School Hours Changing

Next year (2014-2015), Pumpkin Center Intermediate School’s instructional day will change. 

Start Time: 8:00am

End Time: 2:40pm

Please note: the tardy bell will ring at 8:00am and students not in class at this time, will be counted tardy.  It is important that students be at school on time as instruction will begin at this new time.  The addition of 10 minutes was approved by the LCS Board of Education.  All elementary schools will have 6 hours and 40 minutes for the instructional day.  


Don't forget to READ everyday!  Check out the Student Corner for online Reading resources.

Parents, here is a quick article for you to use when helping your child read this summer!

Parent Portal Now Open

The PowerSchool Parent Portal is now available for parents and students.  Parents may use the Parent Portal to see grades, attendance, class schedules and other information.  It is an Internet-based resource that allows parents to monitor and track their child’s academic progress. 


Got Ink Cartridges?  
Please put ink cartridges in a baggie or envelope with the child’s FULL NAME and teacher’s name.  


The media center at PCIS would like to invite you and your child to come in on Monday afternoons for “after-hours” library time!  The library will be open until 4:30 on Mondays only beginning January 27.

Students will be able to use all of the resources of the library for research or just browse and check out books for fun! 

**Students cannot stay after school and wait on parents to arrive; parents must bring students to the library for the after-hours session. **

Please contact Mrs. Moore if you have any questions.

Parents, we need your support!  Reading 20 minutes everyday is a small request of students' time. It can be completed in the car, while you prepare dinner, or before bedtime; have your child read aloud to you and ask questions about the story or let them share their thoughts.  Visit  http://www2.ed.gov/parents/read/resources/edpicks.jhtml for additional suggestions for helping your child with reading.  

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”- Dr. Seuss.

Please take a moment to look at the website (
http://www.reading-rewards.com/) with your child and see how much they have read this year!


Mrs. Black's and Mrs. Parker's classes went live with NASA today, 12-5-13! They discussed Earth, satellites, and made observations about remote sensing.
