This is an exciting year – we have not only rebranded, but we are also thrilled to announce that we are moving to a new, larger campus. This new location will house both PS Academy and PS Elementary, bringing our students and staff all under one roof.
Over the last few months, you may have seen some glimpses of our new name and logos… This evolution in our brand was triggered by our students’ voices. This rebrand is for them. To make 2019 the year we eliminate judgement amongst those who don’t truly understand what it is to be exceptional; those who hear the word “autistic” and jump to conclusions based on stereotypes.
October is National Bullying Awareness month. This is the time we all take a moment to think about what causes bullying and how to prevent it. Well, here at PS Academy, we believe that the more unity we can have among students, the less likely it is that bullying will occur. We do so by not only making the classroom a place where students are encouraged to participate, but also through the various clubs offered. This semester we offer over twenty clubs, one of which is community club.
We’re halfway through the school semester and our students have been having a great time taking part in our clubs. We have over 20 clubs this semester! Each student can select the clubs they would like to participate in, and based on seniority and availability, their schedule is determined. Clubs are a great way for our students to practice their social skills while learning and having fun.
East Valley Tribune wrote up a great story about how our students 'tipped their hats off to Dr. Suess.'
"Pieceful Solutions, which operates three East Valley schools for K-12 children on the autism spectrum, will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday — and National Read Across America Day — today by making green eggs and ham with students."
