Upcoming Events to Begin the Year

Welcome Back

Hello PPSEL Families,

I hope that all of you have been enjoying the warm weather.
I wanted to put a couple of important things on your calendar.
Meet Your Teacher Night 
This event is August 3rd and is an Open House format from 5:30-7.  Families will learn classroom/teacher assignments, hear from the teacher regarding classroom procedures, and parents can also bring in their school supplies, if they choose. (School Supply lists can be found on our website.)
 In addition to getting classroom information, there will tables with information on specific topics.
Some of the tables will include:
  • Boy Scouts
  • Girl Scouts
  • PPSEL Elective Teachers
  • PPSEL Nursing
  • Expeditionary Kids Before and After School Program
  • School Administrators
Parking! Parking will be at a premium for this event. It is not necessary to come right at 5:30 as this is an Open House format. Please be courteous to our neighbors. Do not block driveways or use driveways to turn around in. The field on the west side of our property will be open for auxiliary parking—just follow the colored flags up.
New Family Orientation
This is August 3rd at 4:00 and is online.  This will be a chance for new families to meet leadership and learn about important processes at PPSEL.  This will be a virtual event.  We have previously had this happen at Meet Your Teacher Night, but it was overwhelming for new families, so we will spend an hour or less virtually this year so families can focus solely on their child’s classroom(s) and teacher(s) at Meet Your Teacher Night. School leadership will also have a space at Meet Your Teacher night as well for specific questions. We don’t want to post the Zoom link publicly, so if you didn’t receive it in an email, reach out to don.knapp@ppsel.org

Used Uniform Swap and Sale
The PTO will be running a sale/swap of uniforms at Meet Your Teacher Night.  Come to purchase used uniform shirts.  You can also swap gently used shirts for another size.  Number of items may be limited in sizes where they have limited numbers.
First day of School is August 7th. Remember that our calendar can be downloaded from our website.
I look forward to the new year! I can’t wait to see all of you.
