Tips for Parents

4th Grade Student Leadership Team    
The 4th Grade Student Leadership team is organizing an All-School service project. On January 10-11 students will be assembling sandwiches for the homeless.  Click HERE for more information about the Sandwich Project. 
In order to have all 21 classrooms participate, we need to raise approximately $800 in donations,  $1-2 per student.  Donations will go towards the supplies needed: bread, meat, cheese, and baggies.  Donations will be collected until Friday, December 21st.

There will be collection envelopes in each classroom.  We are excited to give PSI students this opportunity to give to people in need.
