Updated Main Office FAQs
The attached FAQ document from the main office has been updated from the one you received on the first day of school. Please refer to this document for all questions.
Homeroom Parent Volunteers Needed!
A fun way to get involved is to become a homeroom parent. Most classes have at least 2 homeroom parents, and their role is to coordinate class parties and special events, organize parent volunteers, act as a liaison to classroom parents for the teacher and the PTO, coordinate teacher appreciation gifts, and more. It's a fun job, and your child will love having you so closely involved!
The deadline to complete the form is September 6th. In the case that there are more than 2-3 volunteers for a class, a confidential lottery will determine homeroom parent selection. All selected volunteers will be notified by email by September 11th.
COMING SOON: Patriot Pride Week
Patriot Pride Week is coming September 18-22nd.
Get ready for all of those fun theme days - crazy hair, pajama, wacky Wednesday, and more!
Save the date for the culminating Fun Run (K-3) and Color Run (4-5) events on Friday September 22nd! Parents are welcome to volunteer and/or attend as spectators.
Details coming soon...stay tuned!
Family Fun Night ~ September 29th
Join us for our first Family Fun Night of the 2023-24 school year!
This popular event will feature plenty of fun, food trucks, and time to socialize with old and new PES friends!

After School Art Beat at Pocopson
Foreign Language Program Parent Volunteer Needed!
We are looking for a parent volunteer to help organize after school foreign language programs. Time commitment is minimal, and you would be partnered with an existing volunteer who could use extra help. Great opportunity to get involved!

We have a limited number of last year's yearbooks available for purchase in the main office.

FOCUS Event ~ September 20th
