PLA@George H. Fisher School 93
Greetings PLA Families,
This week our Golden Ticket winners were rewarded with a skating party and our 2nd-6th grade scholars were invited to spin the wheel in recognition of their hard work on their assessments.
For the safety of our staff and scholars, PLA@93 now has a check-in system at the front desk for any visitors that enter the building. If you arrive at school for a meeting with any staff member and enter beyond the front desk, you will be required to present a valid ID prior to entry. Please be aware that you may be asked to return to your car to retrieve your ID or possibly reschedule your appointment if one cannot be furnished at the time of your arrival.
We will be hosting a fun after school activity for scholars next week on Thursday, February 16th. More information can be found below.
This week's community resource is LIHEAP. More information can be found below.
Our 6th grade scholars will visit with our staff from JRPLA next week. They will be presenting to them some of the opportunities that they will have if the attend JRPLA next year.
We have updated our Facebook page! Below you can find a QR code that can be scanned in order to follow us. Instagram and Twitter information has been provided as well.
