Form V November 2021

Hello Form V Families,

It is hard to believe that the first term of the school year is almost over (for those new to the Portsmouth Abbey community, the school year is divided into three terms). Exams and preparation for standardized tests can be a difficult time for our kids, but hopefully Thanksgiving break will provide well-deserved rest and relaxation with friends and family.

We were blessed with beautiful weather over Parents’ Weekend. It was wonderful to connect with so many of you, our fellow Fifth Form parents, at social and athletic events and teacher conferences. The busy schedule of classes and conferences helped us better understand, and appreciate, the challenging academics at Portsmouth Abbey.

Many thanks to everyone who has donated to the Annual Fund during Parent Participation Month. There is still time to donate! If you haven't had the chance to give yet, please join us in making a gift here We are very close to reaching our goal of 60% parent participation by November 15!

We hope that Thanksgiving is a time of joy for you and your family, blessed with good health, laughter and gratitude.
