June 5 Report Card Update

PCSS is prepared to send Report Cards home through School Messenger. Parents may continue to contact schools to update email addresses. If you have not been able to check your email address in PowerSchool, you may check through your child’s contact information. When PCSS receives the scores from the TN Department of Education, we will immediately begin the process of finalizing report cards for release. The approximate timeline for release of HS report cards is on or before June 9th. Our intent is to release report cards for Grades 3­8 on or before June 20.

As a reminder, report cards will be released via School Messenger to parents with email addresses in PowerSchool. If an email address is not available in PowerSchool, parents may go by the school to pick up the child’s report card, or the school will mail if you dropped off a self­addressed envelope.

We apologize for any inconvenience the delayed release of the Report Cards may have caused. PCSS is committed to a timely release upon receipt of all necessary information to ensure report cards will be correct. Any questions may be directed to the Office of Teaching and Learning, Denette Kolbe at 931­525­4710, or kolbed@pcsstn.com



Previous year's yearbooks are for sale in the office $3.

***Please pick up all medication in the nurse's office between 8-10 Tuesday, May 23, 2017 or it will be safely discarded according to School Board Policy. ***

5/19/17

PCSS will be sending 2017 Report Cards electronically this year via School Messenger.  

        To ensure that we have all contact information correct in the system, there will be a delay in the release of report cards.  This is a secure process.

    Please take the following steps to help us.  Check your email address in your student’s contact information in PowerSchool.  If you don’t currently have an email address on file, contact your child’s school with that address. Report cards will be sent as soon as all information is verified.

    Our goal is to have all report cards released by the end of May.. If you do not have current access to email, you may send a self-addressed envelope to the school or go by the school to pick up a printed copy of the report card once they are released.

    As we close the 2016-2017 school year, PCSS would like to thank all parents and guardians for your support throughout the school year.  The success of our students hinges on our partnership with our families, students, and the community as a whole.  


Have a safe and wonderful summer!!

We had a wonderful first day of school today! I want to communicate some information.

They will be escorted to the cafeteria by school employees for breakfast each morning. Breakfast service will stop at 7:45 to allow students time to eat and get to class by 8:00.

Our 10 from 10 initiative has begun! Please request $10 from 10 people, so we can finish our fundraising next week for the WHOLE YEAR!  After today, Mrs. Kirby’s class is in 1st place and Mrs. Mullican and Mrs. Pecora’s class are tied for 2nd pl

Thank you for your support with school supplies, fees, and wonderful children. We look forward to seeing everyone again tomorrow! These messages will be posted on the school web site at prescottsouthelementary.com .

Dear Prescott Families,

   We are so excited to see everyone Monday.  I wanted to call and let you know all the exciting things going on the first two weeks of school. That’s right, the first two weeks! 

Our Book Fair will be open starting July 27-August 2 during the school day and Friday from 5-7 during the Back to School Carnival.  Please contact Mrs. Laura Shaver lshaver@pcsstn.com if you are able to volunteer with the book fair. She needs as much help as you can give!  (Book Fair Link)

Back to School Carnival, what? That’s right! We are having a back to school carnival with free games, balloon characters, face painting, and much, much more! The carnival will be in the PreK / Daycare loop Friday night from 5-7. If it rains, we will move the event to the gym. There will be food available for purchase.

In response to parent requests, we are going to have one fundraiser this year.  We are asking all families to ask at least 10 people for $10 by August 5.  We are calling this “10 from 10”. 100% of the money raised will go directly back to the school.  If it is successful, we will not have a tumbler sale or Doggie Dash. All checks should be made out to the Prescott PTO. Our Carnival is the party to celebrate the fundraiser.   The only prizes purchased will be lunch for the top boy and girl fundraiser who will have lunch with the Principal, and the top fundraising class will have a snow cone party. We hope this is a huge success! 

Smart Cards will be for Sale- many families look forward to these, and they sell themselves.

One last thing, if you haven’t, please go to the school web site and register your Kroger card with our school.  (Register Here)
