PCA Gently Used Uniform Sale – You are welcome to attend our “Gently Used Uniform Sale” going on now in our front lobby. Our school hours are 7:30AM to 5:30PM. We are asking for a small donation if you find any uniforms that you would like to take. Donation boxes will be on the tables for your convenience.

Student Styles Spring Sale – Student Styles will be having a “Spring Sale” from June 1 to June 15th with 10% off all uniforms, items, in stock, store orders, and web orders. They are located at 15 Cobbee Rd., Latham and can be reached at 518-220-9244.

Perennial Flower Request – If you have not already noticed our garden on both sides of the front sidewalk have been looking great! A BIG thank you to Jodi Agnew and Analise Agy for cleaning it up. We are now looking for perennial flowers to plant there. If you are cleaning up your garden and have any extra perennial flowers to donate please let us know.  We would also like to request that you keep the children off of the gardens so that the flowers can take root and grow with beauty. Jody and Analise worked hard and we all need to respect that. Thank you!

Paul Effman Music – As the school year comes to a close, we want to offer you the chance to SAVE $25 for each child that you register for next year (2019-2020 school year). You can register students who have been in the program before and new students who will be participating for the first time – all students will receive the discount. Also, if you rent an instrument and plan to rent again next year, you do not need to return it. When you register, choose the “Keep My Current Rental” option. If you do want to keep your rental, please register before your Spring Concert and your instrument will not have to be returned when they are collected.

This discount is valid until 6/30/19, so sign up now!
