Teacher Appreciation Week!

A huge "SHOUT OUT" to our Prisk teachers for their tireless dedication to our students!

Thanks to the Prisk PTA and our awesome room parents, Prisk teachers will have a nice week of acknowledgment and celebration in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week!

In addition to the ideas from PTA, students are more than welcome to put a personal touch to the week and honor their teacher in their own creative way!


Prisk Earns LBUSD's "Think Green" Program Silver Award!

Congratulations to all of us at Prisk. We have earned the LBUSD Silver Award for our ongoing efforts to keep our site Green! ​

More information will be coming in the new school year. We will continue our efforts to use less plastic, reuse materials as much as possible. Look for trash cans with posters -- one for recycling and one for landfill items -- in each and every class and office onsite.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you that helped us reach this level of the LBUSD THINK GREEN project. As we continue to work together to maintain our commitment to Earth, know that our efforts are recognized and emulated by others. THANK YOU!

Safety Reminders at Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Our PM In-Person Drop-Off and Pick-Up times are quite busy and can become frustrating if there is limited parking or traffic congestion. HOWEVER, there is NOTHING more important than the safety of all of our students and their families.

Some things that are causing safety concerns are:

  • double-parking
  • driving around a double-parked car
  • parking in red zones
  • parking in bus zones
  • speeding
  • maneuvering your vehicle abruptly when frustrated

PLEASE, PLEASE plan for the process to take about 10-minutes and don't let frustration or aggravation cause harm to our community.
