Dear PWS Families,

Today was another special day at PWS as we watched the Kindergarten students rehearse graduation. The students in the audience mouthed the words and swayed to the songs.  It was extremely endearing.  We are so proud to be a part of such a wonderful school community.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Program
Superintendent McGee asked that we sent this email to all parents in the District.  It contains a fixed link to the program

Dear Parents,  
I am emailing you today about a serious topic - drug and alcohol abuse.  Bedford Police Chief John Bryfonski and I recently recorded a program on this topic for BCTV. (FIXED LINK)  It was an opportunity for both of us to share our concerns about the impact that abuse can have (and is having) on the people in our community.  
I am asking that you consider watching it.   It lasts 60 minutes and is designed for parents, not children.  Our goal is to promote more discussion of this important issue.
We have also identified a handout for parents.(LINK)  It has some helpful suggestions about how to start talking with your children about drug and alcohol abuse.  Of course, the decisions about if and when to have these conversations is ultimately up to individual parents.  With that in mind, I want to strongly encourage all parents to consider starting sooner rather than later.  
Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.
Chip McGee

PWS School Sign
We hope that you all have seen our new PWS sign at the front of the building.  This was designed by our artist in residence, Mark Ragonese along with third grade students.  A special thank you to Mrs. Piantedosi the art teacher for helping this to happen.  This sign is posted on facebook and the PWS website.

Field Day
Wednesday was the PWS annual field day.  What a wonderful day filled with games, laughter and water.  Mr. Mitchell had his annual soaking by first grade students.  Student council also got an chance to pour a bucket of water over Mrs. Mitchell's head.

4th Grade Mural

Congratulations to the fourth grade students for the mural that was created around the art case.  This was installed over the weekend. Below is a picture of the the 4th grade students and the mural.  

Fairy Festival
Thank you to everyone who made the Fairy Festival possible.  We raised over $3,500 dollars to help sustain our school yard.  Some of this money will go towards improving the walking path.  A special thank you to Mindy Beltramo, Connie Roberge, Kelly O'Donnell and all the other parents/staff that make this event possible.
