Dear PG Parent/Guardian,

I wanted to thank everyone for the kind words on how we handled the bus situation last week. We are very grateful and so fortunate to have great staff work together like they do. Here are several announcements:


1. Variety Show takes place January 24th at 7:00 p.m. The January 25th show has a new time of 2:00 p.m. We look forward to all of the great acts!

2. January 23rd Elementary Parent Lunch Visitation - At the request of the School Board, Prairie Grove Elementary will be piloting a day for parents to eat lunch with their children in the school. If you are interested, please see the forms that are attached.

3. Junior High Homework/Test Retake Change - In order for our staff to have a better indicator of how students are performing prior to a test, for our students to be better prepared for tests, and to increase students' homework completion rate, Prairie Grove Junior High will be changing a couple of procedures.
  1. All homework must be completed prior to the end of each unit. Teachers will be posting these dates on their web sites. Students will be given a minimum of one week advance notice of an upcoming test.  
  2. Homework that is not handed in on the due date will be reduced by 50%. 
  3. Any homework that is not turned in will be posted as a zero until it has been turned in.
  4. Students may not retake a test unless they have successfully completed all of their homework prior to the unit ending.
4. Market Day orders have been extended until Monday. I've attached a flyer for your information.

We thank you for your partnership to make our learning environment stronger.

Sincerely,

Vic Wight
