Hello PWS Families,

Many classes had field trips this week that students, teachers, and parents enjoyed. Fourth grade went to The Little Brook School House, third grade went to Mount Kearsarge, and first grade went to Beaver Brook. Many parents came back saying they were more tired than the students.  All the parent help on field trips is very much appreciated and we enjoy having you as part of these experiences.  

Tattle Tale Correction
It was brought to our attention that Marie Russell was misidentified as a Kitchen Paraprofessional in the latest version of the Tattle Tale. Mrs. Russell is actually a Kindergarten Paraprofessional. We are excited to have her, and all the other new staff listed, as a part of the PWS family.

Public Health Information -
While we do not see any need for concern about Enterovirus or Ebola in the Bedford Schools, information is always helpful.  To that end, the NH Department of Health and Human Services held an Ebola and Enterovirus conference call last Friday for town and school officials.  As a follow up, they provided these links for the most up-to-date information on both diseases from the NH Department of Health and Human Services:  

The links contain fact sheets, frequently answered questions (that are updated regularly), videos, etc.

Bedford Ski Program
Bedford students in grades 1–12 are invited to take advantage of discounted ski/snowboard lessons at Pat’s Peak Ski Area in Henniker, NH.  This parent run program is geared to give kids the opportunity to learn to ski and snowboard at a ski area perfect for all levels.  This five-week Friday night program includes 1-hour lessons and free ski time until closing each week and costs less than the price of a regular lift ticket.  Discounted lift tickets are available for students who do not need lessons.  Included in the program is 1 free Bonus day at Pat’s Peak, Cranmore and Gunstock to be used from February 23rd until the close of the 2015 ski season.

The 2015 Bedford Ski Program begins on Friday, January 9th and runs for 5 weeks.  The choice of lesson times is 3:30–4:30 PM or 4:30–5:30PM.  Parents are responsible for providing transportation or arranging carpools. 

Easy online registration.  Go to  Click on “Learn to Ski & Ride Program”, “Register Here”.  The username for the 330 lesson is bedfordski330 and for the 430 lesson the username is bedfordski430.  The password is “carpool”.  More details are available at  Please contact Carolyn John at if you have questions.

Finally, in closing, we want to remind you that we have 14 days until our annual Halloween Parade.  We look forward to you being a part of this tradition.

Take Care,

Cheryl Daley                 Dan Mitchell
