Dear PWS Families,

Thank you so much for participating in our Back To School Night/Open House.  It was great to see all the students and families.  The students were so excited to show off their school!Please feel free to give us specific feedback on this night by directly sending one of us an email.   

Our fourth grade students had a visit from WMUR meteorologist Kevin Skarupa today. He talked about the water cycle, weather and what it is like to produce the weather forecast.  We appreciate the time he spent answering many student questions.  

Handouts: Youngest and Only
This year we are trying a new way to send home papers.  All papers will be sent home with the youngest or only students in each family at Peter Woodbury School.  Teachers have lists of who gets handouts.  If you have any questions about this please let us know.

Constitution Day
On Wednesday we celebrated Constitution Day.  Every student got to sign the PWS Constitution.  In addition, classrooms reviewed information about the US Constitution and many students dressed in colonial-era clothing.

Other Announcements:
You see the unique and talented individual your child is, and want to give him or her every opportunity to grow,
learn and prosper. The Destination Imagination program not only encourages creativity and self-awareness, but it teaches patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and the collaborative problem solving process.

Destination Imagination's programs teach kids how to work in teams after school to solve hands-on creative challenges and help children improve their self-confidence and communication skills. Our participants form strong bonds with their teammates and often build friendships that can last a lifetime.

  • Kids have fun learning, and many continue the program throughout the remainder of their education.
  • Students who participate in DI learn to focus, behave, think and test well.
  • Participants are able to discover and display their unique abilities and talents in ways they may never have imagined.
To learn more about the program and how to provide your children with this enrichment opportunity, please come to our Parent Info Night and meet our District Coordinator, Marie Russell, in the PWS Library, Thursday, September 25th, 6.30-7.30pm or email for more information.
