Parent/Teacher Communication is key!!

Conferences are coming in February, but why wait if you have a question or concern. The first point of contact is always the teacher.

Research suggests that positive communication between parents and teachers will increase student achievement.

If we do not receive a call, our office will attempt to call home or work to verify the student's absence. When your student returns, please send in a signed parent note with your child for our records.

Outdoor Recess During Winter

When weather is inclement, or the temperature is below twenty (20) degrees, recess will be held indoors. The wind chill factor is taken under consideration when determining if conditions are safe for outdoor recess. Otherwise, everyone is expected to go outside for recess. Please note: Students who do not come to school with a coat/jacket will not be permitted to go to outside for recess when the temperature drops.

General Mills Box Tops Collection Contest

It’s time to start collecting! We will be collecting General Mills Box Tops to raise money for our 5th and 6th graders at Pfeiffer. The proceeds are used by the PATS parent organization to support the many different activities and programs throughout the year. In the past, these funds have been used to purchase playground balls, storage carts, games for use during inside recess, and lots more. For each box top collected our school will receive 10 cents. At the end of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 9 weeks the 5th and 6th grade homerooms that have collected the most will receive a special treat.

Counselor's Corner

Pfeiffer counselors are making their way through the classrooms presenting guidance topics such as conflict resolution, empathy, career, stress management, social media/internet safety, and learning styles. Be sure to check in with your child to see what they are learning in these fun and exciting lessons! We encourage students and parents to reach out with any personal, social, and/or academic needs. Please feel free to contact us at anytime during school days 7:30 -3:00. As a reminder, if there is an emergency after school hours, please call The Crisis Center @ 330.452.6000, Perry Police @ 330.478.5121 or the National Suicide Hotline @ 1.800.273.TALK.
