Last Day of School Year Program

posted May 28, 2009, 10:34 PM by P.H. Academy   [ updated Jan 18, 2017, 10:54 PM ]

Dear Parents,


I would like to inform each of you of the last day of the school year program for Ms. Ho and Ms. Lisa Bergen.  Ms. Ho’s classes will end on June 15th, 2009 (please make a payment for half of the monthly tuition for Ms. Ho’s classes).  Ms. Bergen’s classes will end on June 26th.  Therefore, tuition for Ms. Bergen’s classes will not be affected and include the same monthly payments for June.

We are very excited about the upcoming summer program.  Summer sessions will begin on July 6th, 2009.  It would be greatly appreciated if the summer registration forms were turned in as soon as possible.  You will be notified of your child’s summer schedule by June 12th.

Thank you for your patronage!  If you have any friends interested in the summer program, please let us know by filling out the form available in the documents section of our website.  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us.

February Newsletter: Welcome to the New P.H. Academy!

Dear Parents,

I wanted to take the time to thank each of you for your patience during the move. I know that it has been a drastic change for all of us, and I thank you for your continued support and dedication to P.H. Luckily, it has been a smooth transition, and the children have adjusted with ease to the many changes.

I would also like to inform each of you to some of the changes that move beyond the location. I have implemented a website, , and urge you to check it periodically for updates about curriculum, progress reports, conferences, and holidays. Also, there will be pertinent information about the upcoming summer program.

As an educator, I believe it is essential to give feedback to my students' guardians about their child's strength's and areas for improvement. Due to the move, P.H. Academy will now be using a different progress report template. They will be given out every other month, and the intial report will be handed out the first week in April. This week, I will be handing back your children's December and January work. Please review it at your earliest convenience. If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to set up a conference, do not hesitate to email me at . Furthermore, you may reach me at the new office number: (818) 957- 4302.

Many of you have had questions about payment and upcoming holidays. The tuition will be paid at the beginning of the month. This month you may make checks payable to Lisa Bergen. However, starting March 1st, please make them payable to P.H. Academy I. I will be open and teaching classes on February 16th, 2009. Since President's Day is almost upon us, it would be much appreciated if I am notified in advance of any student's absences. Therefore, I will be able to schedule make-up sessions in a timely manner. I look forward to hearing from each of you! May we continue to have a successful rest of the school year!
