    Schools ends Thursday, June 15 this year
    March 7, 2017: The PPS Board voted to change the April 7 teacher-planning day to an instructional day and to extend the school year to June 15.
    New "June" Calendar reads as follows:
    June 13th Field Day
    June 14 5th Grade Continuation
    June 15 Last day of School
  • Date change for the end of school


    We just learned from reading the PPS Pulse that the last day of school has changed. We want to make sure you are aware of this change.

    Last day of school is now June 13, 2017

    Due to inclement weather on December 8 and 9, the PPS Board of Directors voted at their December 13 board meeting to add two days to the end of the school year. The last day of school is now June 13, 2017. View a PDF of the 2016-17 calendar here. The impact of the snow days on December 15 and 16 will be reviewed in January.

Principal's Message

  • As we move into October I wanted to make you aware of a calendar change for the month.
    We are moving the book character spirit day from Wednesday, October 19th to Monday October 31st.  We would love to see your creativity with a book character costume.  Most characters are in book so it shouldn't be an issue.  If you run into a situation where it causes drama, we will happily accept you in your chosen halloween costume.  Please remember that this is a family friendly event.  Avoid anything that will make our youngest friends cry.  Also, do not include any weapons (knives, guns, swords…) with your costume.  Teachers also ask that masks are not worn during the school day.  You can put them on for the parade.  

    Take care,

    Heather Hull
