Principal's Message

PRMS Families,


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!


We are excited to have all three grade levels on campus tomorrow for the official start of the 2022-23 school year!


We threw a lot of information at the students last week and we hope they had fun learning about their classmates and our staff. This week we will continue to learn about one another and familiarize our students with classroom and building expectations.


Thank You, to everyone that was able to make it to Open House last week, it was great to have such a positive turnout! As stated in our Open House presentation, I have included a copy of our cell phone policy below. The students heard this message last week from me as well and did an amazing job listening, understanding and adhering to the policy. Thank you for your support!!


Please be sure to review the information outlined below and feel free to reach out with any questions.


GO KNIGHTS!


Brad Watkins, Principal

ProgressBook

ProgressBook is a website for viewing your child’s schedule, grades, completed/missing assignments, and report cards. It is vital for each parent and student to have an account. Report cards will not be sent home, so the only way to access report cards is through ProgressBook.


If you or your child haven’t already set up a ProgressBook account here is the link to get you started https://parentaccess.swoca.net. You will need a registration key provided by the school in order to sign up. Call the main office at (513) 851-2400 and one of the secretaries will be able to provide you with your registration key. You may also email them at tlonaker@nwlsd.org or jgoshdigian@nwlsd.org.

Live School

We will be using LiveSchool again this year for our Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) at PRMS. Students will be able to gain positive points for their outstanding behavior during the school day. Students can also earn negative points if they are not displaying appropriate behavior during the school day. With these points students can cash them out for different prizes and rewards.


As parents you can create an account in LiveSchool that will show you how your student is doing each day. You will also get a weekly recap each Friday evening. Students will be coming home with online access codes parents and guardians can use to create an account.


Students are able to also see their daily points on their account by signing in through Clever.

PaySchools

PaySchools is the online website used for paying student fees, loading snack money to your child's lunch account, or paying sports fees for pay to play. PRMS is a NO CASH or CHECK school, so in order to pay for any of the above you must create a PaySchools account and use a debit or credit card. The PRMS cafeteria also doesn't accept any cash, so in order for your child to purchase snacks or extras at lunch they must have money loaded on their PaySchools account.
