Algonkian PTA continues to provide ongoing educational and cultural arts assemblies for our Algonkian students, teachers/staff, and parents... featuring artists and performers in visual, musical, literary, historic, scientific, dramatic, sports, drama, and character education. These assemblies are unique opportunities for students to experience performances free of charge here at school rather than having to travel to a museum, theater, or to musical and sports arenas.
We invite all parents (and younger siblings!) to come and enjoy with your children/students.
Look for upcoming assembly alerts in your PTA newsletter, via e-mail if you are on the PTA's e-mail list, and of course, here on our PTA website. Any questions, contact Becky Belogay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
