A Message from Ms. Bruhn, Principal

Well we have made it to the last parent newsletter of the school year. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your partnership this year. Our students have shown tremendous growth in academics. We have met most of our Campus Improvement Goals targeting reading, math, discipline and targeted intervention. I am so proud of the work our staff and students have put in to achieve these results.

We watched the students in the PGE talent show this morning and there were wonderful performances. We have some amazing talent at PGE!

We have a new fence...Surprise! We knew we were getting a fence to increase safety and security but wasn't aware it would be this week. The administration has no input on where the fence is placed. We will communicate how to access our playground during the summer and evening hours. For now, we are still waiting on gates. Stay tuned for more information...

Our end of year celebrations are next week, please see the schedules below. Students will receive awards and have an opportunity for pictures to celebrate their year.

We will have early release on Thursday, May 25th at 12:10.
