We want to thank you for supporting PPE by participating in this year’s INVEST campaign. The number of classrooms with 100% pledge cards returned exceeded our expectations. As you may know, the funds raised through INVEST go toward this year’s PTO budget to assist with technology upgrades, library books, workroom assistants, interventionists, and our new STEAM lab. All of these extra supports would not be available without your financial assistance.
Percy Priest Elementary School strives to be a good neighbor to our friends in Forest Hills. We ask that you not park or block any entrances to nearby neighborhoods or side streets during arrival or dismissal. If you would like to walk your child to the front porch or you need to enter the building, please park in one of the front parking lots. We also ask that you review our arrival and dismissal procedures with anyone who may drop-off or pick-up your child from school. The procedures are different for arrival and dismissal, and for the safety of everyone, we ask that you share them with your caregivers.
There is only one line for drop-off during arrival which begins at 7:40 a.m. Please do not allow your child to exit your car before then or without a signal from a PPE staff member. Thank you so much for your cooperation.
Our Girls on the Run (GOTR) program is in jeopardy of being cancelled if we do not find a couple of coaches very soon. GOTR is for girls in 3rd and 4th grade and is sponsored by Mrs. Robyn Drew, 4th grade teacher. They meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. If you would like to give back to the community and help keep our GOTR program at PPE, please email Mrs. Drew at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for considering.
Your partners in education,
Mrs. Melinda Williams, Principal
Mr. Mark Mason, Assistant Principal
