PWS PrinciPal’s News
Once again I am overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity shown by the Peter Woodbury School Family. Today was the last day of our annual Food Drive. In the past week we have filled a large van and three large bins full with 3,400 donated food items. Special thanks to Mrs. Lombo and her class for putting in the work to coordinate this project and load the van on Tuesday.
This morning was our annual Ellis Island Day. This event is the culmination of weeks of hard work by our fourth graders. They were well prepared to experience what it might have been like to be an immigrant in the early 1900’s. It was a very special and meaningful experience for all involved.
Have a Great Weekend,
Dan Mitchell (Assistant Principal)
