P.A.S.C. has been working hard to present this year’s musical Anastasia. Anastasia is based on the last surviving child of the Russian Royal Family and her adventure to reunite with her grandmother while trying to avoid the undead Rasputin. We are looking forward to another amazing performance by our students.

Parent Advisory Council Meeting: Let’s Get Talking
Do you want to help make Peoples Academy Great? Is your child happy at school? Is your child challenged in their classes? Does your student feel safe and welcome at PA? Do you have other ideas you want to discuss with other parents and school staff? Join us while we explore questions, like:
- What do you believe are the most pressing challenges or needs in our school community that we, as parents, can address?
- How can we best support the academic and extracurricular goals of our high school students?
- What ideas do you have for promoting a culture of inclusivity and diversity within our school community?
Join the conversation: RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
