This put Pfeiffer in the top 7.8% of all buildings in the state. Great job students and staff. We are all very proud of your hard work and effort!!

Pfeiffer Wins - Ohio Middle Level Association Component Award Winner

Pfeiffer Intermediate is receiving a component award from the Ohio Middle Level Association for its work with Advisor/Advisee programming. The award is given to a school who embraces a building wide model that focuses on the relationships between students and staff. We pride ourselves at working with our students to a provide time for them to have a voice. The middle ages are such a challenging time for our kids that we felt a need to help guide them through their struggles. We recognize that it is very important to nurture the intellectual needs, as well as the social and emotional needs of our students.

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 to be used during inside recess, and lots more. For each box top collected our school will receive 10 cents.

Parent/Teacher Communication is key!!

The first point of contact is always the teacher. If you have a question regarding the content or a student's behavior in the classroom, please contact the teacher by calling the Pfeiffer office and asking for the teacher or e-mailing the teacher directly. Research suggests that positive communication between parents and teachers will increase student achievement.
