Gabriel after cut

Eastside Elementary student, Gabriel Haney, has spent the last three years growing out his hair in order to donate it to help make wigs for cancer patients and other hair loss illnesses. He got the idea after seeing his grandmother endure hair loss from cancer treatments. He wanted to help those like his grandmother. Last week, Gabriel was able to donate almost 16 inches of hair. You can read more about Gabriel's heart-warming story at the Fox 5 link below.

 Gabriel, we are #PSDproud of you!

Superintendent's Message


Reflections of 2019

Don’t blink! The school year is going faster than we can imagine!  Time is a variable that we often ignore until the circumstances of life reminds us. Cherished moments such as birthdays, starting school, graduation, and so many more bring about the realization of time.

We finished our first semester in December, and we are well into our second semester. For some of our students this means they have roughly four months of school left before they graduate high school, while other begin their journey at the next grade level. Let’s remember to not let the fast pace of daily living overshadow the fun and excitement in store for us in 2020.

Please take a moment to look at the Reflections of PSD 2019 for a glimpse into this past year. The district’s growth and accomplishments are a result of administrators, teachers, students, parents and the community working together.  With this collaboration, we look forward to making continued improvements within our district.

For each student and their individual advancement in our Polk School District schools, I am grateful to stand side by side with such committed educators who remain focused on providing the best possible experiences for all PSD students.
