A note from Mrs. Fadeji

11 days left in the school year, Penngrove families! Can you believe it?! And boy are they packed! Thank you all for your active participation in the crazy fun month of May! Don't forget about Field Day - this is an all hands on deck kind of day.

Finally, I am excited to share a document with you in response to the feedback we received on our parent survey in February. The information shared on this document was compiled in a collaborative effort between Site Council, Staff, and PTA. We hope you find it useful and informative!

Hang on for dear life, we're in the final stretch!
