The application is a fillable PDF. Please download a copy for each prospective student in your family, save it with your child's information, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you prefer, you can complete by hand and mail it or drop it off at the school. Please call 882-3684 with questions.
Student Supply Donation
PPCS asks for a school supply donation between $30 and $50 per child, towards the purchase of school supplies. We ask for this donation instead of having families shop for school supply items as we recognize that often shopping for school supplies is burdensome on families. Please submit checks along with enrollment paperwork so the school might be able to purchase materials prior to the students' first day of class. Make checks payable to Palouse Prairie Charter School or PPCS. *If the purchase of these supplies creates a hardship for your family, please contact the school Director.
