Thank you to Benjamen for spreading kindness with chalk. And thank you to all the first-grade families for the inspirational notes drawn on our sidewalk. It makes everyone smile. If you would like to join in and help spread kindness, Bejamen's family has left chalk at the front door of the school for others to use.

PPCS and Bloom: "Healthy at Home" + pay it forward!
Moscow restaurant "Bloom" just launched a brand new "Healthy at Home" prepared meal service, which includes a pay it forward incentive.
Customers can buy a “Healthy at Home” meal, select “Feed a Family” and then choose Palouse Prairie Charter School as the recipient. Bloom will match it with a meal for a family in need at our school. Bloom will deliver the donated meals to PPCS on Fridays or Monday, to be given to families in our school community experiencing food insecurity.
The meals are healthy, made from scratch, and require minimal effort for a nice dinner. If you would like to participate in this program, just order your meal online, select the "Healthy at Home" program, and be sure to designate PPCS as your school.
