Greetings PLA Families,

Happy Friday! We are counting down the days to summer! Many classrooms have fun activities planned next week. We will be off on Monday in observance of Memorial Day. When we return on Tuesday, scholars will participate in Field Day! We are looking forward to a fun day with our scholars.
