Annual Fund – Grateful for Academy

Everyone is going to great lengths to creatively conduct school this year. One of the most important ways parents can help support these efforts is by giving to the 2020-21 Annual Fund before Dec. 31. Our gifts provide the school the flexibility to adapt continuously as it cares for our students’ education, health and wellbeing. The spirit of this fall’s campaign is gratitude, which you can see through this video featuring Lower School family Amy, Antonio and Alejandra Gonzalez (5th grade). We hope you will click here with a grateful spirit and join in with your donation online.

PACA Parent Forum: Friday, January 15, 2021, 8:30 a.m. via Zoom webinar

Save the date and join us as Division Heads Mark Hansen, Shaka Arnold, and Cory Izokaitis, along with Athletic Director Jason Singleton and parent affinity groups, provide mid-year updates. Further details and Zoom login will be sent after Winter Break, but put this on your calendars!

Thank you for making Sweet Celebration a success!

Thank you for your contributions to provide special homemade cookies for all our faculty and staff. Special thanks to our Teacher Appreciation Committee (Amanda Lee, Mary Smith, Christine Baker, and Julie Wood) for assembling all the boxes for each faculty and staff member.

Have a fantastic break, and we wish you a happy and healthy start to the new year!
