Communications!! What we are doing at PAML?

October 22, 2013

Dear PAML Families,                                                                        

As we move forward in this 2013-2014 school year, we are continually working on ways to improve communication with our PAML community.   I would like to share with you the many ways in which you can expect to hear from the school and, also, ways in which you can be in touch with the school.

Quarterly:  You will receive a report card in the USPS mail.  In this mailing there may be additional information that comes home.

Monthly:  This year your student will receive a paper menu and a list of upcoming events

PAML Website:  Our PAML Calendar lists sports games as well as events, notice of vacation time, etc.  located at  I highly suggest you always start here to connect to the individual grade level websites as there may be whole school information located on this site.

This Blog: If you are reading this, you have already found it!  Sign in with your email to the right, and you'll receive update notices when the blog is updated!

Grade level websites have information about classes, homework and units of study.  They are useful and friendly to viewers.  Remember - always start from the PAML website as mentioned above.

Paper progress reports are handed to your student bi-weekly.  (Dates are listed in the PAML Student Handbook & Calendar you received at the start of school.)  Remember, you can access the PowerSchool Portal from our website at any time for academic and behavioral checks of how your student is doing.  If you do not have the user name and password for this, please be in touch with Linny Curtis at 888-1401.

Calling PAML:  Our hope is that, between the hours of 7:30am and 3:00pm, you will reach a live person and, often times, someone will answer until 4:00pm.   Should the line be busy during these hours, you may leave a voice mail message in the general mailbox, and your call will be addressed promptly or forwarded to the appropriate person. 

Thanks for all you do for the PAML community!
