Weekly eNews: November 8, 2018

Dear FIRSTNAME,

 

Next week, ahead of the Thanksgiving break, our pre-K through 8th grade students will participate in Community Service Day. Our pre-K to 4th grade students will stay on campus and complete myriad projects for people in our community, and our middle school students will venture out around Tampa Bay. I'm so glad this day falls close to Thanksgiving this year so our younger students will be reminded of the blessings we all share.

 

In that spirit, I'd like to remind our Elementary families that there are two days remaining to contribute donations for Community Service Day. A complete list of requested items is available here. I also know the committee is short on pancake mix, syrup, macaroni and cheese, pasta and pasta sauce if you are compelled to bring extra. Members of the Community Service Day committee will be at drop off on Friday, November 9, and Monday, November 12, to collect donations. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Art Raimo
President

The Academy is Gaining Momentum

Creative activities are the foundation of a student's development. Learning to create and appreciate the arts may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation. Development benefits include motor skills, language development, decision making, visual learning, inventiveness, problem solving and cultural awareness. It builds confidence and enables all students to have an artistic voice. Studies also show that there is a correlation between artistic development and academic achievement. Please consider supporting the PAF today at a level most comfortable for your family. No matter the size, your gift is an investment in our students, and for that we are grateful.
