Hello PWS Families,

We are so excited to announce our mascot's new name......The new Peter Woodbury School penguin mascot's name is WADDLES!  I want to thank all the PWS staff that made this voting process such a huge success.  Students were talking about voting in the hallways, at lunch and on the school yard.  We had 283 students vote from PWS.  Thank you to all the parents for helping this happen.  It is never too early to start teaching students the importance of voting.

April Break Opportunity for Kids
Looking for a way to keep the kids busy over April break?  Have your students expressed interest in getting involved in theater?  Registration is still open for former PWS student Emma Benson's senior project, the STAR Program! (Spring Theater Arts Repertoire).  This is a unique opportunity for students from 3rd-8th grade to take master classes in all things theater related, from improv comedy to onstage fighting, audition technique to circus arts.  Students will also be able to participate in a showcase in order to raise money for a Wall of Fame in the Bedford High School theater.  More information can be found on Emma's website:

Garden Club
Getting tired of snow, sleet and cold? Maybe you are ready to think Spring?  Birds, baseball, long sunny days…..and The DALY GARDEN!  For years, PWS has offered garden opportunities in a variety of ways; during lunch recesses, classroom use and Garden Club after school on Fridays.   
This spring’s Garden Club will be broken into two sessions;
4/4, 4/11, 4/18, 4/25,
and  5/9, 5/16, 5/30, 6/6,
Registration for the first session is available by clicking HERE.  Registration is first come, first serve, and limited to 25 students.

Our enthusiastic student gardeners often like to plant gardens at home! If you are a family who has talked about gardening, but you don’t have the space, or building a bed seems a bit overwhelming, we are offering for the first time, Garden Beds for Families.  We will have five beds available for families to “lease” for the summer. If you would like more information about this, please contact Mrs.Beltramo at

PWS Spring Plant Sale and Work Day!
SAVE the DATE…… May 10!!!  The PWS Plant Sale is back by popular demand!  You won’t want to miss our locally grown varieties of annuals and perennials just in time for Mother’s Day.  Shop from 9-11:30 (but the early bird gets the worm) at the PWS multi-purpose room.  Black Gold (Mrs. Beltramo’s famous llama manure) will be available as well!
School Yard WORK DAY…..Also May 10 from 11-2, we will have our School Yard Spring Clean up!...Watch for more information and volunteer signs ups to come out.  Many hands make light work!

Eyes on Owls
Today, the fourth graders participated in an ORK (PTG) assembly, Eyes on Owls.  The presenters adopt and rescue owls and bring them to schools to educate students.  The owls have a physical disability or are raised by humans.  Eyes on Owls is a preview to the fourth graders dissecting owl pellets that directly relates to the digestion unit.

Have a great weekend,
