Dear PWS Families,

It has been a wonderful week at PWS!  Please ask your students about the Zones of Regulation Rap!  Another great story....As I walked around the school yard today a couple of Kindergarten students came up to me and gave me flowers.  This is why I love my job! Thanks for sharing your wonderful children with us everyday!-Mrs. Daley

In order to better organize the messages that are included in this blog we will be using the section headlines that are highlighted green this week. From now on you can expect the blog to start with a quick message from us and then be followed by PWS News, Community Info, and Upcoming Dates.

PWS News
Shopping Rewards
It's that time a year again to help earn money for our school. There are several ways to do this. Two ways to earn money for our school are Hannafords Rewards and Target Rewards. At Hannaford, buy 4 participating products and you will get 3 reward dollars for the school. Take the reward certificate and drop it in the provided box with the school's name before you leave the store. At Target, you can link your credit or debit REDcard on the Target website for the school and every time you use them 1% is given back to the school. 

Box Tops For Education Program!
PWS participates in the Box Tops For EducationTM program - which technically means that we get money for our schools by sending in lots of little teeny- tiny rectangles.  Last year, we earned $2444.80, which went directly to the teachers to purchase items for their classrooms.  The program cuts two checks per school year, and our next deadline is Friday, October 16.

What you can do to help:
1.     Clip and Bring: We encourage you to look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, and send them to school in your children's Go Binders.  (Be sure to also include any special Box Top Codes or Bonus BoxTops!) 
2.     Ask your Neighbors/Family: Send a note out to your neighbors that don't have school-age kids; they may not be aware that they are throwing away money.
3.     Become a BTFE Member: If you become a member on, you can submit PWS into ongoing raffles for more Box Tops, and get exclusive great coupons to products.

Destination Imagination - Parent Info Night
Parent Info Night for Destination Imagination in all Schools K-8th Grade will be held on September 21st or September 24th at 6:30 pm in the Peter Woodbury School Library.   To learn more about the program and how to provide your child with this enrichment opportunity, please come and meet our District Co-ordinator, Marie Russell, in the PWS Library at 6:30 pm.or email Marie at For more information and to find out what Destination Imagination is all about, check out

Trading Cards
Many students like to bring in various game type cards to use at recess time. These cards include Pokemon, baseball cards, and other games. While we allow these cards to be brought in for gaming, we do not allow the trading of these cards. We find that trading always leads to issues. If you allow your child to bring these cards in to school please reiterate this message with them. It is our hope that these cards do not present a problem and can continue to be enjoyed by the students at recess.
