Every month we compile a list of students doing great things across the River Region. We have so many talented students in our area. River Region Parents joins with their families and schools to celebrate their achievements!
Miles of Quarters at PRES
Through the Miles of Quarters campaign, the PRES Guidance Department donated $600 to the Council on Substance Abuse. This campaign served as the first school-wide “Kindness Campaign.” The money was donated during Red Ribbon Week, in which more than 2,000 quarters were donated from PK-C3 classes. COSA representatives stated that the money would be used to buy much-needed food items.
PRIS SGA Food Drive
The Student Government Association (SGA) at PRIS successfully hosted its 3rd annual food drive, displaying dedication and community spirit. Over the course of approximately two weeks, SGA officers actively promoted and motivated their fellow students to contribute donations.
Following the collection period, the SGA members volunteered at the Woodland Church Food Pantry. On Saturday morning, they packed bags and loaded meals into vehicles. Notably, this event holds a special significance as it draws former officers back to lend their support, highlighting its profound impact and enduring importance within the SGA community.
PRHS Show Choir Steals the Spotlight
Pike Road’s musical ensembles hit all the right notes at their debut competition, claiming top honors. Prestige, the High School Show Choir, stole the spotlight by delivering an electrifying performance earning all superior scores and securing the Division Six First Place Trophy!! The group of 51 students rocked the stage with powerful renditions of rock anthems like “Burn it to the Ground”, “Uninvited”, and “Paint it Black”. Our Middle School Concert Choir also brought home the first-place trophy in Division Seven.
PRIS Field Trip to ASF
C5 learners got to spend the day at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival seeing A Christmas Carol! They even got to see one of their classmates, Hank Posey, performing!
Holiday Fun at PRIS
Holiday party day was a success! It was a fun way to celebrate the season and all the hard work you have put in this semester!
Tis the Season for Giving at PRIS
Many of our lead learners incorporated a service project into their December lessons. Some of our C4 classes read The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, where a China rabbit learns about life and love, and they discussed how something that seemingly does nothing- like a toy rabbit- can bring so much comfort. These classes brought in stuffed animals to donate to the Sheriff’s department for use when they go on calls involving children. Corporal Haywood came from the sheriff’s department to offer thanks and pick up the donations. C6 also held a competition between houses for who could bring the most toys for donating to Toys for Tots! The Legends house won and over 50 toys were donated!
