March 18, 2015

Dear PWS Families,
Hello!  We hope you are having a great Friday.  The Father/Daughter pictures have arrived. Hopefully, your daughter will be bringing them home today.  We have found a beautiful heart change purse that was left at the dance.  Please claim the purse in the front office if it is yours. The Mother/Son dance is around the corner.  We will be sending information on this home soon!  

PWS Happenings
Sandbox Toys Needed
If you have any old sand toys at home that you would like to rehome, please consider dropping them in the PWS sandbox.  Many of our toys are broken and well worn.  We would appreciate any help with this.

SBAC Testing
Smarter Balance testing began this week for our third and fourth graders.  The students will be taking a Math and an English Language Arts portion of this assessment. Please make sure that your children get plenty of sleep and eat a healthy breakfast, especially on days that they will be testing.
