Mr. Maynard had us captured in a team-building activity one day this week.  Everyone loves a parachute!

We all have been hard at work getting ready for the return of the students.  We have had a focus this week on our Mission Related Goals, the School-wide PBIS practices, and the upcoming Student Portfolios that will be introduced this year.  There are a lot of exciting plans being made PAML and Monday can't come soon enough!

Getting Ready

We are busy getting ready for the return of the students for the 2014-15 school year.  It's an exciting feeling as the building is prepared, teachers are in and out of their classrooms, and the calendar days seem to fly by.  The back to school mailing will be sent out  early next week.  Please book Monday, Aug. 11th on your calendar for the Sport Night for Fall Sports. We offer Soccer for grades 6, 7 and 8, as well as Cross Country for all Middle Level grades. This will be at 6:00 PM in the auditorium.  Another date to add to your calendar is our Open House on Wednesday, Sept. 24th at 6:00 PM. 

New Faces: This year we welcome Amelia Burns (7th grade Math), Joseph McLaughlin (Guidance), Casie Grossman (World Languages, World Cultures), Kim Beckley (Vocal Music), Susan Trombley (School Nurse), Lauri Thomas (receptionist), Chris Player (School-Based Clinician), Jennifer Clark (7-12 math Interventionist) and Lauren Griffin (para-educator). Introduce yourself if you see any one of these new folks.  We know they will be happy they have joined the PAML community of learners.

Enjoy these last weeks of summertime with your kids! We can't wait to see them again (and meet the new ones), but wish your family all the best as we continue with our preparations!
