Please join us for an end of the year spring picnic at Oak Hill Park on Tuesday, May 30th from 5-8 p.m.! We will have food trucks, park games, music and a 50/50 raffle! This is a great way to end the year for the students as they say good-bye to friends for the summer! It’s also a chance to take a break from cooking and cleaning up dinner! Money raised at this picnic will help defray the cost for next years 5th graders two day retreat. Hope to see you and your family there!
As in the past, we will be treating the staff to coffee and treats in the lounge all week, as well as the annual Staff Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday, May 10th in the staff lounge.
To help make the week a success, we are asking for volunteers to bring food items throughout the week. This event is supported entirely by PSI family donations. Please see the SignUpGenius link here to see the items that are needed.
Please make sure to label all your serving dishes and utensils. All serving items will be washed and ready for you to pick up in Staff Lounge by Friday, May 12th. Please label any Gluten Free or Vegetarian items.
If you have any questions, send an email to Carlee Bendickson, firstname.lastname@example.org or Jacalyn Miller, email@example.com.

I’m writing to share about 1st grade (Sra Brown) classmate’s situation. Becktu’s father, Belete, had a heart attack and emergent open heart surgery recently. He is on the road to recovery but has had to be out of work and unfortunately does not have disability benefits through his employer. As a result the family is facing significant financial hardship. They are from Ethiopia so do not have any family here either.
Please read the website and donate if you are willing and able. Please keep them in your thoughts as they navigate these difficult times.
Winning bidders can pick up their items during the following times at Park Spanish Immersion School (near the media center):
Saturday, March 18 10:00 am-2:00 pm
Wednesday, March 22 3:00 pm-6:00 pm
Items must be paid for before picking them up. You may bring a check to the pickup time (this helps reduce fees) or pay online via PayPal. You may access your invoice(s) on the auction website by going to My Account –> Invoice. The auction website may be accessed from www.psicarnival.com.
Please contact Annalise Atkins, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.

Calling all writers….by the way, that’s all of you! PSI is making its 4th edition published book of K-5 student writing called La revista. We need your best writing to make this happen. Between now and Feb 24th we are asking students to submit 1 or 2 writing pieces (1 Spanish and 1 English) to be considered for La revista.
We encourage all K-5 students at PSI to participate. It’s your chance to be a PUBLISHED writer. Please see the information sheet with all the details, but don’t delay. All submissions need to be done electronically through Google Docs. Then share your document through Google to: email@example.com . If your writing piece is in Spanish, please share it on Google with your classroom teacher too. We hope to see lots of great writing from you this year!
Prefer to write a check? Send a check for $15 to school with your child’s name and grade in the memo line. Please put the check in an envelope and mark it “Yearbook”. You may turn it in at the office or ask your child to turn it into their classroom teacher. (Avoid all this by ordering online above!)
All orders must be submitted by March 17th to reserve a copy. No additional books will be ordered so secure your copy today!
We have several Amity Interns that are taking English classes on Tuesday nights from 6-9. We need your help providing rides to and from those classes. This is a quick and easy way to support the Amity program!
Amities need to be picked up at 5:45 p.m. at PSI and taken to Eisenhower Elementary School (1001 Highway 7, Hopkins).
Amities need to be picked up at 9:00 p.m. and driven to their various homes. A link to all addresses can be found here.
If you can help, please sign up here (first opportunity is this Tuesday).
Total number of Amities will be no more than 5 (Ignacio, Sergio, Noelia, Michael, Yaneth).
Additional classes may be added and SUG will be updated to reflect that.
Thank you for your help and support!
Your Amity Coordinator Team,
On Tuesday, February 7th – Bring the whole family to enjoy a night
of gym games and yoga! Bring dry shoes (no wet boots/shoes on the gym floor), and your own water bottle. An adult must accompany students to this event.
Families will meet in the gym where P.E. teacher, Sr. Watkins, and P.E. Assistant, Sra. Huss, will lead the group in a variety of high energy games!
If fast paced isn’t your thing, then head downstairs to stretch and relax with some family yoga. There will be a series of four, 10-minute yoga sessions geared towards kids and families.
Fruit will be provided at the end of the night to refuel.
Hope to see everyone there!
Come stock up on reading materials for your children, birthday presents for friends, books for classrooms and most importantly, purchase Spanish books for your children.
A portion of the money spent gets returned to our school and raises money for our school to have wonderful Amities!!
Come stop by during Family Fitness Night. Also Wednesday and Thursday nights we will have a raffle for a free book!
Hope you can make it- your kiddos will be so excited about their new books.
Please come help volunteer your time- without your help this would not be possible! Click here to sign up.
