Welcome, New Students

We’re so glad you’re here!
The Welcome Team was started in hopes of greeting and supporting new students and their families as they begin Peirce School.  We know it can be challenging to join a new community and we hope to help make your transition as smooth as possible.  We look forward to meeting you, answering any questions you may have and helping you connect with other families in the same grade as your child/children.  New students and families join Peirce School in kindergarten as well as in grades 1-5, and some enter mid-year.
