High School, Junior High, and 7th Grade Cheer tryouts are coming up!

 

As partners in your children’s education, it is important to ensure that they are prepared for each step along their educational journey.  One way to determine student preparedness is through assessment; therefore, we will be administering ACT Aspire tests to students in grades 3-10 in April.  Read more about ACT Aspire testing here: http://bit.ly/3eCVMMy

 

We’re excited to announce that The NEST website is officially ready to serve our Blackhawk community! The school store is led by Mrs. Tiauna Young and managed completely by Pea Ridge High School Marketing and Business Pathway students.

If you need school spirit items, we hope that you will consider supporting Pea Ridge students with your purchase:  https://nest.pearidgek12.com/

Intermediate School

It’s yearbook time! We are working on the yearbooks for Primary, Intermediate, and Middle School and we need group pictures of all grades in basketball, football, and cheer. We need these pictures for girl’s and boy’s teams. You can include any pictures you have of the teams actually playing and we will try to include as much as possible in the books.

Also, if your child is virtual and you weren’t able to get their picture taken at school, you can email us a picture against a plain background from just above the waist and we will get their picture in the yearbook. Please include your student’s grade and their virtual teacher in the email.

Any of these pictures can be emailed to: pearidgepto@gmail.com. Please include a description in the subject line. For example, if it is a picture of the boy’s 5th grade A basketball team, please put that as the subject line.

We will be getting the order forms out to you as soon as we get them. It seems there was a slight hiccup and we were left of the list of schools that would be ordering yearbooks through Lifetouch so they are getting order forms to us as quickly as possible.
