Pickerington Elementary uses Talking Points to communicate with families about things going on in class, in the building, and to send reminders. Talking Points syncs with Infinite Campus so whoever is listed as priority 1 in Infinite Campus receives the Talking Points communication. Also, some families have selected to receive the communication via the Talking Points App instead of as a text message. You may want to login to Talking Points (https://app.talkingpts.org/login) to see your preferences. If you would like more than 1 parent to receive the Talking Points communications, please email me (dave_zwiebel@plsd), and I will add contacts to Talking Points.

Please fill out form if you would like to be a VIP this year.
We are excited to bring back VIPs. What is a VIP? A VIP can be a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, ect... that has a level 2 background check done through the school district. They will be trained on the photocopier, laminator, and everything that might possibly be used in the workroom. We have a VIP coordinator Natalie Matney this year. She will be organizing the VIPs with the teachers. In the past teachers have used the VIPs for getting the Scholastic flyers ready to distribute, copies, bulletin boards/hallway projects, and any number of things. We ask if you would like to VIP please fill out the google form by Aug 31, so we can get teachers assigned.
