March's Message

​Principal’s March Message
Oki Welcome to Sa’aiki’somm
It’s hard to believe half the school year has already passed. February was a cold month at PFS; almost the entire month was spent inside due to extreme wind chill temperatures. We are very grateful for the donation of handmade mittens and toques from Ms. Del Ray which kept our students warm during the cold mornings and afterschool bus rides.
It is during this coldest season our ancestors shared of themselves and their earthly possessions for the survival of the clan. At PFS, staff and students witness many acts of kimmapiiypiisinni, kindness, such as the G.5/6 students inviting our kindergarten students to join in a game of soccer. I love how our students care for one another! Parents you should be proud of the kind young women and men your children are becoming.
Parent Teacher Conferences will take place on Thursday, March 21 (4:00 – 7:00 p.m.) and Friday, March 22 (9:00 – 12:00). Book your appointment by calling the school.
Spring Break – March 22 – 29, 2019
No school for students and staff.
PFS welcomed a new member to our family, Mariam Safi, Behavior Support Worker. Mariam brings a wealth of knowledge in social-emotional learning; providing self-regulation strategies for students, helping them get ready for learning. Welcome, Mariam!
I am very grateful for the private donors who support our breakfast, lunch, and snack program. Danette, PFS Lunchroom Supervisor, provides nutritious meals and snacks which support student learning. Parents are welcomed to send food items to school; however, we ask you to send only nutritious food items. Unfortunately, chips, ice tea, pop, and chocolate, etc. are not acceptable and will be taken away and returned to the student at the end of the school day.
PFS Annual Round Dance will take place on Wednesday, March 20,1:00 – 2:45. We are grateful to Awo Taan Healing Lodge for the generous donation to this event. We are asking female parents and guardians to support in preparing the feast for students and light lunch for parents. Feast preparation will begin at 7:00 a.m. If you are interested in volunteering, please call the school. Parents RSVP for the Round Dance by calling the school as soon as possible.
Reminder to parents to visit the website, teacher blogs, and messenger for more information on March activities.
Have a warm and safe March!!​
