Hello PWS Families,

I would like to take a minute to welcome back PWS alumni and welcome new parents.

It has been an awesome first week of school.  We have gone around to talk to the students about the PWS mission words: Community, Inspiration, and Engagement.  The students are so great.  Here are some of their answers to who inspires them: my mom, my dad, my grandma, brothers and sisters,  pets, songs, Legos, Dustin Pedroia, and, my favorite, a tree. 

Calling All Smiley Faces
Peter Woodbury Picture Day is September 9. Forms were sent home with students today. Please be on the lookout.

Update on PWS Gardens
During recess, some of our third graders volunteered and collected 24 pounds of produce from the Daly Garden and it was donated to CareGivers, Inc.

Masterpiece Mystery Theater 
Please mark your calendars:
Friday, November 14th

We're excited to share with you how the Bedford Education Foundation (BEF) partners with the community to open doors of opportunity for students to help ensure a strong future. We know that it takes many people with a shared vision to help create positive transformation. And when that happens in individual students or in groups of students, it’s magical! Helping people assist students in need, connecting passions with possibilities, and creating lasting legacies…these are the things that drive the BEF. Please browse our Web site to discover areas of interest that stir your heart. Feel free to contact the Foundation to find out more. We always enjoy sharing success stories and helping educators and students follow their dreams.
Who We Are
The Bedford Education Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and non-partisan organization whose mission is to support academic excellence of the Bedford, New Hampshire public schools by raising and providing funds for the benefit of its students.
Consistent with this mission, the BEF will raise monies from individuals and businesses through an annual appeal and community events, and channel these funds back to the schools through a grants program. Teachers, staff and administrators will be able to apply for grants from the BEF each year.

School Messenger
Just a reminder to all parents; the School Messenger System will call home if your child is absent from school.  Even if you have called ahead of time to let the school know about an illness or vacation school messenger will still make these calls automatically.  School messenger begins calling at 9:30 everyday.  If your child arrives at school after 9:30 school messenger will call your home.

  • In a shelter
  • In a motel or campground due to the lack of an alternative adequate accommodation
  • In a car, park, abandoned building, or bus or train station
  • Doubled up with other people due to loss of housing or economic hardship
then any school-age children in the family may qualify for certain educational rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act. For details, please contact Mr. Mitchell.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us.  Have a fantastic long weekend!
