Kindergarten students playing on the playground in the snow

It's rare that we get snow in November, but we were lucky enough to get some this morning. Our kinder students were lucky and were able to play in the snow for their first recess. Snow much fun!

Visitors meet students at Evergreen Elementary during a Focus on Education tour on Friday, Nov. 18, 2022.

We want to give a big THANK YOU to all the community members who celebrated American Education Week with PSD at our schools. 

Many of you joined Artondale, Pioneer, Swift Water, and Evergreen elementary school students and educators to learn about day-to-day activities, and see our newly constructed buildings. The students enjoyed showing off their classrooms, and visitors enjoyed exploring flex spaces, seeing student art, and witnessing learning in action.
