BUILDING OUR FUTURE:
Some of our students show off their Cross Country medals. This after-school enrichment opportunity has been well loved by our kiddos!
PTO will be selling Mandarins, Olive Oil and a few specialty items from Colwell Farms. This year rather than having order forms, items will be available all week! Our farmers market will be set up at the Primary Academy office, November 13 - 16, during conference week.
10 lb. bag of Mandarins for $15
Cash, check and credit cards accepted.

PTO Work Zone
The Placer Academy PTO is made of parent volunteers that work hard to make our little school a better place. They provide student and teacher resources, plan community events, and conduct fundraisers that support our school community.
The PTO website had a facelift. Check it out HERE.
Please join us at our next PTO meeting on Wednesday, December 5 at 3:15pm in the art room. Childcare will be provided.
Our first Box Top submission is being submitted this week. Keep the donations coming in for our second submission in March. Each box top earns the school 10 cents. It all adds up!
PTO needs hot lunch volunteers. If you can help, please email email@example.com.
