Principal’s Message

Dear Siwanoy,

We are at the juncture of Memorial Day weekend! Can you believe it? We have been working extremely hard to finish the year off smoothly. There are many events coming up, so please be on the lookout for information coming from your child's teacher.

Thank you to the many parents and family members that came to enjoy STEAM Day with us. The turnout was huge and our teachers were grateful for the support. I too was able to see some cool experiments, and feel confident that our Earth is good hands thanks to our future scientists and engineers!

Lastly, I would like to give a huge shout out to our first grade teachers for putting on an amazing show about families. It brought me chills to hear our students speak about what makes their family special! Being able to see and celebrate with Tommy was very special as well. His friends were so excited to see him :-).

We look forward to an awesome week ahead. Enjoy the long weekend and please be safe. Happy Memorial Day to all!

STEAM Day - May 21



5th Grade Field Day

5th grade Field Day is always a great time. Students are extremely excited because it is the first time they all come together across the district to meet and interact with one another!


Lunch Accounts
Please remember to fund your child's NutriKid/MySchoolBucks accounts.
Now that we are in the final stretch of the school year, please remember to add additional funds to your MySchoolBucks account.  This is especially true if your child orders two lunches.  If you do not have enough money in your account then that child will only get one lunch.  You can carry any remaining balance over to the Middle and High Schools.

What is My School Bucks and how do I fund the account? is a payment website which interacts with the Nutrikids point of sale system.  On the site, parents fund their student’s account and view purchase transactions.  Alternatively, send in a check made payable to PUFSD Cafeteria Fund.
