Petrova News

Happy 2020! We are thrilled to have had such a wonderful start to the school year. New curriculum, more after school programs than ever before, a strong, involved, parent's club, and over 150 'Pawsome Awards' have already been earned by our students for strong character. We are proud of our students, staff, and family involvement. Here's to a great 2020!

Here are some reminders as we start the new year. Please label all winter clothing items! The lost and found continues to build with lost items such as hats, mittens, and snow pants. If your child is missing anything, please encourage them to check the lost and found.

In addition, please help your student to bring all snow gear items to school everyday! They will need them to play in the AM before school, and again at recess.

Thank you!

Petrova Parent's Club

The Petrova Parent's Club is busy sponsoring fun and engaging activities for our school. Before holiday break, the Parent's Club sponsored a holiday movie, treat, and ornament gift for each student. Thank you to the volunteers for helping to supervise the movie.

Our next Parent's Club meeting is January 9th from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the MS Library. We are looking for more volunteers! Come to one meeting, come to every meeting, you are welcome anytime! Please enter through door #3 or #10. We hope to see you there as we plan and design our winter carnival float. Petrova won 1st place last year for Overall Best and School Float....let's make this another great year of fun and creativity!

Our next Coffee Cart is January 10th. We are requesting that 3rd grade families help to donate to this month's cart. You can do that on the following site:
