Puma Pride PTA Newsletter
September 9, 2021

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!
**We have a few spots left to be filled**

Our new Spirit Rock is up and available for rent!

The purpose of the Spirit Rock is to promote school spirit at Firestone Charter Academy. Parents, caregivers, students, and staff will have the opportunity to "Rent the Rock" to recognize a student's birthday, show school spirit, thank or recognize a teacher or staff member, mark congratulatory events, etc. It is a great way to spread positive messages and increase excitement in our community! 100% of the funds raised through the Spirit Rock will be used by Puma Pride PTA for the benefit of our students and the school.
