Dear PWS Families,

Hello! The students have been so excited to get outside this week.  They're enjoying the school yard but are hoping for more snow to play in.  We had lunch with the first graders this week and had an interesting conversation about the difference between food being raw and food being cold.  Then I started to hear stories of some children trying raw spaghetti.  Mixed reviews on if they liked it. Children are awesome!!!!

Text Messaging
On January 16th, the school district activated text messaging as part of our emergency communication system. If you did not receive the text message, please check your Powerschool Parent Portal – Demographic Change link to ensure we have your correct cell phone number listed.  Your updated cell phone numbers will be processed in 24 hours and you will receive an automatic opt in message.  In addition you can opt into receiving text messages at any time by texting “Yes” to 68453 as long as your cell phone number is on file with us.  If at any time, you wish to opt out of receiving text messages, you can reply “STOP” to any message or text “STOP” to 68453.

Deliberative Session
A reminder that the Deliberative Session is on Tuesday, February 3rd at 7:00 pm.  We encourage all parents to attend.  This is a time for Bedford community members to discuss the warrant articles that will be voted on March 10, 2015.
