Other News & Event Recaps

CORI checks - All parents/guardians/caregivers who volunteer in school require a CORI check each school year. Forms can be found in the main office or here and must be returned in person so that your license/identity can be verified. They cannot be sent in your child’s backpack.

The first PRS PTO Meeting of the year: Wed, Sept. 21, 8:30am in the PRS Cafeteria. The PTO meeting is for ALL parents and guardians, regardless if you've been involved at all. It's a great place to hear more about what is happening at school, learn about upcoming events, and hear from Principal Lamothe and School Adjustment Counselor AC Decker on getting your child off to a strong organizational start. Younger children are not only welcome but encouraged to come! We will have fun activities for them so consider it a future PRS playgroup : )

The PRS PTO Fall Mixer will be at the Red Rose down the street from PRS at 7pm (or after curriculum night) on September 28th. The event is free with a cash bar, but we would greatly appreciate you RSVP'ing to get a headcount. 

BOKS Co-Chair Needed!

BOKS is the awesome before-school fitness program that gets kids moving and ready to learn! PRS PTO typically runs two 6-week sessions per school year. Coleen Power has kindly stepped up to co-chair this committee but we need another parent or two to assist her. Without another co-chair, we may not run BOKS this fall. Please consider stepping up -- it's lots of fun! Email PRSPTOemail@gmail.com to learn more!
