Info & Reminders

*If you order lunch for your student on a month to month basis please keep in mind that November 1 is next Wednesday!  Ordering for next week will shut down at midnight tonight.

*This Friday is a $2.00 dress down day.  The $2 dress down days are different than the Fun Fest Dress Down passes. If you prepaid for the $2 dress down days your child’s teacher will have their name on a list. If you did not prepay please send your $2 contribution in on Friday. Students are invited to dress in the “Down on the Farm” theme on Friday.
*PMA’s Annual Pumpkin Stroll is this Friday night from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm. Please drop off your carved pumpkin (one side only please) and treats to share in car line on Friday.
*Next Tuesday, 10/31, is the last day for the “warm” weather uniform.  If you have questions about the PMA uniform please click on the below link for the PMA Handbook.
*Please remember to contact the school office if your child will be out sick or tardy.  Please either leave a message at 603-889-6054 Opt. 1, then Opt. 2 or email
*The office has recently had many “forgotten” items dropped off during the school day.  We have also had many phone calls with the purpose of “reminding” students of things.  In order for us to help instill a sense of responsibility in your child we respectfully ask that parents refrain from this. We ask that you help prepare your child prior to arriving at school each morning.  This includes whether they are going to car line or the after school program. If they are in the younger grades a note to the teacher (instead of an email to the main office) would be appropriate. The office only needs to be aware of last minute changes.
As always, please contact the office if you have any questions at
