June 2017 Newsletter: Year in Review
The PAR Board is
proud to work with our parents, administration, teachers, Board of Trustees, and students to constantly strengthen and support our community. We've enjoyed the continued growth and evolution of PAR this year and further strengthened our efforts of communication and collaboration. It's been a pleasure to build wonderful relationships within our community, and we look forward to further ways to involve more parents in our efforts. We wish Pierre Robion and Claire Medina for all of the time they have invested in PAR over the years and wish them the best in their new adventures. We also welcome our five new PAR Board members.
Have a peek below at some efforts that kept us busy this year. Have a wonderful summer every-one, and we'll see you in August!
