First Quarter Ends

Hard to believe it, but we've reached the end of our first quarter. Progress reports will be mailed or sent home in the next week or so. We're proud of all our students' accomplishments! We've been working hard and playing harder -- scroll down in this blog for pictures of our Halloween fun!

Save the date!

PACTT's annual Thanksgiving Feast will take place Wednesday, November 23rd from 1:45 to 2:45 p.m. School families will gather at the main school building (7101 N. Greenview), and Transition / Voc families will celebrate at the Transition Center (1544 W. Morse).

As always, we'll provide the turkey and all the fixin's. If you'd like to bring something for the festivities, a dessert or drink (juice, pop, water), would be appreciated.

The little things DO add up ...

Thanks to your support, we've had a successful semester of school fundraising!

- We earned nearly $300 from Target RedCard users (we get 1% of all purchases made using the card). 

- We've collected more than $300 worth of Boxtops for Education (we earn 10 cents for each boxtop sent in -- Do THAT math, and you'll see that the little things really DO add up - keep sending them in!).

- And we sold more than 40 Entertainment Books!

Thank you for all your support! For more information on the Target card, For more info on the Boxtops for Education, see:
