Parents, please be sure to update your Emergency Information and Emergency Contacts on the Parent Portal: Please go to https://sis.sanjuan.edu/parentportal and update your phone numbers and any emergency contacts. We have noticed that families who registered their children over the past two years sometimes have incomplete information because of the online enrollment process. Please make it a priority to check through your child's emergency contact information this week. For instructions, visit: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TiQhc1xb52KM3U5N9dwDlFaLaaTqLe6M/view
Last Wednesday we had a great meeting with our new PTO Executive Board. Many ideas were shared to continue the great work our amazing parents have done supporting Pershing Elementary students, staff, and families over the years and through the pandemic. Please consider making a commitment to the Pershing PTO tonight by purchasing a Family Membership online! Go to: https://www.pershingpto.com/product/family-membership/
Membership is about $10 per family.
