A Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

Spring is here and with it comes rain showers and warmer weather. We are almost ready to begin the last few months of school and these will be busy ones indeed. April is packed full of field trips, PTSO events, and family events that I hope you and your students will be able to attend. We will also begin state testing this month and I encourage you to contact us if you have any questions.

We'd like to invite you to join us on Facebook as we now have a page, (see the link on the left side of the home page). Like us on PPS Astor K-8 School to find out what's happening, get updates, and see photos!

As you enjoy Spring Break, I hope you are renewed and it is a safe and relaxing time for you and your family!
