Greetings to the Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of The Pride of School 9-

May Madness is upon us. We are continuing with our local and district wide assessments (Please review the on-line; as well as, the monthly calendars that was sent home to you for specific dates and times). There are many educational trips scheduled by your child's teacher this month. We encourage and need for you to take advantage of being a chaperone on them to enjoy the wonderful learning experience along with your child. We have started our auditions for the "Talent Show" that will be held in June. The students are extremely excited and ready to show The Pride that "They Got Talent". Please assist those who are chosen to go onto the next round with their rehearsals and practice at home. We exceeded our goal for our Pennies for Patients fundraiser. The Pride raised over $1800. We will present the check to the Leukemia Society on Friday, May 15, 2015 @ 9:30am....All are welcomed!. We need and solicit your support in making a pledge to the American Cancer Society. Your child participated in "Jump Rope for Heart" several weeks ago. They were given pledge sheets to bring home that are due back to their homeroom teacher by Friday, 5-5-15. Last year, we raised over $800 to present to the organization. Let's see how well we do this year? There is currently a fundraising effort in the name of "Jeans for Troops". We are asking for any donations that you would like to make to be sent to the Main Office.

As you have read, we are busy at The Pride. We continue to solicit your involvement by becoming an active member of the PTA....It is never too late! A reminder about your child being aligned to the YPS and The Pride dress code. Please make sure that shorts for both; girls and boys, are mid-to-knee length, no halters or revealing of undergarments should be worn to school, The boys should not wear sleeveless undershirts. As for footwear, please make sure that your child wears rubberized shoes or sandals...."Everything asked of you is align to the "Safety" of your child". Finally, this is "Teacher Appreciation Month". The PTA and Administration will celebrate our Pride Staff on Tuesday, May 19, 2015 because we want them to know how much we appreciate what they do for our "Precious Jewels" each and everyday. With that being said, take the time to send them a note or "token of love" to let them know how much you "value" them for educating your child here at The Pride. Until the June Message, Have a R.O.A.R ing Month!    

Respectfully yours,
Mrs. C. Thiam


We are excited about upcoming April events! Please be sure to post these items on your calendars.

Thank you.
