News from Principal Lamothe
Hello PRS Wizards,
There have been some close calls that have been reported to me and I want to make sure every child is safe. If your child bikes to school, again, please talk to them about bike safety and it would be helpful if they have a bell on their bike to warn pedestrians that they’re coming up from the behind so the pedestrians can move to the side for them. Much Appreciated!!!

🎨🖍️ Hingham Summer Art Contest 🖍️🎨
Please click the link above to go over the tools Mrs. St. Laurence has taught this year. Some students need a refresher on some of the tools which Mrs. St. Laurence is doing from now to the end of the school year but having these tools used at home or discussed would help continue to build the strong relationship we already have between home and school.
Please check your child(ren)'s Schoolcafe.com account to add to or pay off the balance.
Please check your child's lunch balance many have outstanding balances.
Hingham Unity Council Announcement 🏳️🌈🇺🇸🇺🇳
Why is it important to Celebrate Juneteenth? – Call for Student Submissions
In connection with this event, we are inviting all students in grades Pre K-12 who live and/or attend school in Hingham to share their views on the theme: Why is it important to celebrate Juneteenth? Students are invited to participate in a competition where they can express why we as a community should be commemorating this event through a work of visual or performance art, an essay or other written work. Students are invited to submit an essay, poem, a piece of visual art (drawing, painting, sculpture – any medium of expression is welcome!), a video or original song or other performance to the Juneteenth committee.
Submissions are due Monday, June 5th.
There will be a winner from grades Pre K-2, one from grades 3-6 and one from 7-12. Each will receive a $50 gift card and the winning submission from each group will be showcased at the HUC’s Juneteenth celebration on Monday June 19th from 3-5 pm at the Hingham Bathing Beach.
