  • Back to School Packets are in the Mail

    Back to school events are just around the corner and we want to make sure you are prepared for the new year! Back to school packets are in the mail to your home (for returning students) and should be arriving this week if they haven't been delivered already. The packets include important information such as school supply lists, health requirements (remember first day compliance is required!) and a school event calendar for your school, which can all be found below. The Superintendent's letter also gives important information as you plan for the new school year. We will be starting the school on a "back to school schedule" with a one hour early release between August 16 and September 1. Regular, full-day schedules will resume on September 5th following the holiday. Visit the links in this story for more details. Also, the handbook/calendar will be mailed to all families by the end of July so that you can use the calendar for back to school events. You will also find information on a new initiative that will allow all K-8 students to visit the Peoria Riverfront Museum with their class once each school year for the next five years.

Students and parents also can meet their principal, grab breakfast or lunch and participate in a large offering of activities, mostly centered around student and parent learning but also including registration and health services.

  • Join our list of Remarkable Readers this summer

    The research is clear that children who don't read during the summer can lose up to three months of reading progress and that loss has a cumulative, long-term effect (Reading Rockets). Peoria Public Schools wants to encourage all our students to stay on the right course this summer. So Dr. Kherat and her team have developed the Remarkable Readers Raffle, an initiative to get all students reading this summer.
