School is Underway!

We've had a great start to school this year at PAML.  We are enjoying getting to know our new 5th graders and do miss our last year 8th graders, but are settling in.  Yesterday we began the process of assigning lockers.  Students in 6th - 8th grade receive lockers, and it's always an exciting event.  Here's a few photos of the before, during and after locker distribution!

Locks ready to distribute

"Do I get a top or bottom locker?"
"Ahhh - got it open!!"

The finished locker - where do the books go?  On the shag carpeting, under the chandelier of course!
