Take Your Child to Work Day is scheduled for April 27, 2017. If your child will be participating in this opportunity, please sign the permission slip below and return it to the school office no later than Wednesday, April 26, 2017. If this permission slip is on file, this day will be recorded as a fieldtrip/school absence, meaning it would not count against your child’s attendance. Please call the office if you have questions.

Take Your Child to Work Day Form


If you have not yet turned in your child's 2017-2018 enrollment, supplement, health, transportation and technology forms (students entering 3rd and 6th grade only), please fill out these forms and send this information to the school asap.

This paperwork is critical as we place students into sections for next year and plan for the upcoming school year. We need to have all enrollment paperwork returned to the office by Friday, May 5th.

If your child will not be returning to Siegrist or will be moving to the Compass area for the 2017-2018 school year, please write on the packet moving out of district or to the Compass area and have your child return the packet to their current school no later than May 5. It is important that we receive your packet for our administrators and transportation department to develop plans over the summer for the upcoming school year.

Please do not send Proof of Residency with this packet. Proof of Residency is completed separately, starting May 31, 2017.

If you have misplaced your enrollment packet and need a new one sent home, please contact our office at 858-5977.


We have extra yearbooks for sale. If you would like to purchase a yearbook, please have your child bring $20 cash or check payable to PCR3 to the office and we will give them their yearbook to take home.

Sharpen the Saw

As we approach the end of the school year, testing and end of the year events can at times add stress to our lives. It is important throughout the school year- but especially at these times- to practice Habit 7- Sharpening the Saw. Sharpening the saw means making the time to take care of ourselves. Eating right, exercising, and getting sleep are all important in maintaining physical health. Additionally, taking time to be with family, friends, and do the things that spark our passions are important to our mental health. In sharpening the saw, we are taking care of the whole person and helping others around us to do the same. Please take some time this week/weekend to spend time doing something that you love. Rest and relaxation help us to be the best we can be for ourselves and our families.

Summer School Kindergarten-8th Grade

If you missed the deadline, you can still turn in your enrollment packet. Please turn in to your child's school ASAP. Thank you!
