Notes from Principal Jones

Dear Prescott South Families, 

    I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new Prescott families.  We are excited to work with the Pre K and Kindergarten families who are new to our campus.  Welcome to the new students who have moved into the Prescott zone. We are thrilled for you to join our Prescott family!  Your child's education is their ticket to a successful future.  Our goal is for all Prescott Elementary graduates to have a strong foundation that will prepare them for the college and career of their choice.  

      Your feedback is valued at Prescott Elementary.  My contact information is provided to better serve your family.

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