Dear PWS Families,
This week the students had a extreme amount of energy!   When we visit classrooms students are talking to us about many things.  One 2nd grade girl was telling us about how boys are bad and she just tries to ignore them.  During math class, a first grade student was telling us that all he could think about was coloring a picture.  Some fourth grade students at dismissal were talking excitedly about the fact they did not have much homework!   We have even had to sit with some students and showed them how to deep breathe to calm their bodies down.  Our thought is that next week will be even more energetic at PWS!  We know there will be many holiday celebrations taking place in the classrooms,  we are looking forward to seeing many of you!

PWS Happenings
Lost and Found
We had a parent reach out to us to inquire about where the lost in found would go, hoping that some items could be donated to her school.  Well that sparked a quick clothing drive (gently used) for a school in the greater Manchester Area.  We will be collecting clothing up until Wed. Dec. 23rd at 10:00 am.  You are all so amazing we were just in the lobby and the bin is already filled!

PWS-BHS Collaboration
Mrs. Armstrong’s first grade class had the opportunity to collaborate with Mr. Pepper’s World Religion class from Bedford High School.  They worked together to create a digital book based around a tale that teaches a lesson.  The Monkey and the Turtle is just one example of these books.
