Now here we are, an eyeblink later, informing you of all of the upcoming events for the new school year. There is a lot to remember in the coming week, and we hope our newsletter can help you keep it all organized. (You can also take a look at the “upcoming events” section of our website, where these dates are listed.)

  • TONIGHT (August 21) be sure to order a sub from Jersey Mike’s Subson Fire Tower Road to support PPS-PC!

  • August 27th -The day we’ve all been waiting for, either with anticipation, trepidation, or a little bit of both: the first day of school for students in grades 1-12.
  • August 27th – rising Kindergarten students with last names beginning with A-L begin school.
  • August 28 – rising Kindergarten students with last names M-Z begin school.

Remember that there are many ways for parents to engage with their child’s education, not only at school but at home as well. Your support, in whatever form fits your family best, will be a positive factor in your child’s success this year! Don’t hesitate to call on PPS if we can help:
