News from Principal Lamothe
👋 Hello PRS Wizard 👋
It was so nice to meet so many of you at our Meet & Greet we had on Thursday, September 1st. The hallways were filled with our young students excited to see their new classrooms as well as visit their old ones. Their smiling families lit up the hallways and seemed like most were ready to get back into school. It was great to hear the hallways filled with the sounds of all those little footsteps in our hallways and voices of excitement and laughter.
We can't wait to see 1st - 5th grade on Tuesday, September 5th and Kindergarten on Thursday, September 7th. Take in the last few days of sunshine, be safe and enjoy your holiday weekend.
