Happy Friday PWS Families,

We would like to first recognize Mrs. Gordon who has been instrumental in making The Tattle Tale for PWS a success.  Mrs. Gordon is the partnership coordinator who works hard to make The Tattle Tale cost free.  We really appreciate all her effort on this!

Thank you to all the families for the support with the PTG Meadow Farms Fundraiser. 

As you may remember, a few weeks back we let you know that all mass calls from the school would display a 800 number that would be different from the school but allow you to call in and retrieve the message. This system is now up and running. Any voice messages sent using the system will display a caller id of 855-344-6323. Parents will be  able to dial back the 800 number and replay the message very easily.

The Bedford Fire Department's Annual Open House is Tuesday, October 8, 2013 from 5-8pm at the Bedford Fire Department, 55 Constitution Dr.  This is a great opportunity for families to spend an evening of fun and learning with the Bedford Firefighters.  There will be fire truck rides, demonstrations, food, and displays.

Today, the first and second graders attended an education session with members of the Bedford Fire Department in the Safety Trailer.  The Fire Fighters highlighted kitchen safety, living room safety and bedroom safety.  Students got to practice staying low to the ground when a room is smokey.  Please ask you child about this experience.  

Yesterday, we had bus evacuations.  The students did an excellent job at exiting the bus quickly and quietly.  These drills are done twice a year, once in the fall and again spring.

Next week we will begin the NECAP state assessment on Tuesday for 3rd and 4th grade students.  Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a healthy breakfast.  We appreciate your help with this.  On Monday, the kindergarten, first, and second grade students will hold a NECAP Pep rally.  This is a school wide event where we come together as a community to help review the strategies that are helpful using when taking a test.  The younger students get so excited about cheering on the older students.  Last year, on the way out of the Pep rally, a couple of students said, "Mrs. Daley, I can not wait to take the NECAP." 

Finally, in recognition of Veterans Day, Mrs. Beltramo is collecting photos of veterans for our photo gallery, American Heroes: Our Service Men and Women, that will be hung in the hallway.  Please send these pictures to by Oct. 18th.  If you have a loved one who is or was a member of this elite group we ask that you please share a photo so we may include them. Please include your name, the student's name, teacher's name, and as much information about the veteran's service as you can provide. This gallery will be available to view after November 1. Any questions can be directed to Mrs. Beltramo (622-0431 ext. 4214).

Thank you for all of your continued support!
Mrs. Daley                   Mr. Mitchell
