PTAA ROCKET REVIEW
November 1, 2022
Note from the Principal
Greetings PTAA Families,
Happy November, the Month of being more mindful of what we are thankful for. I am very thankful for our PTAA Team, including our wonderful teachers and staff. It is a blessing to have teachers who see their profession as a calling and give to all our students their best. We are all thankful for our students and we are thankful for our families!
We are still having reporting of unsafe driving on Dublin and Peterson. We have had some families report drivers are not watching as they approach crosswalks. Students are crossing at Dublin from the Firestation parking lot and some drivers are not watching as carefully as they should for these children crossing. Please also be kind and patient when in the driveline. Driveline has been consistently completing by 3:45/3:50 and this is great leaps and bounds from beginning of school. Driveline is a part of all schools. Please air on the side of caution and use extreme care while driving on and around the school.
Have a great week.. we are, at PTAA!
