Good Afternoon Pueblo Academy of Arts Families,

This is Mr. Farias with the weekly update.

The PTO Meeting that was scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 12th, is being postponed due to some scheduling conflicts and will be rescheduled for a date and time to be determined in January 2020. 

We would also like our families to know that we are supporting the Pueblo Police Department by accepting new, unwrapped toys in our main office to donate to the Toys for Tots program. While communication of this program is just occurring, we are currently without any toys in our donation box. We hope you will help us fill our donation box over the next two weeks with plenty of toys that will go to children in need.

On Monday, Boys Basketball will play away at Heaton Middle School beginning at 4:45 p.m. 

On Tuesday, students that participate in the My Life program will participate in a field trip to Colorado State University-Pueblo. Students will be bussed to and from CSU-P from PAA. Also on Tuesday, our NAL team competes against Corwin International.  The competition begins at 4:45 at Central High School. 

On Wednesday, we host our Boys Basketball game in the PAA gymnasium. The Boys Basketball team will take on Skyview Middle School at 4:45 PM. Student Council encourages all students to get into school spirit by participating in a Phoenix Pride theme in the student section. Students are encouraged to wear their favorite PAA swag to the basketball game. Entry is $2 for students and $4 for adults. 

Student Council will also meet as a club from 4:30 to 5:30 PM to continue planning events for the school on Wednesday. 

During school on Thursday, those students that qualified to participate in the PAA Spelling Bee will do so in the morning. This closed competition will be completed to see who will earn the honor of representing Pueblo Academy of Arts at the District 60 Spelling Bee later this school year. Also, on Thursday evening, MathCounts will meet for practice from 4:30 to 5:30. 

Lastly, we would like to encourage all Phoenix families to purchase their yearbooks before Winter Break. Yearbooks are currently on sale in the main office or online using the link found on our school website. Yearbooks are currently $20, but they will increase to $25 after Winter Break. 

We also encourage all families to check Parent Portal to make sure that all parent contact information is up to date. This is in preparation for a new communication program, called Blackboard, that we will begin using after Winter Break. If your family would like to have these weekly callers, as well as other large scale communications, provided in another language, such as Spanish, please contact our main office and let us know.

Please be sure to contact our main office if you have any questions. Also, check out our school webpage and social media for information and updates.  As always, I appreciate your time and attention. Have a great evening.
