Hello PWS Families, 

Happy Friday!  It has been another exciting week at PWS!  This week I was in a class and observed fourth graders during writing.  I learned how well fourth graders can write.  One student was on the ending of the story and I told her to make sure she shares it with me!  I left reading the story right at the climax of the story.  I also learned that some fourth graders do not like it when you read over their shoulder.  Today, was class parent/teacher luncheon which helps our teachers and parents have a chance to talk and share the classroom calendar of events for the school year. Thank you to all the parents for helping with this event.
