Visitors meet students at Evergreen Elementary during a Focus on Education tour on Friday, Nov. 18, 2022.

We want to give a big THANK YOU to all the community members who celebrated American Education Week with PSD at our schools. 

Many of you joined Artondale, Pioneer, Swift Water, and Evergreen elementary school students and educators to learn about day-to-day activities, and see our newly constructed buildings. The students enjoyed showing off their classrooms, and visitors enjoyed exploring flex spaces, seeing student art, and witnessing learning in action.

Welcome to our Transitional Kindergarten students!

Five of our elementary schools were greeted with happy new faces as the first day of Transitional Kindergarten started.

Our youngest students met new friends, enjoyed fun activities, and began learning how to succeed in the classroom as a part of this preschool program. 

Transitional kindergarten is a free program for children who qualify that focuses on academics, social-emotional skills, and good learning habits - all to help empower them when they begin kindergarten. 

Transitional Kindergarten is offered at Discovery, Evergreen, Harbor Heights, Minter Creek, and Voyager elementary schools.

Next week, we are holding elementary and middle school parent-teacher conferences. This is a good time to talk with your child’s teacher if you think your child is experiencing reading difficulties.
