PLA POST – January 2023

Abraham Lincoln was credited for saying, “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.”

We believe it is essential that we provide the very best support to our treasured youth. If you want to positively impact the future, training and equipping our youth is key.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held January 17th-27th. Each teacher will send their specific information with available time slots. Please don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about how your child is progressing at PLA.

As with most educational environments, parent teacher conferences at PLA are held to connect the teacher and parent as well as come together in a more formal setting to discuss your child’s progress spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally, and socially.

We dedicate time in the middle of the school year to spend quality time with each set of parents as at this time of year, the teacher has a better understanding of each child under his/her care.

We are dedicating this time for you to meet with your teachers. Each teacher has sent out information about available time slots. If you have multiple children, please coordinate conference times with each teacher.

Please be prayerfully considering any questions that you may want to ask. Also, note that we believe the parents are the first and most important teacher of the child and we look forward to working with you in partnership to create the best possible situation for your child. It is our pleasure to work together with you throughout the school year.

Once again, our philosophy is to always be available (within reason) and open to growth opportunities for students, while communicating such to parents to create the most beneficial learning environment for your child.
