2022 PRS Staff Pie Rush

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time for the annual PRS PIE RUSH! The Thanksgiving Pie Rush is a great tradition at PRS which the Staff loves and anticipates each year. Each Staff member and bus driver picks a pie of their choice to enjoy with their family over Thanksgiving. We need about 95 pies to make this event happen. If you'd like to donate 1 or more pies, please sign up below. Pies can be homemade or store-bought (no frozen pies, please). Please deliver pies to 22 Partridge Dr or 101 Hobart St between Sunday, 11/20, and Tuesday, 11/22. There will be bins for the pies. Thank you for helping show the PRS staff we are grateful for them this Thanksgiving!

Support the Homeless This Holiday Season

For the past several years, members of the PRS community have helped Friends of the Homeless (FoH) of the South Shore provide Christmas gifts to families living in homeless shelters or transitional housing by donating newly purchased gifts. Again this year, the PRS Community Service Committee is sponsoring this holiday gift program. If you are interested in helping out the homeless this holiday season by sponsoring an individual or family, please contact Jen Korn ([email protected]). FoH aims to give three gifts to each person sponsored, totaling about $60.00 per person. We provide donors with the first name, age, gender, and sizes for each person on the list, as well as the client’s interests or gift suggestions as a guide for shopping. Thank you for your support.

Updates and Recaps

The PRS 4th grade took a field trip to Harvard University’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology on November 9. The grade was separated into two groups upon arrival which allowed for one to attend a hands-on learning program entitled “Igloos to Adobe” lead by an experienced educator, while the other group gained admission to both the Peabody Museum and the Harvard Museum of Natural History for open exhibition exploration. Students had the opportunity to handle artifacts used by Native American tribes to learn how natural resources were used to meet basic needs. The field trip was planned and funded by the PRS PTO. Special thanks to Lauren Davalla for organizing this trip!

The Fall Book Fair Co-Chairs would love to extend a tremendous thanks to all the PRS staff and parent volunteers who assisted with this year's event. Special thanks as well to South Shore Lawn Greetings for the wonderful signage outside the school. We hope you enjoyed attending the Fair with your children and greatly appreciate your support! Incredible job, Kristin Khtikian, Jane Cullinan and Nicole LaBrie! Thank you for all your hard work!

Many thanks to the 5th Grade Activities Committee, especially Catie O'Leary and Kelly Moore, for organizing the pizza & ice cream social on Wednesday. It was a blast! We are also grateful for Mrs. Bucey, Mrs. Harrington, Mrs. Riley and Mrs. Burritt who read bedtime stories to our students as they munched on pizza!
