Our new Marquee is here!
Have you noticed the wonderful new marquee outside our school? We will post important notices there in addition to the main gate and letters home.
Would you like to wish your child a happy birthday on the marquee? Please see the main office for this school fundraiser that will put a big smile on your child's face!
School Wide Positive Behavior Support
Please take time to read through our School Wide Positive Behavior Support plan. A copy was sent home and will be sent home again at the start of every school year. We adhere to the 6 Pillars of Character in the classroom and throughout the campus, and acknowledge students who exemplify those pillars at our monthly assemblies.
Parents, please encourage your children to follow the pillars of character and be model students. Being positive with your children will help them be successful throughout their lives!
YMCA P.L.A.Y. AT PASS!
We are very lucky to have YMCA's P.L.A.Y. (Physical Learning Activities for Youth) program with us at Primary Academy. Every Monday morning, all K-2nd students will receive guided physical education instruction for one hour. Parents, please make sure your child wears comfortable clothes and tennis shoes on Mondays. If there any health concerns, please notify your child's teacher. The PLAY program is funded with Student Body money.
IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDERS
Parents: Please be cautious when dropping off and picking up your children. There should be no double-parking on Willis Avenue, and no parking in the coned valet-zone along Nordhoff in the mornings. Please be sure to use all crosswalks, and be aware of moving vehicles. Our Campus Aides in vests will monitor the areas. It is for the safety of your children.
BREAKFAST IN CLASSROOM
Our school participates in the district "Breakfast in the Classroom" program. The program has been successful at other schools, and has improved attendance, increased academic performance, and increased student focus. Please help us support your children by making sure your child gets to school on time. Please take note of these new changes:
Lost and Found
Parents, please make sure to LABEL and write your child's name on the tags. Many jackets and sweaters get left on the playground. Any clothing left at the end of the school year will be donated to the Salvation Army.
