- At our Back to School Night we will have a section with tables to guide Parents through important items such as how to sign up for our Aeries Parent Portal to check up on grades, etc.; how to sign up for our Remind Text Notifications; how to navigate our PMA website; how to view all of our PMA Social Media Platforms, etc.
- Our 7th & 8th Graders are eligible to try out for Sequoia MS sports. Their Cross Country Team has started and are looking for our Cadets to join. We have a bus that takes PMA Cadets right after school to Sequoia MS. The only thing is that Parents will need to pick up their Cadets at 5 p.m.
- Our 9th Graders are eligible to try out for Strathmore HS sports. They are currently looking for more Male Water Polo players.
- We will be distributing Chromebooks within the next two weeks to all of our Cadets. PMA's plan is to be a 1:1 school in which every Cadet will have a Chromebook device that they can use in class and take home. Please ensure that you have signed our Internet User Agreement form. More details coming soon!
