Title 1 School Improvement
January 8, 2013
Dear Parent / Guardian:
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that according to 2011-12 state student assessment results, Pershing Elementary School is in Year 2 of Title I School Improvement for 2012-2013 school year under the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law. Pershing Elementary School did not make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) towards the goal of being proficient in mathematics.

We changed opportunities for students to exercise before school begins each morning on our playground here at Pershing. Since we started this process, we have noticed traffic safety concerns in getting students across to the playground and back into the building with Tyler street being left open.
In order to provide safety for our students, we will close our gates on Tyler Street during the morning only. Tyler Street gates will be open after school. Please drop-off Kindergarten through second grade students on the south side of Pershing. Third grade through fifth grade students may be dropped-off either on the south or north side of the playground.
Thank you for helping keep our students safe.
