Please Help Us Protect Our Soccer Fields

Parents of Pearre Creek have donated thousands of dollars and Southern Land and other organizations have donated many materials and man hours to re-sod and beautify the PCES soccer fields. Please help us to maintain them by not allowing cleats to be worn on the fields. We also ask soccer coaches to follow the same usage schedule at all Williamson County Parks and Rec fields — if they are closed for weather or to recover from weather, please refrain from using the Pearre Creek field. These two items will be SO helpful in field maintenance.

TCAP Testing for 2016-17- Please Have Your Child Present- Especially on the First Day, APRIL 18!

This school year, students in grades 3-5 will take the TCAP test. The test will be administered on paper, but will involve several formats, beginning with a writing test on April 18. The Reading and Writing Tests are the only ones that will be very difficult to make up! Students must complete tests in order, and the Writing Test is sent to the state department of education on Friday, April 21. If a student misses the Writing Test on that Tuesday, April 18, it is very likely they will miss part of the Reading tests. The complete schedule is found below under “Important Dates” and will be spread over three weeks.

Thank you in advance for helping with a good night’s sleep, a good breakfast, and good attendance for all our students so they can really show what they know and SHINE!

From Officer Sho: Please Look for Lost and Found Items

Spring Cleaning at Pearre Creek from Officer Sho:

Are your kiddos missing a jacket, sweatshirt, lunch box? Our lost and found has grown with the school year. There is a large collection of jackets, shirts, gloves, hats, lunch boxes, bike helmet, water bottles, and miscellaneous items. In an attempt to “clean house”,  I have organized these items by gender and type. During arrival and dismissal, I will have the lost and found outside by the walker/biker location. Please come by and  look through the items. I will do this all next week. Spring break is a week away, and I hope to reduce our winter clutter.
