Mark your calendars with information from PUSD’s District Calendar: 

PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION
Preschool registration is February 1 to February 15, 2020.   The first step to enroll a new student in any PUSD preschool is to complete the preschool registration request form for all classes. Registration request forms for 2020-2021 will be accepted starting February 1, 2020. The form is available and can be completed online at:
https://powayusd.com/preschool
Priority enrollment will be February 1 through February 15, 2020. A lottery process may be required if the request for a class exceeds openings in the class. Parents will be notified by March 15, 2020 about class placement or waitlist status. 
Registration request forms received after February 15 will be processed in the order received.  Children must turn three by September 2,  2020 to enroll  in preschool. School offices and preschool teachers will not accept or submit preschool registration request forms.
For more information go to the preschool website www.powayusd.com/preschool or send an email to preschool@powayusd.com

PRESIDENTS’ DAY AND LINCOLN’S BIRTHDAY HOLIDAY

PTA NOMINATING COMMITTEE
It’s that time of the year again where we start thinking about the PTA Board for the 2021-2022 school year.  Here is the process:
  1. Form a Committee - We need 3 main people (and 2 alternates) to serve on the Nominating Committee.  We will select these lucky people at the January 21 PTA Association Meeting.
  2. Nominations - The Nominating Committee looks for and vets people who are interested in serving on the PTA board next year and comes up with a slate of prospects.
  3. Election - At the March PTA Association Meeting, the PTA Association votes on who should be selected to serve on the PTA Board next year
 
If you are interested in serving on the Nominating Committee, please email Sotera at Sotera@PersonalLegacyLawyer.com by January 20, 2021.
