Calendar of Events


Our monthly newsletter goes out the first day of the month (depending on what day that lands on). Our newsletter features our students of the month, upcoming events, and a note from the principal and nurse. To stay informed and see upcoming events at our school, please read the newsletter we send home with your student.



We have had great volunteers this last school year and appreciate all they do for our school and students from helping in the classroom to teaching P.E. If you would be interested in helping in any  way, contact your student's teacher to set up a designated time to come volunteer.


Pima Elementary School is blessed to have such great parents who care about their children’s teachers, staff, and school. We appreciate all the support we have received. If you are looking for more information on what events the Parent Teachers Organization (PTO) sponsors and would like to become involved with our PTO at Pima Elementary School, please visit their facebook page.

Thanks again for all your support!
