Pfeiffer is part of the district wide campaign to save energy. To kick off the campaign, the district had a poster contest. Each building participated by having students create posters about conserving energy in our schools. The entries were submitted and a winner was chosen for each building. The winner for Pfeiffer was 5th grader Zoey Hoagland.  Zoey’s poster was one of the finalists for the district. Congratulations Zoey!
