Gardening

The gardening classes have been researching helpful and harmful insects. We have been making observations about the types and amounts of insects in our garden. We have spent time transporting harmful insects from our garden to other parts of the school. We understand the importance of keeping the food webs balanced. Thanks so much to our bug catchers!

Anti-Bullying Parade

For the grand finale of our "Shedding Light on the Darkness of Bullying" campaign, PKMS students, parents, and staff will participate in a Kindness Parade this coming Friday at 2:15 pm. Parents who are participating will park in the upper carline lot. All other parents who are waiting on carline, will be directed to line up on the track.

Any parent wishing to watch the parade are welcome to park on the track and walk up the back stairs to the sidewalk. This will provide a great view of our student groups.
