News from Principal Lamothe
Hello PRS Wizards!
Thanks to the PTO Voyagers classes have begun and there is so much excitement and buzz around them. Some new offering this time around which only helps build our students to be well rounded in many different areas and to participate in things they may not normally get to participate in during school.
This week MCAS began and our 4th graders worked extremely hard and stayed laser focused. Smith and myself are so proud of them for persevering through what the students say was "tough" but they kept working. 1st grade was also able to work on garden planting potatoes which they were having so much fun i the garden.
