Hello PWS Families,

We are pleased to say that for the most part our Smarter Balanced Assessments are complete. We still have a few make ups to do but for a majority of our third and fourth graders they are done. We are so pleased with how hard the students worked on these assessments. We wish to extend a special thanks to the students, parents, and other students who made this process run so smoothly and successfully: Thank you all for everything you did!

Lost and Found
A reminder that all Lost and Found is going to be cleaned out on April 22nd (the day before vacation).  If you want to claim any items please do so before that time.

Would you like to know what you can do at home to help your child be as successful as possible at school?  There are subtle changes you may choose to make at home to provide your child with more tools and skills to be successful in life as they grow older.  You may be surprised that those skills can prepare your student to be ready for academics at home and they don’t involve studying!  

The Bedford PTG is sponsoring this event in  the McKelvie Intermediate School cafeteria on April 14th at 6:00pm.  Bedford educator, Rachael Ramsey,  will share some simple and easy changes you can make at home to help a student of any age become more organized and successful during the school day.  This presentation is designed for parents with children of all ages.

Presentation is from 6:00pm to 7:30pm with Q & A from 7:30pm to 8:00pm
