3rd Grade Students are #1 in the District!:

Once again, PPSEL students have excelled academically.  We have received our 3rd grade TCAP reading scores, and our students surpassed the district and state averages.  In fact, at 85% proficient and advanced, our students were #1 in the entire district! Join with me in celebrating just one more success of our students. 

Congratulations 3rd grade students!  You have proven what we already knew--that our students and teachers are amazing! Thank you for working so hard.  We love having the top scores in the district!
