We are looking for many helping hands this Wednesday, Aug 15 as we move into MAUMC. The first load of furniture should arrive at MAUMC around 11/11:30. We will post a better estimate that day after the truck is loaded. After we unload the truck it will pick up all the storage cabinets at the UHAUL site on the Northside. We will need helping hands there too. The truck will then return to MAUMC to unload the cabinets at (very!) roughly 2 pm. Thankfully, the cabinets are on wheels and do not need to go up or down steps! Please come and bring your strong friends with you!
Please be aware our new registration system will not allow you to register a child for a class if they are not already at the minimum age requirement. Parents, please email the teacher for permission to place your child in that class. Teachers, please carefully monitor your email over the next two weeks. If you give approval for a younger, or older child, to join your class please let Jes know so she can override the system. Her email is registrarPALS@gmail.com Thanks!
Friendly reminder – Registration for teachers opens on Monday, August 13th at 9 am 🙂
Here is the link to sign up for the field trip. Please sign up if you are planning on attending.
Here are more details:
Please join us for our Fall Field Trip to Fun Slides Pittsburgh!
Fun Slides offers carpet skating with ramps for all ages. We will be able to take full advantage of the carpet slides and the facility has thrown in the “Extras” for us without the extra charges! The “Extras” includes dodgeball, an obstacle course, and bounce and slide inflatables. The price of $11 per person includes access to the carpet skating facility, the skates, and the Extras. Typical cost would be $19.49 per person so come take advantage of the field trip pricing, hanging out with friends, meeting new families, and having fun!
We do have to fill out waivers, which you can do on their website or when you arrive. They do have snacks available, but you are welcome to bring our own food into the facility if you would like.
Check out the website for more details about the facility if you are interested:
Date: 09/05/2018 (Wed.)
Time: 11:00am – 1:30pm
Location: 1130 Perry Hwy, Suite 300, Pittsburgh, PA 15237
We are excited to announce that we are now ready for families to request membership on our new website: https://www.homeschool-life.com/2602/signup
Once you complete this form and submit it, we will double-check that your clearances are on file with PALS and will be current for the entire semester. If so, your membership will be approved. Please give us up to 7 days to do this as we could potentially have a lot of requests to verify. You will not be able to register for classes once class registration opens until this process is complete.
Once your membership is verified, you will be all set to register for classes on the appropriate date. Teacher registration will open on August 13th and all other registration will open on August 20th.
At this point we will only be using the new website for fall class registration as we are still working to get all aspects of the new website set for our organization. So please continue to use the old website for all other information: https://palsenrichment.org/
We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Whitney Park at 11:30 this morning. Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch and blanket (there are no picnic tables, but there is a grassy area that is perfect for picnic blankets). Then we will go tour our new location at 1:00 PM. If you meet us at 1:00 PM please meet us on the sidewalk outside the Whitney Avenue entrance to Mifflin Avenue Methodist Church.
We will be taking anyone who is interested on tours of our new location at Mifflin Avenue Methodist Church next Wednesday! We are going to meet at Whitney Park at 11:30 AM for the kids to play and parents to hang out. Then we will head to the our new location at 1:00 PM. We will be taking everyone through in groups to be as respectful to the church staff and facility as possible, so if you decide to meet us at the church at 1:00 PM please wait for us on the sidewalk so we can form into groups and walk through together. Please feel free to invite new friends who might be interested in checking out PALS. We look forward to seeing everyone!
If you can’t make it next Wednesday, we will be announcing a couple of work days at the new location in August, so you are welcome to come and see the new facility then as well.
We have a very first draft of the fall schedule ready to view. Please note, room numbers are not accurate, many class descriptions are not complete, and this link is to a new website that is not ready for use yet, but will enable you to look at the classes that have been proposed so far. The rest of the site is still under construction. Please keep the class proposals coming, especially for preschool and elementary aged students. Proposals can continue to be made until July 21st at:
