Dear PWS Families,

Our Father/Daughter dance last week was a great success.  We had about 450 people in the gym dancing the night away.  Please check out the PWS Facebook page to get an idea of what it was like.  A special thank you to all the parents that made this evening a special event for the daughters and fathers!  As one girl  said, “This was the best night of my life.”

Now some election news: After a week of campaigning, hard fought battles, tough debates, and even a little electioneering, the people have spoken. The turnout was high but the result was resounding. Mr. Mitchell will be dressing up as a FLAMINGO. No details have been set for when this may happen, but rest assured there will certainly be pictures.

PWS Happenings
Jump Rope for Heart
This week in Physical Education class Mrs. Ferenc discussed heart disease to help students understand why they are raising money for the American Heart Association.  Collection envelopes are going home this week March 1-4 and must be returned by Friday March 25.  Online fundraising is much easier and more efficient.  The students don't have to deal with handing in money.  We are  encouraging the students to make web pages by visiting and search for Peter Woodbury School using city and state.  Join our school's team and set up your own Web page to email family and friends.  
Last year PWS raised $13,087  Please help us beat our new goal of 13,200!

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming….
This is an exciting time for students to buy new books to read.  Here are the details:
The fair runs Monday 4/64- Thursday 4/7
Monday and Thursday 8am-6pm
Tuesday and Wednesday 8am-5pm

The theme this year is Book Fair Groovy!

Students will all have an opportunity to preview the book fair during the week with their class and create a "wish list" of books they like.  Parents are welcome any time during fair hours to come to shop for great books.
There will also be a "classroom wish list" for each teacher on display at the fair.  If a parent wants to purchase and donate a book in their child's name to a teacher they can do so at the fair.
We will also have the program "All-For-Books" again this year.  For every dollar donated at the PWS Book Fair, Scholastic will donate a book to a child in need and the monies raised will be used to purchase more books for PWS classrooms.
