Principal’s Message 07-18-18
Hello from Prairie Knolls Middle School!
I hope that you are enjoying the summer break. We all look forward to hearing about the summer adventures of our students when they return to us in August. Until that time, I wanted to send out this first summer Principal’s Message to keep you informed about events here at PK.
First, we are VERY BUSY here at Prairie Knolls! Due to the construction at Central High School, our facility is hosting several middle school and high school summer camps throughout the balance of the summer. In addition, we are hosting the Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative Extended School Year (ESY) program during the month of July. With all of this activity, it seems as if school never ended. However, it is nice to have the presence of students in the building throughout the summer!
Secondly, if you have not yet completed your online registration for the 2018-2019 school year, please do so immediately. It is essential that all of the steps are completed (a green check mark will appear) prior to the end of July so that students can see their schedules and locker assignments for the upcoming school year.
Thirdly (and speaking of student schedules), schedules will be made available to students after the end of July. At that point, and assuming that parents have completed all steps of the online registration, students will be able to log onto Skyward to see their schedules, locker assignments and new locker combinations. We will notify all families when schedules are available.
Finally, if a student is participating in athletics, they will need to register on the 8to18 website https://prairieknolls.8to18.com/ before attending any practices. Additionally, all academic and school fees must be paid prior to paying fees for athletics. Please see the link below for directions explaining the 8to18 registration process.
Purchasing a new P.E. Uniform? Read this!
If you are purchasing a new P.E. uniform for next year, then you can use our uniform “pre-sale” option. We are moving to a new uniform for next year and you can order these now, and have them delivered to PKMS so that they are ready for pick up next school year when your child arrives. Please note: if your child has a current uniform, and it still fits them, it is not mandatory to purchase a new uniform. However, if you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, the pre-sale “window” will be closed on July 25th. Just click on the link below use access code PEDEPT1819.
After the window closes, uniforms can be purchased during the first week of school. If you have already purchased a uniform through RevTrak, we have a record of this and your child will be issued a uniform during the first week of school.
Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer! We are excited to begin our new school year and we will email you again when schedules are available.
