STEM-a-thon scheduled for May 9. 
Please register by using the following link:


Quick Start for LightSail use at home:

If your child has an Internet connection and access to an iPad at home, your child will be able to log in at home and continue reading where he or she left off in school.  Just find the free LightSail app by searching LightSail in the Apple App Store.  Once the app has been downloaded, students will need to connect with PSES by entering our school code: kpelem5  



Dear Prescott Families,

   Testing season is upon us.  Please help your child be prepared by making sure s/he gets a good night's sleep and has a breakfast with protein to support alertness.  We decided to encourage students to wear any PSES shirt as a testing shirt. This will promote awareness of testing without adding an expense following the K.I.T.E. Festival and upcoming PTO gear sale.  SAT 10 and TCAP are summative tests for the year.  We look forward to students doing their best and showing all they have learned this year.  These test results are used to create our State Report Card, so please encourage your child to make our school shine.  Thank you for your support. 

Sincerely,

Catherine Jones

Thank you for reading with your child an additional twenty minutes each day.  Together, we can make a difference!




Breakfast is a huge success!


Dear Prescott Parents,

  The Community Eligibility Breakfast and Lunch have proven to be an amazing success.  We are seeing fewer tardies, more prepared and alert students, less separation anxiety, and more excitement to come to school.

  From 7:30-7:43, students in Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade will pick their breakfast up in the gym. If you are a parent of a K-2nd grade student who walks your child in prior to 7:43, please go to the gym to get his/her breakfast.  They will still eat in the classroom, but serving them early has helped lessen the length of the lines. Please arrive prior to 7:43 to allow your child to get breakfast in the gym.  Those students are escorted to class by teachers.   

  If you have a 3rd-4th grade student who needs breakfast, 3rd will be released with a PSES adult at 7:40 to get breakfast, but will not be released to classrooms until 7:45.  4th grade breakfast will be served from 7:40-7:55. Their line is fast, and they are great at making decisions.   

    If you are not able to arrive by 7:55, your child will need to eat breakfast prior to arrival. Breakfast carts will close at 7:55.  

    All students will need to be fed, have trash disposed of, and be ready for whole group instruction by 8:05.  All parents need to know that learning begins at 7:45.  As soon as students enter the class there is purposeful morning work to be completed.  Most classes have a “working breakfast” and a “working snack”.  Lunch is a social time, and it is served in the cafeteria.  

     The goal for all students if for them to be  in the classroom by 7:45 to begin morning work. Thank you for helping us support your child and a wonderful education at Prescott South Elementary!

Catherine Jones

Principal
