Driven by Excellence


Announcements, recognitions, and district issues that affect the voting and tax paying public—if you need to know about it, we’ll have it here.

District Newsletters

We want you to know the great things happening in our school district. Please visit this page regularly for the latest newsletters and information.

PSCD#1's Music Program

Nearly everyone enjoys music, which makes PCSD#1’s music program an enjoyable co-curricular subject for students! Music programs are beneficial to students in many ways that include helping students develop areas in their brains that are related to language and reasoning. For more information about our band program, or if you would like to contribute/donate to this fund and continue creating opportunities for PCSD1 band students, please read our December 2018 newsletter.

Shopko Account

The school district houses an account called the Shopko Account. All schools use this account to provide emergency, one-time use funds to help our students, and is entirely based on donations. Account funds have purchased everything from toothpaste to an overnight stay in a hotel. If you would like to contribute to this account, please contact Alison Pindell (Southside Elementary School Social Worker) or Gloria Randall. We would greatly appreciate any support received as we strive to meet the needs of our students. Thank you!

School Resource Officer

Many schools have a school resource officer on campus to help with student safety. A school resource officer is someone you can trust with any safety concerns. We have a new school resource officer, Trevor. Trevor is a Wyoming native who has over five years experience as a police officer. He also holds a bachelors degree in criminal justice. Trevor also has additional training with the National Association of School Resource Officers (NASRO). You can read more about our new school resource officer and his responsibilities in the latest edition of our district newsletter.

School Safety

Proactive training versus reactive training is PCSD#1's approach when it comes to school safety. Proactive training teaches students and staff how to respond and act during emergency and/or crisis situations. Read all about our approach to school safety in our recent district newsletter.

National Blue Ribbon School

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program is a national program created to honor schools across the nation who demonstrate high levels of student academic achievement. We would like to congratulate Westside Elementary for receiving the Blue Ribbon Award! Westside is one of the best, with 80% of their students meeting their learning growth targets and demonstrating a strong dedication to learning! Congratulations, Westside! Please take a moment to read more about this award in the latest edition of our newsletter.
