Spring Is in the Air!
Thank you to our Upper Academy students for graciously donating their recess time to help plant flowers in our school garden! It brought some much needed color to our playground.
We will be hosting an information night for prospective families on Thursday, March 10 at 6:30 pm. This is a great opportunity for interested families to learn more about Placer Academy and get specific questions answered.
Mark your calendars for HRPA's first ever Math Night! On Thursday, March 31st, HRPA teachers invite parents and students to attend an exciting night of math filled activities.
