Message from Your Principal

Posted on 2/27/2015 under 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, K, Schoolwide

Dear Parents,

Welcome back....again!  To say we need to get back in our routine is an understatement.

Let’s hope March will bring us sunshine and much warmer weather.

Our Read-a-thon has been sidetracked this year, but on Wednesday our students were able to hear from three Vanderbilt University baseball players who spoke to the boys and girls about goal-setting.  The three young men were Carson Fulmer, Dansby Swanson, and Kyle Smith.  They also shared their favorite children’s books and visited a few classrooms before returning to their classes on campus.  As I told the boys and girls, it is not very often that National Champs visit your elementary school.

Today, Friday, is Jeans and Jersey Day and Monday is Book Character Day.  Students are encouraged to dress up as their favorite book character on Monday.

Eat out for PPE will be on Wednesday, March 4th at California Pizza Kitchen in Green Hills.

Snow day make-up days will be held on March 18-20, 2015.  Therefore, we will not be hosting Intersession at Percy Priest on those days. If your child will not be in attendance due to pre-arranged plans, please let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible.  Thank you.

MNPS Spring Break will be held March 23-March 30, 2015.  Students will return on Tuesday, March 31st

Have a wonderful weekend!

All the best,

Melinda Williams

Thanks to all who have shared photos for the PPE yearbook. We still need more photos, though, especially of extracurricular activities and events, including basketball teams, flag football teams, soccer teams, cheerleaders, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Chess Club, Girls on the Run, etc.. We also need additional photos from several classrooms. If you have photos from field trips, classroom activities, musical performances, holiday parties, etc., please share those as well. Photos must be high quality digital images. Please email photos as soon as possible to Angie Howard
