Dear Lower School Parents and Guardians,

We hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend!

Here are the weekly updates:

Charlie David Dinner
This year’s Charlie David Dinner, the cornerstone of financial support for ALL CA athletic programs,is virtual. Which means the 800+ CA middle and upper school athletes need our support more than ever! Although you may not have a middle or upper school athlete yet, there are still ways you can support the CA athletic program if you’re interested.
For detailed Charlie David Dinner information and to register to purchase sponsorships/meals/silent auction items, visit: https://pacaevents.wedoauctions.com.
Be sure to order your City Barbeque meals by September 28th and mark your calendar for Friday, October 2nd to pick up your meals and to start bidding on silent auction items.
The CA athletes thank you for your support! Questions or silent auction donations can be sent to charliedavid.paca.

Teacher Appreciation
We are so fortunate for our wonderful teachers! To show our appreciation, PACA will be dropping off a bagel breakfast for the faculty this coming Friday, September 25th. If your kiddos would like to bring in a homemade thank you note this week, we know they would greatly appreciate it! Whether it is for their homeroom teacher or one of their specials teachers, the small signs of gratitude go a long way in brightening their days!
