PWS PrinciPal’s News
This week we were graced with two wonderful performances. First, on Wednesday the 75 members of the Fourth Grade Chorus put on a wonderful show for our delight. Special congratulations go to Mrs. Curran and the chorus for this great event. Then on Thursday, Mrs. Stallone’s second grade class performed a theatrical version of Jan Brett’s The Mitten. Mrs. Stallone and her class worked very hard for this excellent performance. It is events like these that remind us of what a special place Peter Woodbury School is. Speaking of special Peter Woodbury community events, remember to mark your calendars for February 8 so you don’t miss our annual Family Fun Night.
Have a Great Long Weekend,
Cheryl Daley (Principal)

News from PWS
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.
Peter Woodbury's Annual Family Fun Night is taking place on Thursday, February 8, 2018. This year's theme is Family Olympics A Night of Games and Activities.
