District Announcements
Pewaukee SD APP Notice
We are experiencing issues in the Student Information section of the PSD mobile app. Food Service balances and other information (grade level) are not syncing correctly with our Student Information System. We are working with the vendor's support team to get this resolved as quickly as possible. Please refer to Skyward Family Access to check on the current information for your student (lunch balance, schedule, grade level, teacher, etc.). We will post a notification when the issue is resolved. Thank you for your patience.
Pewaukee SD APP
Download the Pewaukee School District app, available for Apple and Google. Search for Pewaukee School District (Parent Link). Call 262-695-5036 for assistance or questions.

BACKPACK OFFERS

Positively Pewaukee would like to assist those students who may need financial assistance in gathering together supplies for the 2015-16 school year.  Emails can be sent to Amy Farrow, Horizon School Counselor at farramy@pewaukeeschools.org and she will forward your child’s need to Positively Pewaukee.  All information will be kept confidential as it is forwarded but Positively Pewaukee will need to know the basics such as grade level and gender of child.  

 

If you are interested please follow send email by June 5th, 2015:

  1. Subject line of E-mail should read “PP Back-pack request”

  2. Please type in:

  1. Child’s Name and Gender

  2. Parent / Guardian Name

  3. Grade level for 2015-16

  4. If you also qualify for financial aid and are interested in help with healthy snacks for the upcoming year, please indicate that here as well.  This is a idea Positively Pewaukee is considering but it is not a confirmed possibility.  We are simply taking a survey about interest in this.  Next year’s teacher would email you in October if it is possible.  If you do NOT hear from them, please assume that program did not develop.
READ LIKE A PIRATE
Sixth grade students have created a Wix website for our summer literacy program. It is called Read Like a Pirate: Summer 2015. Students will find apps, leveled book lists and recommendations, literacy websites, and activities for readers. It gives all sorts of incentive programs (Pewaukee Public Library, free tokens at Chuck E. Cheese, a free book at Barnes & Noble, etc.) to reward the motivated readers. Sixth graders made book trailers, and there are about 200 pictures (or more!) of our very own Horizon students. Check it out!
