  • Personal Responsibility Slips

    Over the first part of the year, we have been discussing being responsible for ourselves and our work as fifth graders need to do. After four weeks of getting used to our routines and regular assignments, the students now will be held accountable for their classwork and homework responsibilities regularly. Starting this week, students that do NOT submit homework when it is due, important items that need to be returned when they are due, or are not prepared for class each day will complete a Personal Responsibility Report slip (AKA "Pink Responsibility Slips"). Students will complete the slips when necessary, then bring them to me to be signed. Then they will take them home to you to be signed. It is the STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to return the Personal Responsibility Slips to me the NEXT school day by 9:00 am. If the student does not return the Personal Responsibility Report to school when it needs to be returned, the student will have silent lunch as a result that day.

    If you have any questions, please contact me at jpierce@pgs.k12.va.us. Thank you as always for your support!

    Prince George County Public Schools
  • Important Information

    Prince George County Public Schools will open for the 2018-19 school year on September 4, 2018. Parents/guardians of new students to Prince George are encouraged to call and schedule an appointment this summer as soon as possible at the school the child will be attending. Please click here or on the “Schools” menu tab for the address and phone information for each school. Registration for each student will take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours depending upon completion and review of documents, thus the reason for scheduling an appointment to reduce wait time. Appointments are limited and fill very quickly; we encourage you to call early to schedule an appointment.

    The school district will not schedule any student registrations on August 29, 30, 31 or September 4, 2018. Instead, student registrations will resume only by appointment beginning September 5, 2018. Thank you!

     ***If your child receives special services (IEP, 504, and/or health plan, etc.), please bring a copy of the paperwork with you to your registration appointment.***

     All 6th graders must have the state mandated TDAP booster. State law prohibits 6th grade students from starting school without their TDAP booster. If you have not submitted verification of your child’s TDAP booster, please drop off the documentation at J.E.J. Moore Middle School’s main office.
