Take our Survey!

Before the Pandemic, PTSA was working on a parent survey to learn what is important to our community and Principal Pinza asked us to include some questions based on additional funds that Prospect has a strong possibility of receiving.  Please take 5-7 minutes to give your feedback on what you think is working at Prospect, in our PTSA and where you think both could improve.  Your priorities will help to focus our PTSA efforts and what additional resources the school might be able to provide in the future – when we get back to school.  Take the Survey

LIKE, a Documentary on the Impact of Social Media

Join Us! Tuesday Nov. 12th, 7pm in the Prospect PAC

PTSA Meeting held just before from 6:30-6:55pm 

Join us to watch and discuss LIKE, an IndieFlix Original documentary that explores the impact of social media on our students’ (and our) lives and the effects of technology on the brain. The goal of the film is to inspire and help equip us to self-regulate. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share, and care… but is that what’s really happening?

After the movie, our teachers and a student panel will host a discussion on the effects of Social Media in the classroom and in our students’ lives as described by experts in the field.

Many of our students will see LIKE between Nov. 6-8 with discussion in class, facilitated by their English teachers and Mr. Medina’s Video Production classes.

Reserve your ticket(s)!

Watch the Trailer

PTSA General Meeting will be held from 6:30-6:55pm prior to our screening. Please join us to see what else is happening at Prospect.
