Panther Pride


End of the Year Events:

We have so many fun events happening at school over the next two weeks. Here is a preview of what is planned:

Kindergarten Sneak Peek- Monday, May 23rd

We are so excited to welcome our newest Panthers to Prospect. If you are a new family or have never checked in with your license at the office, please arrive early to check in. Once you arrive, we will take your child's picture and then they will go to the Kindergarten room while parents will be in the library for a presentation.

  • AM/PM Kindergarten students will attend in the morning for their field trip. Once they return from their field trip, they will have a practice run eating in the lunchroom to prepare for next year.

Dr. Brown and Ms. Santini Visit 5th Grade- Monday, May 23rd

Dr. Brown, CHMS Principal, and Ms. Santini, CHMS Social Worker, visit 5th grade classrooms to welcome students and give them a sneak peek about next year.

Step-Up Day- Wednesday, May 25th

Students in Kindergarten-4th grade will participate in our annual step-up day on Wednesday. All students will get a 'sneak peek' at the upcoming grade level and spend 20 minutes with each teacher.

Dash N' Field Day-Thursday, May 26th

(Both AM/PM Kindergarten students attend in the AM.)

We are so excited to have our Field Day Extravaganza! This has been in the making since 2020, but had to be put on hold due to Covid. Students will participate in the Dash (make-up from Dash N' Bash) and then participate in 8 different rotations throughout the entire day. There will be relay races, field games, bounce houses, rock painting for the garden, music station with Boomwhackers, Stem activities, story time, and Spanish dancing. We will end this fabulous day with the winners of the Dash N' Bash throwing pies in staff's faces. Your child will definitely come home exhausted!

Please have your child bring a beach towel as we will be eating lunch outside (weather permitting). Also, please make sure they have a water bottle and apply sun screen before coming to school.

Thank you to all who have signed up for this event! If you would like to volunteer, please sign-up as there are still a few spots available.

Tuesday, May 31st- 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony and Clap Out, 1:45

We are so excited to have our 5th grade promotion ceremony in person this year. We will begin right at 1:45, so we can end the day with our 5th grade school clap-out. (2 adult family members per child).

Wednesday, June 1st
