Hello PMA Families!!

Welcome back and welcome new families!!

You will be receiving a lot of information on the first week of school, including a Fun Fest Information Booklet. Please read its content and if you have any questions please email me at PARENTGROUP@PMASCHOOL.ORG

On Monday August 31 during the Meet and Greet Open House, the Parent Group will have collecting carts in the car line area. The carts will be marked and you can drop off donations for the following items:
1. Penny Sale (anything and everything that is new)
2. Classroom Theme basket items.
3. Soda and Juice pouches/boxes.
4. Items for our FISH POND BAGS (anything and everything …truly)

You can find a complete list of the items we need on the website by going to the PARENT PORTAL, look for Parent Group, scroll down under FUN FEST, look for End of Summer Needs (PDF).

The Fun Fest will be upon us in less than three weeks. The success of this event depends on your donations and volunteerism. Volunteers for this EVENT ONLY do not need to go through the required PMA Volunteer Training Program! We simply do not have enough time for the training between the start of the school year and the event.

For families new to our school community, the Parent Group raises funds to help defray the cost of field trips, support enrichment programs for the students (special shows, educational entertainment) and numerous other activities and materials that benefit the school and children. We need your help to make these “dreams” possible for all of our children.

Over the years, the Parent Group have donated thousands of dollars to make the following possible:
designing, building and paying for half of the playground, the new water bubbler in front of the gym, new basket ball backboards for the playground, a laminator, sound panels in the cafe, the intercom system, playground toys for the students, a Gator, new picnic tables and tents and many other wonderful things!

Be sure to check your White Shuttle Envelope every week for more information about FUN FEST!
Again, ANY questions on anything, please email PARENTGROUP@pmaschool.org

Thank you all for your support and wishing everyone a happy healthy school new year!
