PRS Parents,

The PRS PTSA has many great things planned for the remainder of the year! As you know, our Polar Express was a FUN success and we would like to have more evenings like it. To do these events, we need to continue our fundraising efforts. Friday, your student received a brochure for cookie dough sales. We are asking you to look through the brochure, call Grandma or Grandpa, and see how you can help support our PTSA!


Please be sure to take the payment for anything you sell. We are accepting cash and checks- made out to "PRS PTSA".

All orders and money must be turned in Feb. 12th.

The cookie dough will be available for pickup Thursday March 3rd. YOU MUST COME TO THE SCHOOL TO PICK UP YOUR ORDERS! We will not allow any student to take the dough home on the bus. We will be sure to sure to accommodate as many families as possible with pick up times. If you have any questions, please email Summer Rice at summermouse@gmail.com


Thank you so much for your continued support of Pike Road's PTSA!

Update on Modular Classrooms

The Town Council approved the purchase of a modular building (nine pieces that are assembled to become one building). All classrooms, restrooms, and offices are under one roof, which is a plus. We anticipate having modular classrooms onsite the end of January. Our hope is that they will be ready to occupy mid-February. Community 7 and 8 will be moving to these learning spaces.
