• Dear Parents & Guardians,

    Happy New Year to each of you!  January 2019 brings a new year and new opportunities.  Here at Penny Road, we look forward to the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year.  Each day brings new opportunities to impact the lives of our students and I’m anticipating greatness here at Penny Road.  The following information has been provided to you for updates about our amazing school.


    Student Assignment Strips were sent home the week of December 17th.  The assignment strip provides important information on your child’s school assignment for the next school year. Please make sure that you have reviewed the Student Assignment Strip.  Contact Mrs. Steffee Bowden, Data Manager for questions.
