Our mission is to create a culture of intellectual curiosity where all students have ownership over their learning and are inspired to think, innovate, and create.
News and Notes
I hope you all enjoyed special time with loved ones during this holiday season. Children at this age change emotionally and physically almost daily. This held true over the Christmas break. It has been fun having the children back and seeing how much they have grown. The New Year brought us a new learner. Dane joined us this week and it seems like he has always been a part of our family. I am looking forward to a great week!
Welcome to PRS!
We are excited to have Dane join Mrs. Allen's Learning Safari.
Dane gets acquainted with other learners during center time.
PRS VET CLINIC has a new fan
Didn't take Dane long to find our most popular center!
