Parent Survey: PRIDE Academy needs you to complete an online survey to communicate your perceptions about your child’s school. Your participation is voluntary, but extremely important. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement. If you have more than one child at this school, you will only need to complete one survey. Please fill out just one survey about the school using your oldest child as a reference. Access the survey using the following URL: surveys.wested.org/csps/KY642AZ
Progress Reports: Trimester 3 Progress Reports will go home next week between April 16th-20th. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have questions or need clarification.
Parking Lot Construction: The 10 Electric Car Charging Spaces, provided by SDG&E, were installed over Spring Break. This is an amazing opportunity for teachers, families, and the PRIDE Academy community to use a renewable resource. These spaces are not reserved and can still be used as regular parking spaces, when needed.
