Pathfinder Art Show

Saturday, December 9th from 8:00 to 11:00 a.m.

Pathfinder Gym

The students at Pathfinder have come together to create artwork for a spectacular Art Show Celebration. Every student will have their own masterpiece framed and on display. This is over 600 pieces of artwork on display! During the Art Show, families will have the opportunity to purchase the framed artwork for $23.00 and take it home that day. Payments can be made with cash or check. Your child's framed artwork would make a great holiday gift! Make plans to eat some pancakes, listen to great music, and view/purchase awesome art work! If you cannot attend this event, please contact Mrs. Jamison, Art teacher, for additional information.

Winter Weather/School Closing Planning and Notification

With the recent drop in temperatures, it is time to begin planning for winter weather!

In the event of school cancellation, PCR-3 will get that information out as early as possible through automated phone calls and text messages, the District website, Facebook, Twitter, the District Hotline (816-858-2752), and local media.

Please visit the Winter Weather Information page on the Parents Tab of the district website for information regarding recess and clothing considerations (there will be no outdoor recess when the wind chill is at 20 degrees or below), cancellations, how the district will notify families, and Y Club information.

Parents: If you haven't yet opted in to receive texts and wish do so, please text the word "YES" to 67587.

Holiday Goals for the Family

The first semester of school our students and staff have been learning, living, and using the 7 Habits, as we continue to implement the Leader In Me at Pathfinder Elementary. During the winter break, we encourage you to find ways in which your family can live the 7 Habits as you go about celebrating with family and friends.

Download the worksheet below by clicking here. This is a great tool to use in setting some holiday goals with your family!
