We adopted a new tagline this year: Empowering Through Authentic Engagement
. Over the past couple of weeks, we have certainly seen this in action: the conversation with the ISS, the National History Day competition, the Storm the Citadel Trebuchet event, the Vex Robotics competition, Leap Day sessions, Odyssey of the Mind preparations, the Girls Basketball Team’s first playoff game, the SSEP launch, and development of Science Fair projects. This is just a sampling of all that goes on around here everyday. As we roll into spring, there will be multiple activities and opportunities for our students to put the typical academics into relevant contexts. It is definitely our goal here at PSA to live out our tagline so that students can be equipped to be successful members of our community and world.

7th and 8th Grade Science:
There are some of Miss Craddock's 7th Grade students that still need to complete the tri-fold for their science fair project in order to be prepared for the fair on 3/24/17. These students need to complete and turn in their tri-folds by 3/15/17. If they do not, they will be standing at their table with their printed out lab reports and no display as the school community and judges walk around. If you are not sure your child has turned this in, please contact Miss Craddock.
