Very proud of our Girls On The Run Teams. As part of their program, the girls held a fundraiser to raise money for Bronson's Children's Hospital. They raised $520!
Due to the popularity of the PPPS Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program, families are encouraged to enroll children as soon as possible for this fall! At this time, the 4-year-old classroom is full, but there's still time to add your child's name to a waiting list. Several spots are still open for the 3-year-old class, and when that class is full, another waiting list will be started. Currently, space is available in the 2 1/2 - to 3-year-old class and the preschool-readiness room, but these are also filling quickly. For more information, please contact the ECE Director: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're looking for an exciting new adventure for your 5 to 12-year-old child this summer, there are a limited number of spots open in the all-new PPPS BASE Summer Camp! Registration forms are available at the Early Elementary, the Later Elementary and the Cedar Street Campus. Registration forms and camp fees should be returned to the Cedar Street Campus and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. For questions, email Lacey Jackson at email@example.com
