Locker Clean-out Day this Wednesday, 6/05.
With the school year winding down, our grade level teams will use the TASK time this coming Wednesday to clean out lockers. We remind students that school lockers are to be cleaned of any tape, stickers, or other items that would impede the annual cleaning process of our PKMS Custodial staff. Students are encouraged to remove any extra items, such as locker shelves, decorations, extra coats and clothing items so that their final ½-day on Thursday is an easy transition out. Also, all food items must be discarded so that we don’t create any “science experiments” over the summer time. Teachers will provide bins for new or gently used items that students wish to donate (such as pens, pencils, paper, notebooks) and these items will be added to our PKMS Food Pantry to support families in the District #301 community.
News from the LMC.
Time is running out and there are still a lot of students with library overdues that need to be cleared. Please remind your student to return their missing books and pay their overdue fines. Fines may be paid with food pantry donations (each item clears up to $1.00 in overdue fines), but all lost books must be paid for. Notices are being sent daily, so have your student check their email to make sure all has been cleared.
Summer reading should be an important part of your students’ summer plans. It will keep their minds sharp and ready for next school year. Both Gail Borden and Ella Johnson libraries have summer reading programs and you don’t need to be part of their library district to participate. Check their websites to register online. Participants log their reading online and can win great prizes.
Don’t forget about the ebooks that can be accessed all summer through Destiny on the District website. Students just need to log in with their username and password for a great selection of online books.
PKMS P.E. uniforms now on sale for the 2019-2020 school year.

This “shop” opened Friday, May 10th and will close Friday, June 28th.
