Notes from Gina

Dear Peirremont Families,


This week our 5th-grade students finished up their MAP testing. We are proud of their hard work!


We are excited to see our students from Virtual Campus during a drive-through Send-off Celebration and virtual supply return next week. The event will be held on Wednesday, May 26, from 3-4 pm.


On another note, you may have received a letter from the Parkway Fine Arts Department announcing that next year's 4th-grade students will ALL learn how to play the violin at school. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the third-grade program was suspended this year. So, we are delighted our kids won't miss out on this experience. You can read the letter here for details.


Have a great weekend!

Gina

Returning School Materials Sent Home at Start of the Year

At the start of the year, teachers sent home learning materials while we were in distance learning. As we wind down for the school year, please be on the lookout for any school-issued materials still at home. For example, math manipulatives, dry erase boards or books. You can send the materials to school with your child at any time. Please contact your child's teacher with questions.

Middle School Boundary Proposal

At Pierremont we know many questions and concerns may remain. You can keep updated on district communications, view recorded webinars, and submit questions or concerns through the Parkway website here. Also never hesitate to reach out to me by phone at 314-415-6601 or email.
