NEWLY ELECTED PTO

Congratulations to the newly elected PTO board at this week’s Curriculum night! Our new officers are: President – Jennifer Santos, Vice President – Jennifer Banton, Treasurer – Liz Rodriguez, and Secretary – Rosalynd Ridgell. We are very excited to have you on board!

NEW TRAFFIC PATTERN STARTS MONDAY MORNING

To improve safety for our students and help move the car lines along, we will start a “eight car” drop off Monday morning for car riders. The first four (4) cars in each car line will exit their children at the same time. Once the children are clear, the next four cars in each line will pull up. Parents: please make sure your students have all items in-hand and are prepared to exit the vehicle immediately. When you exit,  all cars turning right onto Ramsey Street/401 South will need to be in the right lane. All cars turning left onto Ramsey Street/401 North will need to be in the left lane. Starting Monday, you will not be able to cross over the yellow line once you get to the flag pole. You will notice the front parking has been relined and striped to help with the new flow of traffic. Car riders may not be dropped off in the back parking lot.

CALENDAR

  • Sunday, October 15 – Please complete the 5 minute Parent Survey online by today. Our school is required to have 200 parent responses and only 107 have participated. The link is available on the PFMS webpage. It’s helpful to have your child present for some of the questions.
