Hello PWS Families,
Happy Halloween!  As you can see below today was a happy time for children and staff!  The spirit we have in this school is wonderful!  

PWS Happenings
Make Life Sweeter Candy Drive
Monday and Wednesday (November 2nd and 4th) after Halloween with the help of a BHS student, we will be conducting a week-long post-Halloween candy drive. All of the collections will be donated to the New Horizons Soup Kitchen in Manchester. New Horizons gratefully uses these donations as dessert when they serve the homeless, and they also pass it along as a night-time treat to those homeless guests staying in the shelter. The goal of the drive is to make life a little sweeter for those less fortunate. All donations can be placed in the marked box in the front lobby which will be collected at the end of the school day on Wednesday.

Veterans Day Celebration
PWS will be having an All School Meeting on Tuesday, November 10th at 1:30 to celebrate Veterans Day.  We would love to involve students' family members that are veterans or active military in this event. Please spread the word, as well, to anyone you would like to attend this event.  More information will be coming regarding signing up.

Please remember to send pictures for the Wall of Heroes!
