Newsletter: March 26, 2021 Word Recognition Contest this Sunday!

Happy spring!  

As NJ is gradually opening up and lifting restriction, I would like to let you know that if PDS resumes normal renting of its facility, we will plan to go back to PDS in the upcoming school year provided that it’s safe to go back to in-person learning. However, I do not think we will have a decision prior to summer break.

This Sunday, 3/28, is the Word Recognition contest. Best Luck to all participants!

There is no school next Sunday, April 4. The school will resume on April 11.
