Dear parents,

We, in the PAC, are trying to do whatever we can to help the school and our children. There are several ways we can communicate information to you, and wanted to update you about these ways. Each class has a PAC contact and through him/her we can send you email updates about what’s happening at the school. If you wish to join the mailing list, please contact your PAC representative (Class Parents). We understand if you do not wish to join the mailing list, and we encourage you to visit our website and the school’s website to see updates, news and schedule.

Thank you
