Please take five minutes to give the Board your perspective on how this year has gone for your child(ren). You might remember the questions from a similar mid-year survey, but answering again (and especially providing constructive follow-up comments) helps us track changes and identify areas of progress or concern. Find the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/D9RKBBM

Gallery Night: May 2 from 6-7 pm
Gallery Night is a school-wide event where families, community members and school partners act as an authentic audience. The purpose is to learn more about the work of the students, the school as a whole, and honor student learning. We begin by gathering together in the multi-purpose room. Families then travel through the classrooms to view all the work of our students.
8th Grade Graduation and Final Word Passage Presentation: May 2 from 7:15-9:00 pm at PPCS
The graduating 8th grade class will be conducting a Final Word Presentation in the multi-purpose room following Gallery Night. Students craft a narrative of significant personal growth during their time at Palouse Prairie and their readiness to move into the next phase of their education. Individuals that have had an impact on the students’ lives will have a chance to speak about the students’ character and personal growth. If you plan on attending, please make sure all children are seated and following expectations during this time.
