A Message From Mrs. Fike


State Testing:

We are still into our state testing this month. Here are just a few reminders to help support your child with the upcoming testing days.

1. Make sure that your child is on time for school on testing days.

2. If your child is ill, please keep him/her home.

3. Please make sure that your child is getting plenty of sleep prior to the testing days.

4. It is important that all students be at school all day. Make sure that appointments are scheduled around testing times.

We know that our PSE students will do their best each and every day!

The week of May 2nd-May 6th is Staff Appreciation Week. This is a week that we get to celebrate our PSE staff for all of their hard work that they do each and every day! Thank you PSE staff for all that you do! We are lucky to have you!
