  • Superintendent forms committee to review feasibility of balanced calendar

    A committee of eight PPS principals, representing primary, middle and secondary schools, has embarked on a two-year study to research the feasibility of a balanced or non-traditional calendar for the Peoria Public Schools. Currently, Valeska Hinton Early Childhood Education Center (VHECEC) and Knoxville Center for Student Success (KCSS) follow a balanced calendar, consisting of four nine-week intercessions and four three-week breaks.

  • Four PPS school teams to participate in St. Jude Run/Walk, September 23

    Join supporters in communities across the nation during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. On Saturday, September 23, the 2017 St Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer in Peoria will take place at Northwoods Community Church. We invite supporters of all ages and abilities to participate in this unique event. The morning is full of activities aimed at children but inclusive enough for parents to enjoy. This family-friendly event raises funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Teams have already formed at four Peoria Public Schools, creating a friendly competition between Rolling Acres Middle School, Lindbergh Middle School, Richwoods High School and Washington Gifted Middle School. PPS staff and families are encouraged to support their favorite school or add a team of their own to join in on the fun.
