A portion of the proceeds goes directly to the purchase of new books for our MRC. Thank you for supporting the MRC!

5th Grade Parents: The book fair will have the books listed on the CHMS 6th Grade Summer Reading list. There will be plenty of copies, but if we do run out, we can receive extra books within a day or two.

School Supplies

You won’t want to miss out on this year’s school supplies!  The Prospect PTO is offering 50% off your child’s school supply kit for the next school year.  The price will be reflected on the website. If you order by May 31st your child’s supplies will be delivered directly to the classroom.  If you order past that date you will still receive the 50% discount, however, the supplies will be sent to your home.  Your child can bring the supplies the first day of school.  This is a special way for our PTO to say thank you for all of your support! Don’t forget to take part in this one time opportunity! If you haven’t already yet paid your PTO fees or signed up to volunteer make sure you do as soon as possible.

5th Grade Activities

It’s an exciting time of year for our 5th graders! Please visit the 5th Grade Activities page for more information on all the special events that are planned.

Prospect 5th Grade/World Relief Fundraiser

Prospect’s 5th graders and teachers read aloud the book, Refugee, by Alan Gratz when participating in the 2018-2019 Read Aloud. Refugee tells the stories of three different child refugees in different points in history.  The 5th graders are now trying to make a difference by teaming up with World Relief.  World Relief is a nonprofit organization that partners with local churches and community-based organizations across the United States to provide support for thousands of immigrants and refugees who are seeking a place to call home.  This was the perfect organization to partner up with in order to make a difference to families all over the country.  If you would like to help our 5th graders with their project click here.  Thanks for your support!
