We started Fall off right! Pea Ridge students, staff, and families celebrated the season at Unbridled Pediatric Therapies for our first annual Fall Festival. Students painted pumpkins, created their own handkerchiefs, played with horses, and had a picnic. Check out some of our pictures from our special day!
- “Don’t worry parents, we’ve got this!” This week, brave students from Pea Ridge Middle School rode the shuttle bus together to Community Clinic Pea Ridge to get their missing vaccinations. If it’s time for your child to receive immunizations, call us at (479) 488-3003 to set up an appointment and arrange transportation. Join us in celebrating these independent students!
Color Days continue this week! Please note, as Tuesday 9/28 is picture day, our color theme is raindbow! Be sure to wear your favorite color or outfit.
- Homeroom teachers are sending weekly updates to all families. Please let us know if you aren’t receiving yours and we’ll verify your email address. You are welcome to call our office at 479-451-0620.
