Summer Improvements Planned for Pringle

posted Jun 2, 2014, 1:58 PM by pringle elementary

The summer will bring bond-funded repairs and renovations to our school.


This repair work is thanks to the support of our local voters who approved a $242.1 million construction bond measure in November 2008.


The projects taking place across the district this summer are in addition to the work originally planned under the bond. Because of a competitive bid environment, lower inflation, strong management of the program and earnings on the bond funds, the district had a total of about $67 million in unspent funds after the completion of planned renovations and repairs. These unspent funds are being used to pay for additional work over a three-year period. The summer of 2014 is the second year of projects funded by the unspent bond funds. Allocation of these funds was recommended by the Citizen Bond Oversight Committee and approved by the School Board.

Pringle Elementary School will receive repairs and/or replacement to playground fall-zones, damaged walkways and curbs, and an HVAC system upgrade, which means that next fall our students will have a healthier, safer and more comfortable learning environment.


Feel free to share the good news of the construction bond and the improvements it has brought to the quality of our education facilities, to the learning environment, and benefit for our community.


The repair work may cause some disruption to our normal summer operations. We appreciate your patience and understanding while our schools undergo these important renovations, repairs, and safety upgrades and for your continued support of our students’ education and future.

In May our focus is on being patient.  Being PATIENT is showing  empathy toward others, being diligent with work and situations, and finally, being respectful of others and their rights.


 Some examples of being patient are:

         ·  Raising your hand to speak

·  Waiting your turn in line

·  Waiting for others to finish speaking or working without interrupting
We will continue to celebrate all of our 7P's through June. We hope that students recall these traits throughout the summer and come back in September ready to continue their "Climb to Greatness".

March is for being positive!

posted Mar 3, 2014, 10:23 AM by pringle elementary

 In March our focus is on being positive.  Being POSITIVE means  thinking optimistically. Such as thinking of the glass being half full, instead of half empty. Being positive means:

 ·  celebrating what is going well,

·  believing in yourself and others,

·  when someone does something well, you tell them good job.

 We will focus on encouraging students that, when something is hard for them, they CAN do it if they keep trying. Ask for help, try another way, try again!

· Think before you act

January we focus on being a partner.  Being a partner goes along with our CLIMB to Greatness posters. The ‘I” in CLIMB stands for “Include others”. Being a partner means:

       · Helping others in class and at recess

· Working together to solve problems both during learning times    and when you are playing.

· Showing new students around the school

· Being careful about what you say that you don’t hurt other’s feelings.
