    Dear Families,

    A huge THANK You to our PTSO and Event Coordinators, Miranda Robertson and Sofia Yrazabal, for hosting a wonderful Teacher/Staff Appreciation week for us. Each day, staff is enjoying special treatment thanks to Astor families. Please know these kindnesses are greatly appreciated and mean a lot to all of us.

    I am so pleased to share some compliments Astor student received this week. A sub who has worked in many of our schools told me during cafeteria duty how polite the students were as they told her "please" and "thank you" when she helped them. Another visitor said it "felt good" to walk into the building. WOW! What great news to hear. Please compliment your children for me.

    The year is racing to an end. Please make extra efforts to get your children to school on time and NOT pick them up early for appointments, etc. We need them to be here the entire day to ensure maximum learning. We're aiming for 95% or higher for the last quarter of the year.

    Thank you!


    Dana Jacobs

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
