April 22, 2016

Dear PWS Families,
Here is a story I have been really excited to write about!  On Friday before the Mother/Son event a Kindergarten girl came up to me and asked, “Why can’t we play dodgeball with our dads?”  I asked her, “How are you going to wear a dress and play dodgeball.”  She looked up at me with great big brown eyes and said, “I can just wear a really short dress.”  We love children!!!
In another story, a first grader asked, “Does being 7 make me young?” The teacher responded, “Yes.” The student seemed disappointed until she asked if her nine year old sister is also young and the the teacher said yes.

PWS Happenings
Mother/Son Event
This event was a big success!  The energy that was in the building on Friday evening was incredible. Mothers and sons participated in dodg ball, a bouncy obstacle course and ice cream sundaes.  What could be better!  A thank you for all the help from parents that made  this event a success.

Here are the first annual Mother/ Son DodgeBall Champions
Kristin D’Urso and Danny Caldwell

Teacher Appreciation Week
The PTG is looking forward to celebrating Bedford School District Staff during National Teacher Appreciation week May 2nd- May 6th.  Happy Vacation Week!!

Girls Inc. Book Drive
Please consider bringing in new or gently used books to benefit Girls Inc in Manchester. Girls Inc is a great foundation  that supports girls in New Hampshire and gives them a positive environment to grow, learn, and become better people. This book drive will help support the IB C.A.S. (Creativity,  Action, and Service) Project of Paige Wallat, Anna Bogursky, and Lilly Heald from Bedford High School. The class that brings in the most books gets an ice cream party, so let’s get collecting and help Girl’s Inc!
