• Earth Week 2022

  • Happy Earth Month!

    Every day is Earth Day at PPS!

    During the week of April 18th - 23rd, especially, we hope that everyone in our school community will take a moment to think about how they can make the earth and our community a better place.

    This year’s website offers fun ways to engage and take action from school and from home. Find ways to get involved and events below. Enjoy!
