Hello PWS Families,

Happy April Vacation!

Half Spirit Week
This week has been a great week.  We got started a little late on Spirit Day!  Wednesday was Boston Strong, Thursday Spring Color Day and Friday Pajama Day!

Secretary/Administrative Day
This week we celebrated National Secretary Day!  Students made the secretary's cards.  Here are some examples of what they wrote:
Thank you for everything you have done.
You call if it's indoor or outdoor recess.  If you didn't we would be playing in zero degrees.  Thank you for doing your part at PWS.  
I hope you have a great April vacation.  

And one of my favorites: I know you do very hard work so you should get a lot of nice presents!

A special thanks to Alecia Assetta and Susan VanArsdell for making our front office a great place and taking great care of the families at PWS.

Art Show
Dear PWS Families,
Thank you for coming to the Art Show and for your support and enthusiasm for our arts program. I wish I could have chatted with every person. I truly appreciate your feedback and interest. 
Thank you to all the volunteers who helped get it all together: our volunteer coordinators; the people who helped me mount work and hang work; the folks who helped me set up and stayed late to clean up, and of course my art club and all the other students who helped me before, during, and after school.
This was truly a community effort. I am so grateful to be a part of this community who embrace and value arts education.
Many, many thanks!
Mrs. Piantedosi

Family Fun Night Survey
We would really appreciate you filling out our quick Family Fun Night survey.  So far we only have 12 surveys back with mixed reviews.  The more parents that participate in this survey the more it will help us plan accordingly for the future.    Please click here to participate.

Moms Do Not Read
Dads this is a great idea for Mother's Day!
PWS is partnering with The Canvas Roadshow for a fun fundraiser this spring.  Social painting is fun and you are able to rediscover your inner artist in a safe place with simple, step by step instructions.

Support PWS and a great local business in a couple of ways.  One way is by painting at The Canvas Roadshow studio, owned by a PWS mom, on May 8th and $20 per painter will be donated to PWS.  The studio is right around the corner from Peter Woodbury on South River Road. The May 8th painting will be The Big Sunflower, a variation on a Van Gogh painting.  You can see the painting and enroll online through their calendar.

Another option is order a Gift Certificate for $45 (to be used on any day), $20 goes to PWS.  Great Mothers' Day or teacher gift idea!  To order, call Debbie at 943.2103 and she will help you.  

Garden Club
Today we were at Garden Club and the students found a grass hopper!  What an exiting moment!  Garden club has been an adventure where students observe, explore and take care of our outdoor learning enviornment.  A previous PWS parent, Anne Southwell has been the leader in running our garden club for many years.  Her children are now in high school.  It is time to hand over this responsibility to a new parent.  We will not be able to run garden club in the future without this parental support.  Please email us if you can help out with this at or

Grandparents Day Reminders-May 9th
