PSE Principal's Corner -

February 2024

Dear PSE Families, 

We have loved having our Eagle Leaders back in the building! Staff have been working hard to review expectations with students upon returning from break and jumping back into curriculum and learning. 

Please remember that if your child(ren) walk to school, supervision starts outside the building at 8:05 a.m. Please also make sure to remind your child(ren) to walk on the sidewalks or near them to keep safe as well. We want to make sure all of our Eagle Leaders are safe and we appreciate your help with this. 

We have to be prepared for inclement weather this time of year. You should have received packets for Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI) Days at conferences. If you did not, please reach out to your child(ren)’s teacher(s). Remember, you can always find all of the information at Download the FZ app. It’s free. There is no need to create a log-in or password. Use this video to help you set up notifications. That way you have a back-up for getting important notifications from the district and the schools you subscribe to.

Leader In Me Update: This month we are focusing on Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood.
