Piney Post- August Issue - August 22, 2022
Mon, Aug 22 4:06pm

Welcome Back PGS! The PTO would like to welcome you to our very first publication of our Piney Post this year! The Piney Post is the main way the PTO will communicate with families about important information throughout the year. We are excited to host a number of fun activities in the coming months, so be sure to stay connected through Konstella so you can find ways to volunteer and be a part of the action. The PTO Board would like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful academic year. We hope to see a lot of new faces this year!
