Science Labs K-2 and 3-5

Prisk has two dedicated science lab classrooms.  One for grades K-2 and one for grades 3-5.  All Prisk students attend a weekly science laboratory class where 'Hands on' activities help reinforce concepts studied in classrooms. Laboratory exercises also emphasize science as an inquiry based process. Science fair projects are encouraged for grades K-2 and required for grades 3-5.

Computer Labs

We have two computer labs on campus.  One for students in grades K-2, and another for grades 3-5.  Students attend two 45 minute sessions in the lab each week, where they work on various computer skills/keyboarding skills.  Students in grades 3-5 work on computer skills, SBAC test practice, ST Math, among many other activities.  We are always looking to improve the computer lab experience for our students in the always-changing technological age.

Engineering Labs

Our school has two engineering labs (Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5).  We use the Engineering is Elementary Program.  Students attend lab with their classroom teacher and progress through units of instruction, where they learn about aspects of various engineering fields.  The units incorporate literature, math, and science skills, and include several hands-on learning experiences.  Each unit takes several weeks to complete.  Students can expect to complete between one and three units during the school year depending on the grade level they are in.  Learn more about the Engineering is Elementary Program by clicking the link below.

MIND/ST Math

Our students participate in the MIND Institute Math Program in the computer labs. The MIND Research Institute helps elementary and secondary students to reach their full academic potential through math instructional software and systems.  The institute also conducts basic neuroscientific, mathematics and education research to improve math education and advance scientific understanding.

Student Council

Leadership opportunities are abundant at Prisk Elementary School and participation in Student Council is one avenue many fourth and fifth grade students choose to become involved. These school-spirited students want to make their contribution to our school community and participate in a variety of activities. Students may either run for one of the five elected offices or be selected by their classrooms to serve as a Student Council Representative. The elections, with their poster and speeches - which are now televised on “Prisk TV”- have become quite an event at Prisk.

The Prisk Student Council has a tradition of adopting school-based and greater-community-based projects. Students see firsthand how their efforts and role modeling make a difference. The Student Council often selects innovative projects which target the needs of children.  The Prisk Student Council also visits the Mayor’s office annually.

Student Council elections are held each fall and spring semester to allow many children the opportunity to participate. Each semester the incoming students determine how they would like to serve Prisk School and what their community project will be. Given the enthusiasm of these wonderful and dedicated students, whatever they choose is certain to be a success!

CHORAL AND INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

The district provides on-site instruction in instrumental music for grades three through five. Fourth and fifth graders can also participate in the choral music group.
