The PPS School Improvement Bond work was completed in a number of areas throughout the main building, annex and portables this summer. This included seismic strengthening and improved accessibility to bathrooms and the entrance to our portables. In addition, we are excited to announce that two science labs have been built. The Installation of an elevator is still under construction. This will continue for several more months and we are working closely with contractors and district staff to develop plans, so that there will be minimal impact on instruction and access to the building. Ongoing updates will be posted here and noted in our school newsletter.

Public Service Announcement filmed at Beach
Univision joins PPS in promoting early literacy
Univision created and is now airing a public service announcement talking about the importance of reading daily with children and using the school or local library as a resource.
Superintendent put what she called "a stake in the ground" this year to focus schools and the community on early literacy and the goal that all current kindergarteners are reading well by the end of third grade.
"Early literacy is a powerful predictor of future success in school and life," said Superintendent Carole Smith. "We thank Univision for helping to share this important message with families."
