Pike PTA:

  • Each year our school (and PTA) works hard to earn the designation of being a national School of Excellence. As a part of this designation, we strive hard to improve the communications between our school, our families, and our community.  We would appreciate your participation in this important survey.  Many of you completed this survey at the beginning of the year.  We used the results of that survey to set goals for improvement over the school year.  We are encouraging you to answer the same questions again to see how you feel that we have done.  We ask that you take time to complete the survey no later than THURSDAY, MAY 26TH, 2022. 

 

 

 

Thank you
