Dear PPE Families,
On the current district calendar for 2016-17, March 16-17 are shown as potential snow make-up days. Since we will not need these days as instructional days, they will be added onto spring break and school will NOT be in session. Wednesday, March 15, will be the last day of the third nine weeks. Please make sure your child has turned in all assignments for this grading period. The fourth nine weeks will begin when we return to school on Tuesday, March 28.
Kindergarten registration began on Monday, March 6. Families can visit any of our 11 enrollment centers to begin the process of enrolling in kindergarten. To find a complete listing of requirements, enrollment center locations and necessary paperwork to enroll, visit MNPS.org or call (615) 259-4636.
If you have a child that will be in kindergarten beginning in August, or know of someone that does, you are encouraged to register before the end of April.
This helps us better plan for the upcoming school year. Thank you in advance.
Parents…….you have a couple of assignments during spring break. First, secure childcare for our Spring Auction to be held on Friday, April 7 @ Houston Station. Second, go online and purchase your tickets for this fun-filled Fiesta Fundraiser benefitting Percy Priest Elementary School. We need support from parents in all grade levels…..even those of you in 4th grade who will be leaving PPE in May! Come join the fun while raising funds for our great community public school! Money raised at this event pays for Reading and Math Interventionists, technology, library books, P.E., Art and Music supplies and equipment, work room assistants, Professional Development and much more.
Have a safe and happy spring break!
Mrs. Melinda Williams
