Message from Mr. Z
A short but exhausting week! I hope you all enjoy your weekend...just a few reminders regarding drop off and pick up procedures. Thank you to those families utilizing our Pick Up Patrol system to notify us of any changes. Those that are still unsure, please ask, we are happy to help. Just a reminder that all families driving their student to school or picking them up from school in a vehicle MUST use the parent pick up line to drop off. Students should never be dropped off in the day car/bus lane. Door A does not open until 9:05, Door L opens at 8:50am. Our staff appreciates your cooperation in following our expectations.
Our “Power Up” shirts will ONLY be available during this sale. This will be a one time sale! Represent Pick Elementary alongside our amazing staff! Ordering ends midnight, Sept. 10th and orders will be distributed at school the week of Oct. 2nd. Proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit Pickerington Elementary Staff and students. Every purchase made enters your child into a drawing for a free “Power Up” travel mug, lunch with Mr. Z or Mrs. Brown!
*Multiple colors, sizes, and gear are available
Shirt quality: These are super soft shirts...only the best for our families!
Past students and Families: Go ahead and order too! Put Mr. Z as the teacher and we will let you all know when your order has arrived!

Parents can register online here.
Please fill out form if you would like to be a VIP this year.
We are excited to bring back VIPs. What is a VIP? A VIP can be a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, ect... that has a level 2 background check done through the school district. They will be trained on the photocopier, laminator, and everything that might possibly be used in the workroom. We have a VIP coordinator Natalie Matney this year. She will be organizing the VIPs with the teachers. In the past teachers have used the VIPs for getting the Scholastic flyers ready to distribute, copies, bulletin boards/hallway projects, and any number of things. We ask if you would like to VIP please fill out the google form by Aug 31, so we can get teachers assigned.
Restaurant Night 🍕
Our first restaurant night of the year is fast approaching! Dinner for September 12th is already decided! Grab some Gionino's and help support Pickerington Elementary PTO!
