Wow, is 2020 really over?! With each new year it is easy to imagine all of our problems being left behind somehow, but as we all know that isn’t really the case. Waking up in 2021 didn’t really change much, but it is a milestone. It marks our successful first semester navigating the unknowns of in-person learning, it marks a new year of exceptional education, and it marks the end of our 2020 Annual Fund campaign!
We met our match and were able to raise $200,000!
That is a reason to celebrate! Through your generosity we will be able to cover the additional costs of running our facilities, offer continuing education for staff, and provide supplies, tools, technology in the classroom. It is also going to help us address the challenges and unanticipated costs associated with running a school safely and effectively during the pandemic. As a community we have come together to defy the odds.
Students ignite their spark on the board! The fireworks illustrate the community effort in supporting our students at PNA!
We want to say a HUGE thank you for your generous support, we are at a loss for words for the kindness and warmth we have received. We look forward to this new year with YOU!
In PE students have been learning how to cross country ski!
