School Celebrations

Each month, both PES and PMHS, will celebrate academic successes, good attendance, and behavior achievements. With the month of September behind us, we are preparing for our first school-wide celebrations. Since the month of September was attendance awareness month, our first celebration on October 17 will focus on school attendance. Each student who has perfect attendance thus far, will have their name put into a raffle. Prizes will include school supplies and gift cards. Be sure to ask your child how it goes!

Administration

PES Improvement Team Meeting

A team of community members, parents, staff, and administrators are working together to create a logic model that outlines the strategies and objectives for the PES school improvement plan. The team includes three subcommittees that are focused on best practices, data, and communications. New members are always welcome to join. We hope you can join us at our October 28 meeting. A light dinner will be served at 5:30 PM and the meeting will follow at 6:00 PM.
