PRMS L.E.A.D.S. Program

The L.E.A.D.S. program is designed for students who display a strong interest in building 21st century leadership skills for the application and analysis of science, technology, engineering, and math, to include use of creative arts and the design process. 

L.E.A.D.S. will serve students with personal characteristics including persistence, thirst for knowledge, an eagerness to explore new areas of scientific information and a willingness to engage in minds-on activities related to STEM education.

School Hours

8:00 First Bell
8:10 Tardy Bell
3:25 End of Day Dismissal

Due to the safety & security of our students, there will be no early dismissals after 3:00 without administrative approval.  We cannot guarantee phone messages taken over the phone will reach your student. 

You must write a note if your child's transportation is different than normal and have your child take it to the office.  Car pick up is only in front of the school between the sidewalk black poles. 

We hope that you understand that these procedures are necessary for PRMS to operate safely and efficiently. Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns at 755-7400.
