PACE / PTA BIG REVEAL

Did you miss it?!?  We had a big reveal at our PTA/PACE meeting recently!!!   Here’s the news:

Thanks to the tireless fundraising efforts of our amazing parent volunteers, and thanks to the generous donations from all of YOU, PACE is thrilled to announce in addition to our investments into new Ipad and Chromebook carts for the classrooms this year, we have agreed to fund a FULL COMPUTER LAB RERESH!  Over the summer break, 40 new computers will be installed ready for the new 2018/19 school year!  This is not a inexpensive investment, but a very important one that supports our school’s charter promises and offers all of our children the very best technology at their fingertips!

Secondly, in support of our well-loved Read-a-thon, PACE has agreed to MATCH ALL FUNDS raised this year in sponsorships, in order to give our beloved library A FULL RENOVATION!  We are talking new blinds, paint, decorations, new sections of books, new research computers with subscriptions for National Geographic etc…. the list of possibilities are endless, so lets gather those sponsorships from friends and neighbors to make this refresh sensational!!!

Our next PTA/PACE meeting is April 12, and we will be holding the elections for new Board Members!  If you would like to run, or nominate someone, PLEASE COMPLETE THIS FORM and submit it to the PTA/PACE box in the front office asap.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!
