The Freedom Fun Run was a HUGE success! Thank you parents for coming out and supporting us! Thank you so much to our PTO for organizing and managing this wonderful fundraiser for our school!

Together we raised over $12,500 for Purcell Elementary & Purcell Intermediate Schools! #DragonCARES Our winners are pictured below. I will be sharing class pictures in the Principal's newsletter this evening. Have a great last week of school Little Dragons!

We are encouraging and providing flu shots from the Chickasaw Nation. Forms are included in parent newsletters. We also have printed forms available at the school. We are providing flu shots on Monday at PES from 1-3pm. We will allow parents to come inside and go with their child to get the flu shot. Please know that you will need to wear a mask to enter the building. Shots are provided to students and staff only.
Parents & Dragon Fans- Dragon Softball and Football Seasons have begun! We can't wait to see you at the games! However, due to CDC guidelines, we are requiring students to stay seated with parents or family members and will not be allowed to run around unattended at events. Students will only be allowed to enter with parents. Students will not be allowed to be dropped of at games/events without a grown-up. Our goal is to be able to stay in school and to be able to continue to host sporting events. Working together we hope to be able to continue to host sporting events with guests attending as well as ensure the safety of all. Thank you for helping us make this sports season safe! #GoDragons!❤️🐉❤️🐉😷
Thank you, parents, for your patience as we worked to develop a plan at the Elementary and Intermediate buildings to be able to open at 7:30am. We will begin opening at 7:30am starting this Thursday. Prior to COVID and CDC guidelines, we could easily cover a large group with fewer adults. Extra support has been provided and we hope this helps our Dragon families who need to drop off students at 7:30. Thank you and see you tomorrow!❤️🐉

Happy Monday Morning! I know some of you have wondered about this. We are always generous with water breaks when recess is hot, but when the heat index is 100 or higher we do not go out at all. You will probably hear grumbling that "we missed recess" tonight. 😢 We will monitor the temp/heat index adjusting appropriately from one recess to the next.
What a great beginning! A great big shout out to the staff and much appreciation to our patrons and community. #pesstartsthespark #growstrongpes
We are having a great first day! Just few reminders for drop off and dismissal. Building opens @ 7:30 am. Pre-k enters on west end and reports to classrooms. Everyone enters at main entrance and reports to the cafeteria if arriving before 7:45. After 7:45 K-2 may report directly to th e classrooms. Pre-k dismisses on the west end at 2:30. Please remain in your vehicle and pull through the pickup line. The staff will load your student K-2 dismisses at 2:55. It is strongly encouraged that you pull through in the pick up line. If you elect to walk up please wait outside the awning, keep the area clear and your student will be released to you by the teacher. Please be patient as we work to establish safe procedures to get everyone in and out safely.
Super excited for the first day! Please remember that it takes a few days to get our groove on at drop off and dismissal. The traffic will seem overwhelming. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work to get everyone in and out safely.

Any temperature greater than 100 degrees F is considered a fever. Children must be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications (such as Tylenol, Motrin, Advil, etc.) in order to return to school. This applies even if the underlying cause of the fever is non-infectious, such as middle ear infections, etc. Children with a fever do not usually feel well enough to participate and attend school activities. It is recommended that they be given 24 hours to recover from the fever before returning to school. Please help us minimize the spread of the flu, strep, and other viruses by following this guidance.
