What an amazing school and staff here at Pierce Park! Thank you to Terri Lindemann and Sarah Dunn who organized a staff fundraiser on behalf of Team Saylor for the fight against Type 1 Diabetes for her final year at Pierce Park. We are beyond grateful for the love and support this school has shown her throughout the years. Every year our Pierce Park friends have shown up and supported her at the JDRF walk. We are sorry we cannot walk this year however the research still continues. We have personally benefited from the technological advancements stemming from this research. Thank you to Eric Ennis and Barb Friedt for your donations.We so appreciate it and are hopeful for a cure!

Hey Fellow Parents!
Outdoor Exchange is having a great kids fall/winter gear & clothing sale! Some jackets have seen some kiddo-love but great brands like Patagonia, Spyder, Obermeyer, Rossignol, Scott and others for $10-$50! Perfect for that second school winter set OR ski ski set.

You can also consign the jackets that your kids have outgrown and get cash or use that credit to get the next size up! Works great and gets you the brands that keep your little ones warm without paying full retail! Pass it along:)
Attention 2nd grade basketballers! Girls Yball starts next week, and we are in need of a few more girls to fill out the team. Practices will be at Pierce Park on Wednesdays and games on Saturdays. Please message me for more info, or contact your downtown YMCA. Thanks! 🏀🙌💯
My son will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall. I was thinking it would be a fun idea to start a playdate group for other kids that will be starting half day and full day kindergarten at Pierce Park this Fall. Of course this would be open to any kids and siblings, but I was thinking of specifically getting together the future Kindergarteners so that they could meet some of the kids that will be in their class. I thought this would be a fun way to relieve some of the anxieties (for kids and parents), about starting a new school.

If there is interest in doing this- I thought we could just pick a day and time and meet each week at the school playground. Then you could show up on weeks that worked for you.

also I'm not sure if this is the best way to reach out to families of kindergarteners, so if you have other ideas please let me know! Thanks!
Ms. Bunch's class appreciates our awesome staff! Thanks so much for all you do, and feel free to save some of the coffee for kindergarten registration :)
4th grade field trip...some serious learning at the Bown House!
Girls on the Run ! ❤️
Our little Girls On the Run group is having so much fun, and getting stronger every week! Our end-of-season 5k is coming up Saturday October 28th at the YMCA Halloween Run at Ann Morrison Park! If you want to come cheer these girls on, we would love it! Race starts at 6pm, and you'll spot us with our black panther ears, tails, and whiskers. :)
Thanks for a great Math Night! We appreciated all the Panther staff that gave up their Friday night to help us with bar models, number bonds, and ratio tables!

[03/06/18]   Hello wonderful Pierce Park community! Is anyone available today (Tuesday, March 6th) to scan badges for Pacers? 11:30-12:45. Please reply back if you can do it!


Wagons Ho! 4th and 5th grade students got to experience life as pioneers this past Monday when Wagons Ho came to Pierce Park!

They made butter, cooked a Dutch oven meal, drilled holes in buttons, saw musket bullets be made, sawed logs, chopped wood, learned to brand wood, and much more!

Thank you for your donations throughout the year that helped bring this wonderful program to PP!


We had so much fun promoting healthy eating and physical activity at our Panther Pacers Kickoff Event last week! Our food group mascots had a ball helping with a Chopped-style smoothie contest and goofing around in a game of hungry hippo during the assembly. Afterward, the whole school got into the act with a 20 minute walk! Thank you to Idaho Dairy Council and Fuel Up to Play 60 for the grant that makes this program possible!

[09/25/17]   I need an extra volunteer to help scan badges for Pacers tomorrow (Tuesday) 9/26 from 11:30-12:30. If you are able to help, please text Pohley (208) 724-2815. Thank you!


Ready, set, GO!!! Pacers starts today! Make sure your kids wear running/walking shoes to participate, and cross your fingers for no rain!! #youthwellness #activekids #loveit


These two superstar runners are outfitted with new kicks and ready to start Panther Pacers, our in-school run/walk program at Pierce Park Elementary. Thanks to the generous support from Brandon Frank and Fleet Feet Sports in Meridian, who donated the shoes to our program, and who support our efforts in youth wellness! If you need new athletic shoes, Fleet Feet is the place to go! They have an amazing staff and super awesome shoes (and socks and clothing too!)!


Panther Pacers starts next Tuesday, September 19th!! Pacers is every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch recess! Amazing big changes in store this year! No more hand stamps! Every student will get a nametag for Pacers, which will be scanned to count laps! Plus, new prizes and incentives!

Please have your students wear their walking/running shoes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and encourage them to participate!

2017 Girls on the Run Treasure Valley NEW Volunteer Application FALL

Hi everyone! Guess what?! Girls On The Run (GOTR) starts next week! There will be fliers coming home today hopefully!
We are still in need of a couple of "Practice Partners to just be available during practices to help out. Jamie Marie Ford and I will be leading the curriculum, so you would just be an extra person to be available to the girls. You don't have to be able to run, just positive reinforcement and listening, even handing out snacks would be a big help! We have to have 2 registered adults present at each meeting, so it would be awesome to have a couple of people willing to be at each practice just in case something happens and Jamie or I can't be there on a day for some reason. If anyone is willing to help out please register here, so the organization knows who is with the girls! Thanks so much! Also, it is time to register those girls! If you register by the 30th (our 1st day of practice) you will avoid the late fee! Tuition is based on need. Spread the word, please! :) https://www.raceplanner.com/volunteer/signup/fall-2017-volunteer

We had such a great time at Fuel Greatness at BSU! We learned all about the importance of eating healthy and being physically active for at least 60 minutes per day and got to meet Blitz, Seagals and a former Seahawk player! These students earned this trip because of their outstanding efforts in Panther Pacers! Way to go!


We had an amazing experience at the Fuel Greatness event at BSU yesterday! Congratulations to these amazing students who rocked Panther Pacers this year! Thank you to #fueluptoplay60 and #idahodairy for a great event!

Mark your calendars! Spring Carnival is April 28th! Games, prizes, face painting and fun! Yipee!!http://weknowyourdreams.com/images/carnival/carnival-04.jpg



We are working to create a culture of health and wellness at Pierce Park! During March, National Nutrition Month, we promoted vegetable consumption through several different events including "Try-It Tuesdays". Two vegetables were featured every Tuesday, and students were encouraged to try them and vote for their favorite. The last matchup pitted the two favorites from previous weeks together - sweet peppers vs. peas. The peppers edged out the peas - 57 to 41! I encourage you to continue to create healthy choices at home - encourage your kids to eat a variety of colorful veggies every single day! Build on the ones they like and encourage them to be willing to try unfamiliar ones. The more we encourage and expose our kids to healthy foods, the more likely they will be to make healthy choices on their own. We are building the foundation for lifelong health in our kids right now! #FuelUptoPlay60 #IdahoDairy #Youthwellness #Pierce Park


Join us tomorrow 3/16 to help plan the spring carnival!! 3:30 pm!

Get Involved

As someone who has canvassed and worked the phone banks for the Yes for Boise Schools campaign, I can honestly say it has been a positive experience. I know that calling strangers and visiting neighborhoods is out of most people’s comfort zones (mine too!), but please consider taking a few hours out of your day to help get this very important bond passed—I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Click this link to see the volunteer opportunities: https://yesforboiseschools.com/get-involved/ . If we don’t all pitch in to spread word and help the effort, this bond might not pass. And as you know, the passage of this bond is very important for our children’s future and for future generations. We need to fix our aging schools and rebuild the ones that need it. I feel that we have a very conscientious and practical school district that spends money wisely for the betterment of our children and our community. Please support this effort to pass this school bond on March 14th!

The winner of the door decorating contest (and a smoothie party!) for National Nutrition Month is Mrs. Hill's class! Great job! I am inspired by all of the amazing and creative doors promoting vegetable consumption!


March is National Nutrition Month! We are promoting healthy choices and increased vegetable consumption all month! Every Monday in March is Mentor Monday. Mr. Ryan kicked it off yesterday as our healthy eating mentor! It's a great time to talk to your kids about healthy foods and how important good nutrition is for their bodies and minds!
