Mike and I hope that you had a great Halloween and are enjoying the beautiful weather this weekend! With the start of November, we enter into the Fall in earnest with Thanksgiving highlighting the month. With this in mind, we invite you to attend the upcoming PACA Forum on November 7. The focus of the Forum this month primarily is on Thanks and Giving.
Speaking of giving, Columbus Academy incorporates Service into all levels of the school as our children grow and learn to be engaged in the wider community. This Wednesday, Christy Bening, Service Department Chair, will present how Service works into the activities our children participate in from 3YO Exploration through Senior year.
As parents and guardians, PACA helps support Service by coordinating the Kids-4-Kids Clothing Drive and Food Drive, and a coat drive in the Spring. If you have already donated, thank you so much! If you have not, this long weekend is the perfect time to rummage through your closets to find much-needed gently used clothing or to purchase non-perishable food items for families in need.There are also still opportunities to directly assist 32 families through the fill-a-wish program.
So, please consider dropping off donations through November 9 and attending the next PACA Forum in the Dining Hall on Wednesday after drop-off in the morning (see below for the full agenda).
