BEAUTIFULLY MADE ART AUCTION:
This year’s art auction looks a little different. On May 21st we will be bringing you a FB Live preview of all our collaborative art pieces this year. Then on Friday, May 22nd, you will be able to bid on your favorite class pieces via Bidding Owl. All monies fund our VAPA program here at Placer Academy Charter. We hope that you will join us and share the fun with family and friends. We look forward to this new, albeit different, event!!
Your PAC teachers and staff will be on parade! On Friday, May 22nd we will start a loop around Rocklin visiting 3 parks to wave, honk, and shout hello! We will begin at Upper Academy at 3:00 pm. Our first stop will be Wesley Park. Our second stop will be Whitney Ranch Park. Our last park stop will be Twin Oaks Park with our final return to Primary Academy.
We invite you and your families to come on out and wave and shout hello at us! We miss you all terribly! Parks in Rocklin have reopened, but please remember to maintain social distancing for your safety throughout this parade.
We hope to see you on Friday!

ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
HOW PARENTS CAN HELP THEIR KIDS WHILE MANAGING DISTANCE LEARNING:
When Jennifer Szot sat down with her son to play a game involving mixed fractions, she found herself falling behind the fifth-grade math. “It took me five steps, and he did it in three,” she said. The assignment was one of many that her son is expected to complete at home, when he’s not working online, taking part in “live” classes, or participating in Google meetings with teachers. For Szot, who in regular life is a stay-at-home mother and volunteer, taking on the role of teacher, too, has been daunting.
“They teach everything differently,” she said, making her approach to such problems seem obsolete. And there are other challenges, she tells me while shushing the family dog, starting with the need to scatter everyone throughout the house so that the four simultaneous video conferences don’t clog the airwaves. She checks on her son while he’s in “class” to make sure he’s not secretly playing video games. She calms her 11th-grade daughter who is taking three A.P. classes and worrying about how she’ll manage the exams. Most of all, she tries to lower the collective stress that everyone feels under their roof, including her husband and 9th-grade daughter. “Nobody is sleeping well,” she said.
