Dear PWS Families,

A special congratulations goes out this week to Mrs. Jess Ferenc who was named the NHAHPERD Elementary Physical Education Teacher of the Year this week. Great Job Mrs. Ferenc, we are so proud of you!!

We had a Veterans Day Tribute on Tuesday afternoon.  We want to thank all the PWS community for the donations.  As a school handed off letter the students wrote to the veterans, had the color guard share what the thirteen folds in the flag represented, said the pledge of allegiance and sang patriotic songs.  We had the honor of having a guest speakers, Mr. Beecher (active duty member) who spoke to the students about how much their donations and letters would mean to the veterans.  It was a heart warming event.  

Parent conferences are in full swing, it has been great to see so many of you coming in to meet with teachers and discuss your child's progress. It is hard to believe that we are already a quarter of the way through the school year.
