Pike Happenings May 23rd- 27th

Dear Pike Parents and Caregivers,  

It is hard to believe this is the last Pike Happenings for the 21-22 school year and what a fantastic year we had!  As we begin this last week of school, I would like to remind everyone that we are still enforcing our Student Code of Conduct which does include dress code and behavior.  Our goal is for all our panthers to finish the school year strong and on a positive note.  

Thank you, parents, for your support this year our staff appreciated more than you will know. To our 6th and 7th grade families we look forward to another great partnership in 22-23, and to the class of 2026 we will miss you and wish you all the best  as you begin your next adventure! Just remember once a Panther always a panther!

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.
