Principal Message

Happy Monday, Pershing Families!

As we start this week, parents will be able to view student progress reports on the Parent Portal ( To make access easier, we will also be sending them home on paper on Wednesday. Last week we reached the middle of the school year and this week we hit the 100th day of school! As you review your child's progress, if you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your child's teacher by email, a message through the office, or by requesting a meeting appointment on Zoom.

Thank you to the many families who quickly returned the SJUSD Winter 2022 Survey that was sent home last week. If you prefer to give our feedback online, please go to:

Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership!
