Panda Pulse

September 11, 2020

Welcome Back from the PTA

2020 will be a school year like no other with lots of new challenges for our students, teachers, administrators and us parents/guardians. The Penny Road PTA is getting ready to assist our school within the new learning environment we find ourselves this fall. This year communication between the school and families will be more frequent than before and, of course, all electronic. With that in mind the PTA will be limiting how often we send out the Panda Pulse Newsletter. We will be sending a newsletter when we have important information to share. So if you don’t see a post for a few weeks don’t worry, and if we do send one please have a look.
Game on, Panda Strong
