Good Afternoon Pueblo Academy of Arts Families,

This is Mr. Farias with the weekly update. In an effort to keep you informed, I want to encourage you to like and follow our Facebook page. Not only will you get a glimpse of all the positive things we are doing at our school, but you will also find important updates concerning the safety of your student in the event our school ever has an emergency that requires your attention. Social media is one of the tools we will use to keep you informed, so please be sure to find our page and like it. You can also follow our other social media posts on Twitter, Instagram, and You Tube.

Phone calls like this one will also be used and it is very important to make sure you keep your contact information updated with our school. In other words, if you get a new phone number, informing us of this change is the only way to ensure you receive future calls.

On Tuesday, we will host our first PTO meeting of the year. It will be from 5:30 to 6:30 in the PAA Learning Commons. Please join us if you’d like to learn about how to become more involved at Pueblo Academy of Arts. We are hoping to establish a parent group this year that will support the school through planning, feedback, fundraising, and community involvement to support and improve the school for our students.

On Tuesday, October 29th, WEB Leaders will be meeting right after school in the Learning Commons.  We would like each Web Leader to donate a bag of candy. The candy will be used to make Halloween-o-grams.

This week we will also have some Halloween activities occurring within the school. WEB Leaders are sponsoring a Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Students will need to bring in their own carved or decorated pumpkin to the school on the 30th with their $1 entry fee. Students will be awarded prizes in three categories including spookiest, most creative and most humorous pumpkin. The winners of the Pumpkin Decorating Contest will be announced at our first Town Hall which is scheduled for October 31st. 

Also on Thursday, October 31st, students will be allowed to wear a Halloween themed shirt to school to celebrate the holiday. There will be no fee for students to wear this Halloween themed shirt. However, this is not a jeans day, so students will be required to wear their uniform bottoms to school this day. Students that do not follow dress code expectations on this day will be required to call home for proper attire. Also, please note that Halloween costumes are not allowed at school, nor are Halloween props or candy. Only Halloween themed shirts will be allowed to be worn during school on October 31st. 

Please be sure to call our main office if you have any questions. As always, I appreciate your time and attention. Have a great evening.
