    All students are invited to take part in the 7th Annual Pierce Downer Haunted House Competition. Students can work alone or with one other student to create their own haunted house. All houses must be based on a SINGLE shoe-box or similar-sized box (WITH NO EXCEPTIONS). Decorations and/or accessories can be store-bought; however, please note that haunted house kits from a store are not acceptable and no sound effects are allowed. Bring your finished house to the LRC starting Monday October 24th. Voting will take place on  Wednesday, October 26th. Please see Ms. Elford if you have any questions.

Welcome to Pierce Downer!

We are PD!

We have unveiled a new theme for the 2016-2017 school year - We are PD!  Click on the "our school" tab above to learn more!

  • We are a "no-food" treat school; as you celebrate your child's birthday, please remember that we do not allow food treats to come to school.
  • All visitors must check in at our school office.  Between 8:20-2:55 only those with scheduled appointments will be allowed beyond the office area.  Thank you for helping to ensure the safety, security, and focus of all of our children!
  • If your child forgets their lunch or another item, there is a table outside of the office door where you can place that item with their name on it.  We are encouraging our students to be in the habit of checking that table for their items during the day.
