Great News! Asa Packer has a new newsletter team this year! We are 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, working with Miss Murphy and Mr. Horvath, and we will work hard to bring you an awesome newsletter every month - because we love to write!

Our writers are Abrielle B., Lauren F., Lillie N., Addison W., Gianna B., Leyna J., Nurbanu C., Rebecca D., Brady F., Addison G., Blake J., Mckinzie L., and Ella S. We hope you are just as excited as we for the newsletter. Thank you for reading The Puma Press! By: Leyna J and Lauren F.
Asa Packer’s yearly Walk-a-Thon was held on September 22nd this year. It’s a fun day filled with walking or running with friends and even your teachers! The Walk-a-Thon is good exercise for everyone. During the event, each student gets a little card that gets marked by a parent volunteer for each lap you complete. Students walk to earn money for our school to buy things like Chromebooks, library books, and to go on field trips. The total laps walked this year was 4,421 which is equal to 1105.25 miles! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers for your time and donations. We loved the Walk-a-Thon, and we are looking forward for another great one next year! By: Nurbanu C. and Rebecca D.
