October E-Newsletter

Message from Superintendent
Greetings to Pine-Richland Students, Parents & Community,
We have quickly arrived at the end of the first nine weeks of the school year. From my perspective, it seems that the seasons pass in a blink of the eye. You will soon receive a notification about the availability of grades online. It is important to note that these grades represent a significant amount of effort in the classroom, on assignments, and through a variety of classroom-based assessments. One advantage of the Home Access system for parents is the ability stay updated on academic progress at any time of the year. In addition, this tool allows students to monitor their performance.

Community Converges on Campus
Community Enjoys Crowning Moment
The PR community packed the campus for Homecoming. Congratulations to the 2015 Homecoming Queen Emefa Akwayena and first runner-up Elizabeth Profozich and second runner-up Madison Engle. Homecoming was not only a success on the football field, but for a food drive hosted by the students. 
As you know, the purpose of the Pine-Richland School District (PRSD) Discipline Code is to present standard behavioral expectations based on school board policy for all students in the district. Parents are encouraged to become familiar with the PRSD Discipline Code and to review the document with their children. While we do not comment on individual student discipline matters, the discipline code is an important document to guide consequences. Read More...
