Hello everyone. These are my updates for the month of November. The colors on the trees are changing and the leaves are falling. Our campus, which is already beautiful, is even prettier than usual. I am sure you are seeing this where you are as well. This month I just have brief updates for you and a recap from the last month. October was a busy month full of celebrations and recognitions. One of our annual traditions is to recognize the memory of Carl Way, a former employee, who passed away. He was a very big supporter of unity in his life and we recognize that with Unity Day in his memory. We also celebrated Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month with two guest speakers that talked to our students. It was a wonderful celebration. We also had community events like the Walk4Hearing. This is an opportunity for fundraising in support of the school which also happens in October. We had our soccer and volleyball tournaments. Now we are getting ready for November. It is a shorter month because we have school closures for Election Day, for Veterans’ Day, and then at the end of the month when families get together we are closed then as well. I do want to put on everyone’s radar that PSD typically has the PSD Alumni Holiday Bazaar in the fall but it was canceled for this year. It was supposed to be November 19th but instead they have canceled it. There is a different event coming up on December 10th. That will be the 2020 reunion celebration. We did have our Bicentennial as a school and now the alumni reunion is preparing for their celebration, which I believe, will be in 2024. In preparation for their celebration in 2024 they will be having a series of fundraisers. One of those is coming up on December 10th. Of course we have other celebrations every year and this year we have our students involved again with the Thanksgiving Day Parade. More information on that is still coming but we will share information as soon as we get it. We will also put it on the website. Check back for the details of our students’ participation and what time they’ll be on TV for the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Last but certainly not least I also want to talk about the annual tradition in November of Giving Tuesday. Keep an eye out for this opportunity to support PSD through fundraising. We have Giving Tuesday as well as our annual appeal. The annual appeal happens twice a year and you probably see those mailings come from our IA office. They happen in the fall and the spring so we typically have those in November or December and then again in the spring around May. We look forward to having your continued support for PSD through the annual appeal. Thank you so much for your support. Have a wonderful time with your family and friends this month in November. Take care.
