Walk-A-Thon is Coming!

The Walkathon will be here before we know it! Teachers will be collecting T-Shirt Sizes from your students this week. If you know what size T-Shirt your son or daughter wears, please let him or her know or email your child’s teacher so that everyone gets the size they need. Thanks.


NeSA (Nebraska State Accountability) Testing begins for 5th Grade on April 11th!

We will be testing on April 11th, April 12, April 19th, April 20th, April 24th and April 26th. 

Please plan on your students attending school all day on each of these important testing days. Help them prepare by ensuring they get a good night’s sleep the night before the test and have a good breakfast in the morning. (Prescott offers breakfast if eating at home is not an option.)

This is when our 5th graders prove to the rest of the district why they are The Pride of All Prescott! NeSA testing is not something to be scared of; it is something to be conquered. If our students do their best, their absolute best, nothing will stop them–not even a NeSA test.

Photos still needed

Parents of 2016-2017 Prescott 5th Graders: 
Take a deep breath! It is that time of year again! As our 5th graders are winding down their elementary school careers and preparing for middle school, I am working to prepare our annual end of the year 5th grade video to be presented at our graduation ceremony. We have a long tradition at Prescott of including in the video a baby picture of each student next to his or her current 5th grade picture. This year, I would like to slightly alter our tradition. Please provide me with a picture of your 5th grader as a kindergartener with you in the picture. Our 5th graders are the Pride of All Prescott because they have worked hard to complete elementary school… but you are part of that equation as well and this year, we’d like to honor you along with your student. If you have a digital photograph you can email it to me at kriley@lps.org Please include your child’s name and teacher’s name in the subject line. If you only have hard copies please have your child bring the photo in to me. I will digitize it and return it to your child that same day. Thank you for taking a few minutes to do this. The 5th grade video is an important and exciting tradition.
