Kids Heart Challenge Prizes

Any students that have earned Kids Heart Challenge prizes from registering or fundraising can swing by the school between 2:00 -2:30 on Wednesday, Jan. 27th to pick up their prizes. Look for Mrs. Varga wearing her red Kids Heart Challenge shirt near the MPR. Please have your child's name and teacher written on a piece of paper to hold up. Any prizes earned after Friday, Jan. 22nd will be distributed at the next pick-up day (date and time TBD) or will be passed out when students return on campus.

Great Kindness Challenge - Jan. 25th -29th

Join over 15 million students nationwide to spread kindness within your home or community. Teachers will be passing out checklists (either paper or digital) so that students can explore new ways to show others how much they care. Students are encouraged to check off as many items of the list as they can, while still maintaining health and safety protocols. *Please note: some teachers may delay this event in their classrooms until they return on-campus.

The PUSD transfer window is opening soon!!! Transfer requests for students who live in the Poway Unified School District boundaries and who would like to attend a school other than their school of residence will be accepted starting on February 1 at 8 am. This includes incoming siblings of current students. Transfer requests can be made on the Poway Unified School District website at www.powayusd.com. The transfer window closes on March 31 at 5 pm.


If you have an incoming transitional kindergarten, kindergarten or new student, please submit a transfer during the open window, even if your child is not yet enrolled.
