Let us take the stress out of back to school supply shopping. It's convenient and easy! All you do is order the kit online and SHAZAM! It's ready and waiting for you at open house.

Rising Kindergarten - 4th Graders

Teachers have already prepared the classroom supply lists for next year. Take a look!

Rising 5th Graders

If you have a rising 5th grader, teacher assignments will be given on the last day of school. Our 5th grade teachers' supply lists differ from team to team. Once your child finds out which teacher they are assigned to, your teacher specific school supply kits will be available. Orders will be due by June 5th.

* All students will receive their teacher assignment for the 2022-23 school year on the last day of school.

* Supply Kit informational flyers were sent home the week of 5/9. Additional copies can be found at


5th Graders Leave Behind A Gift

At the closing of each school year, it's tradition for our 5th graders to give a gift back to the school. This year the 5th grade class has gifted a Dwarf Magnolia tree. With the help of Mr. Ittner, it has been planted on one of the grassy islands in the parking lot. In addition to the tree, students have completed a questionnaire of things they currently enjoy and a message they would like to send to themselves as a senior in high school. These questionnaires are going to be placed into a time capsule and buried in the area around the tree. The pictured engraved bricks will mark the location. The bricks read, "PMES 5th Grade Class of 2022 gifted this tree back to where their roots began", and a second brick reads, "In 2029 we will return to dig up a time capsule we buried with this tree".

We encourage our current 5th grade students to return every so often to take a picture of themselves and this special tree, so we may watch them grow together over the next 7 years. During the end of their senior year, the time capsule will be retrieved and the messages they wrote will be returned to them.

We would like to thank Kilpatrick's Nursery, who so graciously donated this beautiful tree to us. PTA Chair, Heather Troy, for assisting in securing this amazing donation. And PTA Chair, Jessica Petersen, for working tirelessly behind the scenes to make the end of the 5th graders' year so special. We appreciate YOU!
