On June 10, PPAS will be hosting a Pride Fest during 4th and 5th periods – but we need your help! We are looking for volunteers to make baked goods for the bake sale. Please fill out our volunteer form. Thank you for your help in making this event a success!
Thank you to all the PTA parents who answered the call for donated treats for our first monthly bake sale. We were overwhelmed by the abundance of goodies, and the kids were so excited! Thanks to you, we were able to raise just under $400 for the PTA.
We’ll be having these sales on the first Friday of each month through June, so please keep the goodies coming!
And if you’re available to help with the sales, please contact email@example.com.
This Thursday, March 3 through Saturday, March 5, our students will perform Scenes and Songs from Rutka, a New Musical in Progress, directed by Kyle Pleasant.
RUTKA is a powerful new indie-rock musical about a young teen and her friends trying to grow up in a world gone mad around them. It’s based on the internationally-acclaimed book RUTKA’S NOTEBOOK, an actual diary left behind by 14-year old Rutka Laskier in the Jewish Ghetto in Bedzin, Poland, in 1943. RUTKA tells the visceral story of a young teen and her friends, trying to live life and find hope, resilience, and resistance, while facing the challenges of the world around them. It’s a show that feels modern and raw, with a groundbreaking indie-rock musical score. With the show still in development, PPAS audiences will get the first-ever look at this new musical as it begins its journey.
Please order tickets and watch the show!
