Your input and honest feedback are valuable to us, and it’s time to let us know what you’re thinking about all matters at PRA! The School Accountability Committee (SAC) has updated the annual Operations and Academic Surveys for you to complete for the 2014-15 school year. The survey questions are designed to
generate results that are measurable and useful to PRA’s leadership. The more participants, the more informative the survey data is. The surveys will be available to complete online from February 6th through 20th and should only take about 15 minutes (honest!).
In order to encourage every PRA family to submit their answers, SAC has arranged some incentives:
* The homeroom elementary class (K-3 / 4-6) with the highest participation will earn a class pizza/ice cream party in April.
* 7th and 8th graders will receive one extra dress of choice day in April if at least 75% of the middle school parents participate.
Remember, the surveys are completely anonymous, so please answer frankly and honestly. In order to serve you, the PRA community, to the best of our ability, we ask every family to take the few minutes required to participate in the survey.
We are still accepting orders for our 2014-15 PRA
* dedication ads
* business owner advertising
Please see the Feb 5th e-folder for the step-by-step instructions on how to place your order for each of these individual items. Dedication Ads and Business Ads are a great way to show your support for your student and to get the word out about your business to the PRA family.
