PTAA ROCKET REVIEW
August 9, 2023
Note from Principal Houston
We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to you and your child as we embark on an exciting journey together at PTAA. We are delighted to have you as part of our educational community, and we are committed to providing an enriching and inspiring learning environment for your child.
At PTAA, we believe in the power of STEAM education to ignite curiosity, foster critical thinking, and cultivate a love for learning. By integrating science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics into our curriculum, we aim to prepare our students for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Our dedicated team of educators is passionate about creating hands-on, inquiry-based learning experiences that encourage creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.
In our STEAM-focused classrooms, your child will have the opportunity to explore and engage with a wide range of subjects. From conducting scientific experiments and designing engineering projects to exploring the world of coding and unleashing their artistic talents, we strive to provide a well-rounded education that nurtures the whole child. We believe that by fostering a love for learning and encouraging interdisciplinary connections, we can help our students develop the skills and mindset necessary for future success.
Beyond the classroom, our school community is a vibrant and supportive one. We value the partnership between home and school and recognize the importance of open communication. We encourage your active involvement in your child's education and invite you to participate in school events, parent-teacher conferences, and volunteer opportunities. Together, we can create a nurturing and inclusive environment where every student can thrive.
As we embark on this educational journey together, we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. We look forward to getting to know your child and watching them grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Our dedicated staff is here to support your child's individual needs and celebrate their achievements every step of the way.
Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. We are honored to have the opportunity to guide and inspire them on their path to success. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Once again, welcome to our PTAA where we will Climb Higher and REACH for the Peak in 23-24!
