Are you around on Monday, August 3rd this summer?  Please stop by the Paly Tower building between 4 and 6 pm and pick up your Back-to-School packet.  It will save us the $3000+ cost of mailing out these packets.  There will be light refreshments and Paly and PTSA representatives would love the opportunity to say hello before the school year gets into full swing. If you are in town please stop by!!  Any packets left at the end of this time will be mailed home.  All packet forms and donations should be returned on picture day or in the office once school begins. Photo forms will need to be kept separate for students to hand to photographers.
