Portledge Parents Association

Dear Portledge Parents, 
 
I hope you all had a great Summer!  Welcome to another school year, which is full of promises in academics, adventures and exciting future plans for the Portledge campus. Students are so excited to take part and see the new changes before they graduate from Portledge!
 
The Parents Association has many exciting plans for the year ahead. Mark your calendars for the below dates. I look forward to seeing and meeting you all at them.  Our first Parents Association meeting will be on Thursday, September 13 at 8:30 am in Bahnik Hall. I sincerely encourage you to participate and come with any questions or concerns you may have for the upcoming school year. I am here to represent you and work with the Portledge staff to answer any questions or concerns.
 
Founders Day is Saturday, September 22 and another great opportunity to get involved and enjoy our beautiful campus! Save the date to come and enjoy the day along with your children, family, friends, faculty, staff, and of course Simon Owen-Williams, Head of School. I am impatiently waiting for Founders Day to arrive by thinking of cotton candy. It’s my personal favorite!
 
Please get involved; you can help and volunteer for the Founders Day event along with the many other upcoming events during the 2018-19 school year. We will keep you informed about upcoming events and ways to get involved as the year progresses. I hope to see all of you participate and attend all these great events. 
 
My best wishes for the year ahead,
Reyhaneh Foyouzi Mostafavi
