Good evening Mariner Families,

This is Ms. Doty with your Wednesday night Top 5  things to know about upcoming school events.

1) Thanks to the many families who contributed, the PTA raised $3540 with the No Fuss Fundraiser! Because we exceeded our goal, all students and staff will be treated to ice cream and extra recess.  Virtual Academy students will be treated, too, so watch for more details soon.  We will continue accepting donations here through the week if you missed your chance and still want to support the school.  Every contribution counts!  

2)  Congratulations to Ms. Lori Kleberg who was nominated as our Instructional Assistant of the year and also to Ms.Elizabeth Peele, who was nominated as our Bus Driver of the year. These two mariners play an integral role in making sure our students are safe and successful every day. Thank you, ladies, for your service. 

3)Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up next week, May 3-7.  The PTA has several meals and treats planned, but special words and gestures from individual students and families can go a long way towards boosting the spirits of our dedicated staff.  You can get some ideas on the staff favorite things list here.

4)  Make plans to join us for our next PTA meeting on Thursday, May 6th at 7:30pm via zoom.  We will get our end of year updates from Mrs. Doty, review what we were able to accomplish this year, and discuss what the PTA may look like for the next school year.  Register here to receive the zoom link.  The PTA is also seeking board and committee members for the 2021/2022 school year.  Your ideas and help can make a big difference.  Contact president@phspta.org with questions or interest.   

5)  Slots remain for the Spring Photo Fundraiser this weekend, May 1-2.  If you need to have family or sibling photos taken, you can support the school while doing so!  Sign up for a time slot here, and the $20 sitting fee will go to the PTA.
