Love Each Other, Learn Together, Lead the Way

Tavia's Thoughts

My thoughts... It was a long, tiring week, but we MADE IT! We made it through together! I know that Rachel and I got a little stressed there as we started the week, but we just wanted to do things right and have testing go well for our students. With that being said.... I can't thank EVERYBODY enough for the team we were during testing. I really appreciate all the accommodators being on your "A" game and doing the best job you could do, the flexibility with the schedule changes, the teachers pumping up the students, the younger grades providing encouragment each day, the support of the colors days, and EVERYTHING else that EVERYONE did to make sure we had a successful, stress free testing environment. Thank you so very much. We still have one more day to go, so let's continue the support for our 5th grade team. Monday is Let's Get It Green Day. It's a Green Out. Let's help them finish strong. #Watchuswork #TeamPSE


As always....Let's continue to love each other, learn together, and lead the way.

Jackies' Friendly FRC Facts


I first want thank every teacher, administrator, staff person, student, parent and volunteer that showed us love and appreciation during this past week! I have been thoroughly blessed and overwhelmed with all of the expressions of gratitude. It’s amazing to come to a place like PSE each and every day! I certainly don’t take this environment and culture for granted! PSE is a special place!


We are closing in on the final days of school, which means many of our parents and students will be looking for ways to fill-up their summer calendars! I have great news, PSE will be providing some fun activities on-site this year! I am excited to say that we plan to offer multiple fun-filled and educational activities for our students to get involved in. I will be sending home the summer program schedule within the week. Please notify me if you have parents with specific requests, need assistance, or just have questions. I also look forward to having the Shelby County Public Library coming this week to provide information about the Summer Reading Program. We certainly want our kiddos to stay sharp during the break!


Finally, the Summer Feeding Program schedule has also been confirmed. I will be sending home the details about the breakfast, lunch and dinner meals that are provided to kids up to 18 years old. Painted Stone is not an open feeding site, however, the other various locations include places that our families should be able to access.
