Puma Pride PTA Newsletter
May 12, 2022

PTA's Mission is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
Social media has become a huge part of our culture's form of communication. We would appreciate parents/guardians, teachers, and school staff to come “like” the Puma Pride PTA at Firestone Charter Academy Facebook page. We will be using this forum for reminders, updates and announcements alongside the @pumapridepta Instagram page. It would be amazing if our likes/followers equaled that of our enrolled students!
