Take Your Child to Work Day is 4/27/23. Please review the following attendance information from the elementary student handbook.
If a student is on mandatory doctor excuse status prior to Take Your Child to Work Day, then this day will not be an excused absence.
If a student brings a written note requesting prior approval for absence on this day because he or she will be going to spend the day with a parent in the workplace, the day will be counted as a regular school day and not as an absence.
If a student takes part in Take Your Child to Work Day, but does not bring in a note until after the date of the event, the student will be marked as having an unexcused absence on that day.

PBIS and Bucket Filling
Our kindergarten classes have spoken and set our next bucket bucks goal at 10,000 bucket bucks! Once we reach that goal, all classes will work to complete a spring craft to decorate the school!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT from the PLES & AGIS PTA Officers, please read on:
We are excited to share that we are formally proposing a new, combined entity, PTA organizational model, e.g. that both PLES and AGIS will be supported by 1 strategically aligned PTA. Over the past few years, we have been evaluating the effectiveness of our operating model against our current environment, particularly in consideration of the upcoming grade level transitions for grades 2 and 6. With PLES transitioning to Kindergarten and 1st grade, and 2nd grade moving into AGIS, we felt compelled to design a model that is sustainable long-term across both schools, that simultaneously encourages consistency and stronger growth within our organization.
Please see the attachment for additional information, including important dates and an FAQ!
Back by popular demand, we have partnered again with 1st Day School Supplies to provide a quick and easy way to get all required school supplies for the next school year! It is a super convenient way to get all the top and trusted branded school supplies without needing to shop around in the summer. The supplies are shipped to your home prior to the start of school and a portion of the sales is returned to the Penn London PTA to help fund programs for our students!
This service is also available to students attending Avon Grove Intermediate School in the fall! Follow the link below to order.
