Please make sure to link your Food City card with Philadelphia Elementary School by using our school code: PLU#40650 so we can earn Food City School Bucks. The Food Bucks program helps us earn money for school supplies and equipment. When you go shopping, please show the cashier this code and they will link it to your Food City Card or towards your purchase which then carries over to Philadelphia Elementary School. You can also link your Food City Card to Philadelphia School by going to my.foodcity.com. Flyers went home in Purple Folders, but you can always get another in the front office. IMPORTANT: You must link your card every school year, because it doesn’t carry over from year to year.

For the 2013 – 2014 school year, Tennessee children must be 5 years old by August 31st instead of September 30th to start school. In 2014 – 2015, the requirements will permanently change putting the cutoff date as August 15th. If a student is currently in PreK during the 2012-2013 school year, they are Grandfathered into Kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year. They cannot stay in PreK unless they meet the original age requirement.
PHILADELPHIA WARRIORS ARE GOING GREEN!!
Through your recycling efforts, P.E.S. will earn cash or get great deals on products from technology, arts, education, and recreation vendors!
In cooperation with a recycling company called FundingFactory, our school will raise money or earn credits that can be redeemed for much-needed school products from the company’s Rewards Catalog. The qualifying list of used recyclable items includes: Empty Inkjet Cartridges, Laser Printer Toner, Cartridges, Cell Phones, Laptops, MP3 Players, GPS Devices, Digital Cameras, and Headphones
Simply bring to school your used, undamaged, qualifying items and place them in one of two collection boxes located outside the school office and inside the main doors next to the new gym.
Once shipped and received, FundingFactory will determine the value of each item and assign it a point equivalent. The points are credited to our school’s account and can be redeemed for cash or products from the catalog. 1 point = $0.40. ASK LOCAL BUSINESSES, COMPANIES, AND ORGANIZATIONS TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL BY HAVING THEM DONATE THEIR USED ITEMS, TOO!
THE MORE WE RECYCLE, THE MORE WE EARN FOR A GREENER TOMORROW!
