PWS PrinciPal’s News
The week before the week before vacation is always a fun and exciting week in an elementary school. Our third and fourth grade students are busily preparing their work for next week’s Inventive Thinking Showcases. Meanwhile, our second graders participated in experiments about temperature while our first graders and Kindergarteners celebrated the 100th Day of School.
Please be sure to check out the new theme of our welcome bulletin board when you come to visit us next. There are some great pictures celebrating the Olympics and our Family Fun Night. Thank you to our PTG volunteers who continue to make this board look wonderful. We certainly are having a Gold Medal Year.
Next week will be our annual spirit week. Even though Monday is President’s Day and many businesses are closed, we have school. Here is a list of the themes for each day next week:
Monday, 2/19- Sports Day-support a favorite team, or wear clothes from your own sports team
Tuesday, 2/20- Teacher/Student swap day-students dress like teachers and the teachers will dress like students
Wednesday, 2/21- Wacky Wednesday-fun clothes, crazy hair, mismatched socks...how will you be wacky?
Thursday, 2/22- Character Day-dress as a character from a favorite book or movie
Friday, 2/23-Pajama Day-come to school dressed in your comfortable clothes. Please remember to wear shoes, not slippers, and be prepared for outdoor recess
Have a great weekend,
Cheryl Daley (Principal)
Dan Mitchell (Assistant Principal)

From the Community
Bedford Early Education Program (BEEP) is accepting registrations for the 2018-2019 School Year. We have space available in many of our 3 and 4 year old classrooms. Please contact Roberta Keane, BEEP Coordinator at (603) 627-1776 x23216 or email@example.com.
BEEP is a regular early childhood program providing the opportunity for typically developing three and four year old children and children identified as having special needs to learn and play together. We believe active participation and concrete learning experiences make learning more meaningful for the children and best serve their development and learning. All the children are provided a multi-sensory learning environment in which they utilize all senses in learning new concepts. Language development and social skills are emphasized throughout the integrated curriculum. Implementation of specialized intervention within natural situations occurs without disrupting the curriculum and educational routines of the classroom.
Classrooms are staffed by certified educators with a background in early childhood and special education. In addition, our staff includes a licensed speech and language pathologist, a speech assistant, licensed occupational therapist, occupational therapy assistant, licensed physical therapist, classroom assistants and a program coordinator. Educational consultants are available as needed. Throughout a BEEP day, each classroom has a teacher and assistant at all times, and other therapists and paraprofessionals may join the classroom periodically.
·Classroom programs for 3 and 4 year olds are provided two, three, four, or five days a week for 2 ½ hours a day.
·The Intensive Needs program offers the opportunity for an individualized self-contained, or partially self-contained program..
·For more specifics, contact the BEEP Program Coordinator.
Morning session: 8:10 to 10:40 am
Afternoon session: 11:40 to 2:10 pm

Snow Day Lunch Info./Announcements
Some parents across the district have asked if there is a rule of thumb when determining the lunch menu on the day following a snow day. There is no rule, as the menu for that day is dependent upon what was on the menu the day of the snow day, what prep the kitchen had to do, and what fresh produce the kitchen had ordered. Therefore, our district’s Food Service Director (Emily Murphy) has decided to provide an announcement on the SAU’s website (www.sau25.net) in the District News box, which will detail, by school, what the hot lunch offering will be the day following the snow day. This information will be available the day of the snow day.
