Dear Prescott Families,

   Please continue the scheduled Chapters for  The World According to Humphrey . It is also a great time to work on age appropriate skills for math and reading.  My challenge question for the snow break is, "What would you invent to make snow days better?" Please email your ideas, pictures, and designs to cjones2@pcsstn.com.  

Thank you,

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!
