We love when students take ownership over the campus! This advisory is taking it upon themselves to make some updates to our student bathrooms - they started making lists of things that may need repair or improvement, then they plan to brainstorm what they’d like to add or change, and ideas for keeping it in good shape. 💥 We love to see it!

Our first graders spent the morning at the aquarium on Tuesday!

Their aquarium visit was a preview of what’s to come in their animals and habitats unit and served as an exciting introduction to the wonders they’ll be exploring! in action! 🫶🏽


Relationships are at the center of everything we do at PIA - from strategic lessons in the classroom that develop our emotional intelligence, to the way we handle conflict, to the way we interact with and partner with our community - relationships will always be our priority. Receiving this kind of feedback from our families is so affirming. 💜

With mixed emotions, today we say farewell to Ms. Daphne Guevara. While we will miss her, we understand that life sometimes takes unexpected turns. Ms. Daphne made the difficult decision to leave due to personal reasons.

Ms. Daphne has been an integral part of our school family this year, and her dedication to our students has not gone unnoticed. She brought so much joy, care, and understanding into her classroom and she'll be greatly missed. Please join us in sending her well wishes and positive vibes as she embarks on this new chapter.

We wish you well, Ms. Daphne. Today, tomorrow, and always. 💜

One of our math groups has been practicing adding and subtracting decimals — so they decided to put their skills to the test by opening up a restaurant!

Customers (our primary students) stopped by the cafeteria to visit their take out shops and order some food. Meanwhile, math students added up their orders, made change, and worked on their customer service skills 🫶🏽
