Enrollment Packets

Enrollment Packets for next school year were emailed out on May 25. Enrollment packets must be filled out for each student every year.

The completed enrollment packets are due by June 8, digitally or in hard copy form. If you need a hard copy mailed to you, please contact the office at 208-882-3684 or office@palouseprairieschool.org. Thank you.

Run the Palouse

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the students and families who donated to our fun run! This year we raised $4,000 from business sponsors and over $6,000 from our PPCS families! This money will fund our Adventure Fridays program, where our students will take part in activities like snowshoeing, skiing and rock climbing!

The final part of the run is different this year. In order to maintain social distancing, families will not gather as a school community, as we usually do. Instead, the students will run the last 1.2 miles of the logging marathon at school on June 8th, as part of their school day. Even though parents won't be present at the run, we would love your help to decorate the racecourse at PPCS and to bring snacks. Please sign up for these tasks at the link below.


Snacks can be delivered to PPCS on June 8th between 8 and 9 am.

Dear PPCS Families and Friends,

PPCS Book Fair at Book People

This semester the book fair will be online and in the Book People of Moscow store. Order any item from Book People of Moscow, tell the store that you are supporting the Palouse Prairie Book Fair, and your money will not only support a local business but will also support our school! The book fair will run to the end of school. You can see teachers' wish lists for their classes here: https://www.bookpeopleofmoscow.com/ppcs-book-fair

Wild at Art Bread and Bowls Project

Beginning in early March, Moscow Wild at Art launched its Bread and Bowls project. 500 ceramic bowls hand-painted by local community members were delivered to families receiving food donated by Bloom Cafe, Oak on Main, the Moscow Food Bank, Pullman Child Welfare, and Family Promise of the Palouse. We are happy to report that we have decided to distribute an additional 500 bowls in our communities. But we need the support of donors to help make this possible. PPCS middle students will be participating in painting some of the bowls that will be given out in our community through area restaurants, food banks, and other community organizations.

If you would like to donate to the Bread and Bowls Project or would like more information, please contact Wild at Art at getwildmoscow@gmail.com or call them at 208.301.2768. Donations are $10 per bowl.
