Dear Panther Families,
Wow! Only 2 months left of school!
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of some special events. These are school-wide events so please continue to get classroom & grade specific updates from your child’s classroom teacher.
PRS Game Night:
Many thanks to the Paul Road School and Family Association for purchasing additional board games for use in our classrooms and school library. PRSFA also funded the door prizes for this event. We were excited to have lawn games and other outside activities donated to us from Chili Recreation. Thank you to all those that came out to the event!
Pardon our Dust:
What has become a slogan for us is now a reality. Construction is moving along very well and on schedule! We are becoming more and more excited as the new school entrance begins to take shape. We thank you for your continued patience and for being flexible through this process. For a detailed look inside the construction, check our newest VLOG, which can be found on our social media platforms, as well as on our YouTube channel (all @paulroadschool).
Please note that for recess and P.E. class, we do try to go outside and get fresh air as much as possible. It is very important that students wear or bring closed-toed shoes (sneakers) every day until the end of the school year! If students are wearing shoes deemed unsafe they may not be able to participate in PE or during recess.
