Welcome to Prescott Magnet Cluster School
Prescott Parents is an active community of parents, family members and friends of Prescott students. We work with Principal Erin Roche, Assistant Principal Jennifer Rath, faculty members, Alderman Waguespack, local universities and other community members to direct and support a variety of programs that enrich our students’ experience at Prescott School.
Prescott Parents was established about 10 years ago as an external marketing and fundraising resource for Prescott School. Having helped Prescott grow and thrive, it now serves as an external and internal resource for the school.
Prescott Parents mission:
Prescott Parents works to create a socially relevant community of supporters for Prescott Elementary School that embraces our journey, believes in public education and promotes academic excellence.
Prescott Parents, through its team of committed volunteers, works to enhance the school facilities, underwrite academic and extracurricular programs, assist teachers in their classrooms, host the annual Prescott fundraiser, build the Prescott community, and coordinate communications to keep the greater Prescott community connected.
From time to time you’ll hear us call ourselves the Wolfpack, to pay homage to the new school mascot the Prescott Wolves and to represent our loyalty to one another and the school. In 2015-16 school year, Prescott Parents introduced two new events – the Taste of Prescott, a celebration of our rich and diverse community through food and music, and the Spartan Wolfpack Adventure Race, an obstacle race that we do together as a powerful parent network – and will continue to bring many other activities to the Prescott Community, like:
- Annual Prescott Benefit
- Field Day
- End-of-School-Year Picnic
- Back-to-school Popsicle Party
- Book Fairs
- Pop Up Fundraising Events
- School Dances
- Teacher Appreciation
- Holiday Pledge Drive
- Prescott in the Park-Summer Playdates
We have over 25 Wolfpack Committee Pack Leaders planning for the school year and we invite you to get involved. With more activities than ever on the horizon, we are counting on your support to strengthen our Prescott community. We ask that each family commit three hours a year (or more!) to support Prescott.
