*** If your child will not attend PCES in 2017-18, you will be removed from the email distribution list in July.

Only a few emails will be sent prior to that time.***

Summer Office Hours are Monday-Friday from 8:00-4:30. The school office will be closed on July 4.

We Need a Teacher Assistant and a Computer Assistant!

Pearre Creek Elementary needs two important people to come work with us! We need a teacher assistant who helps the teachers prepare materials, supervises the cafeteria for about 1 1/2 hours a day, and monitors classes when teachers are in meetings. We also need someone to facilitate students’ use of the computer lab. Teachers will stay with their students as each class attends computer class about once a week. Days and times for both positions are Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:00.

If you or someone you know is interested in either of these positions, please email the principal, Stephanie Goff, at stephanie.goff@wcs.edu.

We Have New Start and End Times for 2017-18!

We will begin school a little later in the day this coming school year. Our instructional day will take place from 8:50 AM – 3:50 PM.

We will unlock our doors at 8:30 AM and students will go to the cafeteria (grades 3-5) or gym (grades K-2). Students will go to class at 8:40 AM. Instruction begins at 8:50 AM sharp! All students need to be in the building by 8:47 AM or they will be tardy and parents will need to sign them at the front office. In effect, all times are 15 minutes later than in the past.

We will begin dismissal at 3:45 PM. We will not release students for early dismissal after 3:15 PM in order to ensure a safe, orderly dismissal where everyone goes home the right way and with the right person.
