✊🏿 Black History Celebration! We send our kids to school to be educated, but we as parents are also educators to our children. Let's help heal our communities both at home and at school.

You’re Invited to Celebrate Black History with Your PAUSD Elementary Friends and PTAs!

Join your Fairmeadow PTA and the El Carmelo PTA as we team up with the other PAUSD Elementary PTAs to celebrate Black History! There are fun and interactive ways to take part. Do you know who invented Traffic Lights? The Ironing Board? The first Heart transplant?

We will be sending out further links and invites on Konstella and also on enews - stay tuned!
