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. serves students who display a thirst for knowledge, persistence, an eagerness to explore new areas of scientific information, and a willingness to engage in minds-on activities related to STEM education. 

School Hours

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

Due to the safety and security of our students, there will be no early dismissals without prior written notice turned in that morning to the office.

Parents must write a note if a child's transportation is different than normal and turn it in to the office in the morning.  We cannot guarantee phone messages taken over the phone will reach your student. Car pick up is only in front of the school between the sidewalk black poles. 

Students on a school field trip may not be picked up at the trip location unless an Off Campus Dismissal Form was submitted and approved prior to the day of the trip. 

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.  
At PRMS we go for G.O.L.D. 
Give your best
Own your learning
Lead by positive example
Demonstrate excellent manners
