From the Desk of Dr. Sladek

Tribe Families,

I want to apologize for the lack of communication when it comes to my "Thursday Emails." However, I think we are all surviving just fine without them ;) Regardless, I do feel better and feel like everyone is on the same page when I do communicate (or over communicate) weekly. SO, here we go…

What to expect over the next 7 and ½ days?!

PHS Seniors!

It's hard to believe our seniors have 14 days left of school!  To ensure we finish strong we have few more events I would like to share with you. 

*Scentsy Fundraiser - this is online and runs through TODAY May 17.  It's that time of the year we are start spring cleaning so why not get something to make your home smell great too!  This would be another great gift idea for Mother's Day.  Follow the link to order:

***If you are not able to attend or purchase anything, that's okay!  You can still support us by sharing our events.  Please feel free to share this email or go online on FB and share our events.  If you go on FB search for Pacific High School Project Graduation and look under the events tab.

Once again, we cannot thank you enough for your continued support of our seniors.  Without the support of parents, staff, and the community, Project Graduation would not be possible.  


Parent/Stakeholder Survey:

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education is gathering public input on its American Rescue Plan for the use of federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds. Input is being gathered from a variety of education stakeholders to address the most important steps that can be taken to support unfinished learning and the social, emotional, and mental health needs of students and school staff. Please provide your responses on the Stakeholder Survey here by Wednesday, May 19, 2021. The survey should take less than five minutes to complete.
