Don't Forget It's tonight - Parent Program on Building Resiliency in your Children

Attention parents and adults in the Perry community: Pfeiffer Intermediate School is hosting a special program titled “Increasing Developmental Assets and Building Resiliency in Children.” The program, which will be held at Pfeiffer on February 4th at 6 p.m., is for any adult who wishes to focus on the strengths of children and nurture a path to thriving for all.


The program is presented by Missy McClain from Akron Children’s Hospital and sponsored by the Pfeiffer Parents Assisting Teachers and Students (P.A.T.S). Light refreshments will be provided by P.A.T.S.

February Conferences are Live On-Line!!

Reminder that conferences are available online and will end on Sunday, Feb 10th at 11:00 P.M. Parent/Teacher conferences are Tuesday, February 12th and Thursday, February 14th from 5:00-8:00 pm

Social Media Awareness Night April 8th!!!

The next parent night will be April 8th at 6:00 P.M. in the Pfeiffer gymnasium. We will once again be hosting Missy McLain from Akron Children's Hospital. Missy will be talking about the pressures of social media. Students feel such a need to be active in the social media world. The need for "likes" on-line does affect their self-esteem. Social Media has a way about presenting the best or worst in everyone. Save the date and join us!

Parent/Teacher Communication is key!!

Conferences are coming in February, but why wait if you have a question or concern. The first point of contact is always the teacher. If you have a question regarding the content or a student's behavior in the classroom, please contact the teacher by calling the Pfeiffer office and asking for the teacher or e-mailing the teacher directly. Research suggests that positive communication between parents and teachers will increase student achievement.

General Mills Box Tops Collection Contest

It’s time to start collecting! We will be collecting General Mills Box Tops to raise money for our 5th and 6th graders at Pfeiffer. The proceeds are used by the PATS parent organization to support the many different activities and programs throughout the year. In the past, these funds have been used to purchase playground balls, storage carts, games for use during inside recess, and lots more. For each box top collected our school will receive 10 cents. At the end of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 9 weeks the 5th and 6th grade homerooms that have collected the most will receive a special treat.

Counselor's Corner

Pfeiffer counselors are making their way through the classrooms presenting guidance topics such as conflict resolution, empathy, career, stress management, social media/internet safety, and learning styles. Be sure to check in with your child to see what they are learning in these fun and exciting lessons! We encourage students and parents to reach out with any personal, social, and/or academic needs.
