Box Tops for Education
Our school is once again participating in the Box Tops for Education Program.  We get 10 cents for every Box Top coupon that is submitted tot he school.  We send out monthly coupon worksheets so that students can complete them and turn them in to the office.  We earn $1 for each completed worksheet and every student that turns in a completed worksheet enters into a drawing for various gift cards.  If you need additional coupon worksheets, please stop by the school office.  Thank you for your continued support. 
Merced Mall ShopSmart Program537_eventphoto_Shop_mart_20Logo.jpg
Our school is once again participating in the Merced Mall's ShopSmart Program.  This program gives back to our school by you simply shopping at the various Merced Mall stores, except for Target and Sears.  It's really simple to support our school.  All you need to do is shop at Merced Mall, turn in your receipts to the Merced Mall front desk area or you can bring them to the school.  At the end of the year, the top schools can win up to $2,500.  The Planada Community can support the mall by shopping at the many stores and the Merced Mall will then give back to our school.  In the past we have placed in the top 5 spots.  Thank you for your continued support.
At PES, we encourage every student to become a proficient reader. In an effort to help each child, every student at ES has been given an AR Goal to achieve for the 2014/15 school year. Students are required to read an AR book at their level every day for at least 20-30 minutes. Students take AR quizzes when they have completed a book and can earn points towards their goals. Please help us by ensuring your child reads daily and is earning points towards their goals.

We continue to stress the importance of attending school on a daily basis. Please make sure your child gets to school on time. Students need to be in class, in their seats by 8:00am. If they are walking on campus at 8 a.m. they are tardy and need to report to the office for a tardy slip. This year we will be making a stronger effort to track student tardies and absences. Also, don't forget, if your child is absent from school, please call the school at 382-0272 ext. 100, to notify us of his/her absence. Students with excessive tardies/absences may be referred to the School Attendance Review Board.
