We hope that you had a wonderful May long weekend with your families!

* District SafeArrival Change: 

This is notification that Parkcrest Elementary (and all other district schools) will be changing to a new SafeArrival absence reporting system starting June 1.  This week we will email you explaining the three new methods that you can use to report student lates/absences.  Detailed information will come home this week regarding the new procedures. 

*PAC Dilly Bar order forms are due back to the school this week.  They are a blue sheet and if you didn't get one you can pick another one up at the office window!

*Thank you to all of the parents who came to support our students who participated in the Zone Track Meet (we had 65 students participate) and the District Track Meet (we had 25 students participate).  Our students made us proud! Thank you to all of the teachers and Mr. Naylor who made this possible.
