Science Club 4th Nine Weeks

Posted on 1/23/2015 under 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, K, Schoolwide

Did your child miss the opportunity for science club during the 2nd nine weeks due to a schedule conflict?

Did your child love science club so much they want to do it again?!

Was your child in kindergarten and not old enough to participate?

If the answer to any of those questions is YES, then you are in luck! Ms. Brumleve and Mrs. Parker will offer the Science Experiment Club again during the 4th nine weeks (after spring break). We will have one day for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades and another day for Kindergarten and 1st grade in order to accommodate more students and have more grade level appropriate experiments. Be looking for more information coming home and in the newsletter in late February. Until then...keep experimenting!

Are your bookshelves and cabinets overflowing after the holiday season?  Please help Percy Priest by donating your age appropriate used books, DVDs and video games for the Used Book Sale, February 11-13.

We are collecting items in the front entrance of the school by the café for the next 3 weeks.  To save you some time, we will also be collecting donations during Friday morning drop-off beginning this Friday, January 16th. The sale will be a success with your generous donations of children’s picture books, easy readers, chapter books, age appropriate DVDs and video games. 

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Barbara Toole ( or Mende Pattee ( Thank you for your support!
