There is still time to buy or donate books at our annual Packer PA Book Fair!
The new DisPAtch is your one stop for all PA news and events, replacing the monthly emails you have received from Class and Grade Reps in the past.
PA News & Announcements
This is our last DisPAtch of the 2020-21 school year, so before we go our separate ways for the summer, we want to say thank you.
Thank you to the Packer faculty and staff, who have been our heroes all year (and scroll down to check out how Packer students thanked them in this issue).
Thank you to all the PA leaders and volunteers, who have helped us stay connected and engaged as a parent community.
Thank you to our kids. We are always in awe of your capacity to shine — and never more than this year.
And thanks to all of you, for everything you do to support the PA and make our school community stronger, warmer, and more inclusive.
This is a short month, but we have some fun things planned, so please remember to click on the headlines below for more information. As always, please feel free to reach out to us (yes, even over the summer) with any questions, concerns, or ideas.
Now, as the kids would sing, hallelujah for vacation! See you in September, if not sooner.
