order from one sibling to another is not easily done with our system.
Step 2: Using the drop down menus enter the order. Use the “Add” button to enter additional items. Review your order before clicking submit.
Step 3: Click “Submit”. This will take you to a confirmation page.
Step 4: Once again, review the order for accuracy.
Step 5: Print the order and send in with your payment. If you have printing difficulties please send in your payment clearly labeled with the students name, class code and “Main Office-lunch payment”.

If you notice an error after clicking “submit”, you may re-enter the order. However, the ENTIRE order must be re-entered. You CANNOT add to your original order. If you choose to adjust your order, please start again from Step 1. It is very important that you enter the student’s name EXACTLY the same. Otherwise, the student will have more than one order in the system. To avoid having to re-enter the order please carefully review before clicking “Submit”.

It is very important to adhere to each months due date. The final week of each month is needed to prepare the proper reports for each classroom. Late orders create a lot of confusion for everyone. Additionally, all lunch orders must be submitted through the online system. Please do not plan on sending money to purchase on a daily basis. If any unforeseen circumstances arise (such as a missing lunchbox) the school will provide lunch for that child and an IOU will be sent home.

Thank you.

10.7.2015 Ski Club for Grades 1-8

Ski Club registration is OPEN! Attached you will find all of the information about when and how to sign up for Ski Club. This year we will be collecting the bus fee at the time of registration. Once you have registered and paid online for the program through Pats Peak, you will need to send in an additional payment for the bus fee to PMA. The bus fee this year will be $100 for each participant. Please make checks payable to PMA and send in to the school office marked “Ski Club”.

We only charter one bus, so when all seats are full, we cannot take any additional students. We have had a wait list the past two years.

The attached permission and medical forms should be sent in to the school office once you have registered your child.
