Dear PWS Families,
Please remember next Tuesday is Family Fun Night. Each grade level team is working hard to make sure it will be a fun filled night. Basket wrappings are happening today and the students are going to be very excited about the choices they have!
Important Announcement- Online Report Cards for Quarter 3
We are excited to announce that beginning this quarter, we will be publishing student report cards online in the PowerSchool Parent Access Portal. As a district, we are continuously working to improve efficiency, reduce costs and provide more timely reporting to parents.
For quarter 3, parents will receive a printed hard copy of the report card in addition to online access to the report card. The final quarter 4 report card will be published online only. You will notice that the report card format has changed. The new improved design has been simplified and you will be able to print a copy of the report card directly from the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
If you do not already have a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, we urge you to create one as soon as possible. If you already have an account, no further action is required. A letter will be sent home in the near future that provides the information needed to create your PowerSchool account and link your account to your child. Once your account is setup, you will continue to use this same account each year to access your child’s information.
No Chorus This Week
Due to Family Fun Night, chorus will be cancelled on Tuesday, March 29th. Students will need to make other arrangements for the afternoon.
We will have a quick recess rehearsal at 12:00 on Monday, March 28th to review our pieces so we don’t miss another week of rehearsal.
Scholastic Book Fair
The book fair still needs additional help from Volunteers for this year’s book fair. Please consider volunteering. Link below:

Our 4 Rising Stars teams did an amazing job and our 3 competitive teams all placed, receiving certificates at the Award Ceremonies. We are so proud of these super creative kids and are most grateful to the adult volunteers for giving of their time over the past 4 months.
BHS Student Project
Hello, my name is Maryam Abdi. I am a senior here at Bedford High School. My Senior Project deals with children, and how media affects children’s lives. I would like to ask parents with children from grades one, two and three if they may fill out the following form about their children's media habits. I am doing this survey so I can compare a small sample of students from the Bedford School District to a larger survey that was taken from my research. Thank you for reading this over. Here is my link to the survey: http://goo.gl/forms/6WikFKx41W
