Ms. Mokhs's class working in math centers.

Classroom Spotlight 🔦 Kindergarten - Mrs. Gargas

Our kindergarten students are forming a close friendship with Ms. Emery’s 3rd-grade class. The 3rd graders are wonderful role models.

Classroom Spotlight 🔦 Kindergarten - Mrs. Sanders

In Mrs. Sanders' Kindergarten class, students have been learning about different learning disabilities and learning needs. Yesterday they learned about invisible disabilities. Ms. Breanna, the guest reader, shared a story about a Polydactyl cat (a cat with 5 or more toes on each paw). Ferdinand, the cat, used his disability to help friends.

Candy Bar Fundraiser!💚🐼🍫

We are planning prizes and working on totals, but quite a few people still owe money. If this is you, please give us a call. (313) 203-1460

Reporting Absences📞

We request that parents call the Pardee Absence line at 313-203-1466 before 9:30 am when their child is absent from school. A robocall will not be sent if the parent has notified the office of their child’s absence through the Pardee absence line. Parents are encouraged to leave a message including the name of the student, the person making the call, and the reason for the absence on the absence line. The office will return calls as needed. We hope that this process will support improved communication between the school and the parents/guardians.
