Weekly PTO Newsletter 5/20
What a wonderful week we had, from Field Day to Spring Sing to 4th Grade Graduation! Thank you to all of the parents and caregivers who came and helped make each of those (and many other activities!) so much fun for our kids. It will be one last banner week so please be sure to check out the special dress up days below!
End of Year Technology Notes
Thank you so much for your fabulous care of our technology over the 21-22 school year. All technology must be turned in before students break for the summer. Please make sure all laptops, charging cables, hotspots, and laptop cases are returned by May 26th. Over the summer, our laptops will be refreshed and updated. If your student is attending the Promising Scholars Program, they will be assigned a laptop at their assigned school. Students can still access Clever (Lexia, iReady, etc) over the summer by using their logins on a computer or tablet at home. Login information will be sent home today.
We need your help to make next year the best year yet at Percy Priest! Dedicated and engaged parents are a key ingredient to making our school the great school that it is. There are big and small volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Please check out our volunteer form and let us know what things interest you. We’ll be in touch with more information. If you have questions of any kind, please contact us at email@example.com. Thank you!
