Good Evening families!

This year PRSD has a goal to improve student attendance. If your family does not turn in enough satisfactory work samples or they have missing attendance days, your Educational Advisor will reach out weekly by phone or email to see how things are going and if there is anything we can do to support you.  If you have a successful 20 day meeting without missing assignments or attendance, your family is exited from this attendance intervention. We will continue to have monthly treats for students who turn in all logs and satisfactory work samples on time. Next month are (nut free) chocolate chip cookies). Smaller Oreo cookies will be offered to siblings.

Reminder that students may be dropped off at 8:55 and can walk directly to class. Students should not be dropped off any earlier or head out to the playground unless they are supervised by parents. Pick up is at 12pm. Students who are not picked up will be walked up to the office at 12:05 to wait for their ride to pick them up.

Remember to email Sarah at [email protected] a few days before a kiddos’ birthday if you want to send in treats so I can check for food allergies. Nuts are never allowed, but some individual classes have food allergies that I also monitor closely. Thanks for keeping our students safe. We also strongly encourage healthier treats if possible as some families closely monitor their kiddos’ sugar and food dye intake.

We have lots of people who have signed up to bring in their kiddos for Trick or Treating, lots of kiddos who will already be there that day, and not enough people signed up to bring in and hand out treats. If you have not already done so, please sign up to bring something in to hand out that day (it can be healthy, sweet, a toy, whatever). If we do not have enough people to hand out some goodies, we need to cancel the event. Thanks so much!


Arete Gear

We will be having a two week campaign for Fancloth which is the company we use for a bigger variety of School Spirit Wear. This year they adde

d more items for smaller children.The campaign is live Monday, September 26- Monday, October 10. This is not a fundraiser for us, just a way to get some cool items. We will send home catalogs this week, but there are more items shown online. 


We also will be once again offering our red Arete T shirts $10 and sweatshirts $25 for order soon and will be adding Arete bags this year. That is a fundraiser sponsored by an Arete family and they donate 50% of the proceeds back to Arete. Look for those details soon!

Fall Field Trips 2022

We have had 6/15 parents who have paid and the deadline is next Friday, September 30 at 12pm. If you have not paid by then, you and your child’s names will both be dropped from the field trip!

B Street Theatre Field Trip Chaperone Payment- Reminder that all payments for parents and guests four and older are due no later than Friday, September 30. If you do not pay by that date, we will not remind you, we will delete you and your child's sign ups. You need to pay $13 each (Arete pays for Arete students out of extra funds not used last year). Please pay in the Arete office with exact cash, check made to PRSD, or at Mealtime$20 minimum). We pre-pay for all Arete students so if you need to cancel with less than a week's notice, you will need to reimburse Arete for the field trip fee for your child. 


Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school as we have several students with severe nut allergies. Kiddos may enjoy nut free granola bars and spreads on their sandwiches and all the nut free favorites when away from Arete. Thanks!
