Upcoming events and dates



Hello Upper School Families,

Highlighted in yellow are several quick updates that we were informed about this past week. Please take note and add to your calendar. Dates that are not highlighted have been sent out the previous weeks.

Volunteering for 2023-2024
Please consider volunteering next year. PACA is always looking for new volunteers and it’s a wonderful way to be informed, get to know the faculty and staff, meet new parents, share ideas, and most importantly be involved at your kids school. It’s a fun and easy way to stay connected.
The nomination process for positions for the 2023-24 school year is open. Use pacapresidents.
