Hello PWS Families,

Student stories of the week....
One Kindergartener came to the office to get a bus note signed and said, "Ms. Levesque said I am awesome!"  Mr. Mitchell and I received letters from third graders this week. One stated that she "knows Mrs. Curran because she was her ballet teacher when she was little and also she is her dentist." Who knew she was so multi-talented.  One first grade classroom is working on impulse control.  When the child was reading a Garfield comic he commented on the fact that Garfield was using impulse control by holding his arm to not eat the cheesecake. 

Fourth Grade Chorus
Congratulations to all the fourth graders chorus participants.  As always their performances were amazing.  A special thank you to Mrs. Curran for all the hard work and bring out the talent out in the students.

Student Workbooks
As the end of the school year approaches many parents begin to ask, "What can I do to keep my child's skills sharp over the summer?"  We are once again offering a resource to help practice skills learned this year. Tri-C Publications publishes workbooks called Summer Skill Sharpeners for grades K-8, in mathematics and language arts.  These workbooks are good, quick ways to review what was learned throughout the school year. Since these books are meant to reinforce skills learned during the school year, it is recommended that your child's current grade level be ordered. 
If you wish to order any of these workbooks please click here to complete the order form. Then, send in a check made out to Peter Woodbury School.  Each book costs $17.  All orders and money are due by Wednesday, June 4th.
If you'd like more information about the books, you can visit Tri-C Publications' website at
Junk in the Trunk Sale
This Sunday from 10:00-2:00 at BHS lower parking lot Mrs. Armstrong's first grade and Mr. Pepper's Leadership Class at BHS are teaming up to assist with this community service project. The Junk in the Trunk sale offers you the opportunity to find cheap treasures out of the trunks of participants' cars.  The event will raise money for The Liberty House, which helps homeless Veterans in Manchester.    Please come join us.  You never know what you might find.
