Dear Families-Read on for the News

Last Chance to Order Pumpkin Rolls!

The last day to order Pumpkin Rolls for the PPCS fundraiser is Friday, October 29. PPCS families can order Pumpkin Rolls and enjoy a delicious treat for the holidays while earning money for the school! Pumpkin Rolls are $15.00 and will be delivered the last week before Thanksgiving. Everything over cost will be donated to PPCS! Orders will be placed at the time of payment. Checks must be made out to The Wooden Spoon. Mail orders with payment to PPCS at PO Box 9511, Moscow ID 83843, or stop by the school. Thank you to a PPCS grandparent for this wonderful opportunity!!

Students Need Water Bottles

With COVID precautions, the drinking fountains are only water bottle fill stations, and we will no longer provide cups. Please make sure your student brings a water bottle daily.

Playground Update

Through mid-October we have raised $21,515 toward our $25,000 goal. Our next phase will include installing slides, a swing set and ball court. We are so grateful to all our donors!! Please help us spread the word to reach our fundraising goal!

Lunch Program Update

School meals are an important part of fueling both healthy minds and bodies. This school year's meals may look a little different, in part due to food supply and labor challenges related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency. At times, our lunch vendor may not receive expected food orders (delivery driver shortages) and have limited product availability (for example, discontinued products or not enough of a specific type of product). As a result, there may be last-minute menu changes. Know that our lunch vendor is thinking ahead to identify alternative food items that are nutritious and appealing for the students. We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we work to provide school meals in a challenging and changing environment.
