Hello PWS Families,
It has been an exciting week at PWS. I was watching Kindergarten students each share something interesting with the class in 30 seconds. If you have a Kindergarten child or have ever had one that likes to talk you know that this task is nearly impossible. Here are some shares they stated, "I made a snowman out of marshmallows", "I have a french braid which, means my aunt who did it is french." and "I am going to tell you about all the things I am going to do over vacation."
Thank you for coming to our Math and Literacy Night! It was great to see so many families participate in this event!
The Invention Convention was on Monday for 3rd grade and some 4th graders. It was a another event that showed how the work of the students, parents and staff at PWS can make amazing things happen. I think you would agree in the fact that we have some current and future inventors in our school.

4th Grade Parents
This year administration and parents are going to try and put together a diversity/cultural day committee of fourth grade parents. The first committee meeting will be March 5th at 12:00. Please join us if you are interested in being a part of this. This year we are going to start off small but plan to make it more of a school wide event in the future.

Shorty's Night is March 6th. If you get dinner or take out, part of the proceeds go to Bedford PTG.
Thanks for continuing to support the PTG.
Family Fun Night
The PWS Family Fun Night is being changed from April 3rd to April 10th. This will be the same time as the book fair. It's going to be a fun filled night so please mark your calendars.
Parents, Staff and Community Members Lynn Lyons LICSW, will be coming to McKelvie Intermediate School Cafeteria to have a book talk on 'Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents'. This will take place on Tuesday, March 18th from 6:30 PM-8:00 PM. Lynn is great presenter that bring anxiety into perspective.
Some Peter Woodbury First graders were lucky to have Bedford High School students read to them in Spanish. This was a wonderful collaborative event.
