Dear Staff,

Welcome back! I hope you had the chance this summer to spend time with family and friends or to do a little traveling. There is nothing more exhilarating than kicking off a new school year.

This year's District Kickoff was the perfect time to reunite with old friends and colleagues, meet enthusiastic new staff members and share our plans for making a difference in the lives of the students we serve.

I am committed to making this the best year yet for the students and staff in the Pendergast District. My promise is to work alongside you this school year as we strive to help all of our students to learn and succeed. We are one team with one dream and we'll be going on this adventure together!

I am here to serve you. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

ESCAPE THE BUS - New for the 2018-19 School Year


“It’s the early 1900s and its time to go to school. You and your school chums would rather be at the swimming hole or fishing or anything else but be in school. The teacher is a strict old bird. She doesn't allow for any messing around. When she takes her morning break under the willow tree you and your buddies figure it’s the perfect time to sneak out but she's got a bell on the door and will hear if you open it. You and your mates have to find another way out before she returns in 45 minutes or you will be stuck here all day doing school work.”


When Dr. Matos DeBlieux had a bright idea to recycle a retired bus with an innovative notion. Why not transform the bus and create the Pendergast Puzzle Escape Room Bus for students and adults to enjoy?

Picture of a pair of jeansThe puzzle is based on a one room schoolhouse that has undergone a complete exterior and interior transformation. With faux brick walls, wood floors, antique design and authentic props, it is sure to spark conversation around the dinner table with grandparents who just may have memories of learning in this environment. As students and their teachers enter, they will be given a perplexing scenario.

You can find out more information about the Pendergast Puzzle Bus, including how you can reserve it for your class (grades 3 through 8), by contacting Amy Christopher at or by calling 623-772-2319.
