September 9, 2016

Dear PWS Families,

What a wonderful short week it was. Students returned rested from their extra day off last weekend. It has been great to see all the progress that the students are already making from Kindergarteners learning the routines, first graders working on their letter sounds and second graders catching caterpillars for their butterfly unit to third graders already tackling multiplication and fourth graders experimenting with technology. The school year is already feeling like it is in full swing.

We thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we all learn our new parking lot. One aspect we would like to highlight is parent pick up. Since the parent pick up process can take a little while, we often will have cars arriving, backing out, and leaving all at the same time. We ask that you please be extra mindful of all your surroundings during this specific time. Safety is our absolute priority at this time and we appreciate everyone’s effort towards this goal.

This coming Tuesday night (Sept. 13) is our Annual Open House. We are looking forward to seeing all of you at this special event. The specific times are listed below in the Upcoming Dates section. See you all then!

From the Superintendent
