December 2, 2016

Dear PWS Families,

We love our professions!  We started the morning in the KPlus room singing and dancing with students!  What could be better!

Congratulations to Mrs. Norfolk’s fourth grade for being the first class to win the fourth grade trophy for excellence in the Dining Room. We can’t wait to see who wins next month.

We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break last week. This week the students came back refreshed and ready to take on this next stretch of school.

PWS Happenings
December Book Display
The book display is all new for the month of December. This month the case contains 21 mystery envelopes. These envelopes will be opened once a day to reveal a new book. This will all lead to the Winter Solstice on December 21st. The book of the day will be revealed each day prior to dismissal. We can’t wait to see which books we will discover next week.

Substitute Opportunities
Are you looking for an opportunity to spend some more time in school? Want to make a little money? Please consider becoming a substitute in our district. The elementary schools in Bedford are always looking for good and dedicated people to serve as subs. If you or someone you know is interested please fill out an application HERE.

Engineer Volunteers
We are looking for a few engineer volunteers to help a PWS student get a prosthetic hand. We are teaming with students at the Academy of Science and Design in Nashua who will meet every Monday from 3:30-4:30. They are establishing a chapter of the E-Nable Organization and will be utilizing 3D printing to make prosthetics. Their hope is to make a prosthetic for any child in NH who may be in need of one. Please contact Mr. Mitchell ( if you are interested or have any questions.

2016 Peter Woodbury School Annual Food Drive
During this time of year we are increasingly aware of how fortunate we are to have good friends, loving families, a place to call home, and food to eat. Unfortunately, we know that so many in our community are not as fortunate, and we feel that there is something we can do to help. Since we know that food banks are always in need of food, Peter Woodbury is holding a food drive for the New Hampshire Food Bank.
Students can start bringing in canned goods, dry goods, and any other non- perishable food items this Friday. Contributions are not required and we are aware that there are so many different ways, events, issues, and causes to donate to and one family certainly cannot do it all. We'll kick off our food drive with a one item small donation this Friday, December 2nd. When 500 kids each do something small it adds up really fast; together we can really make a difference. Next week we'll target items that are of particular need by having theme days (listed below). All nonperishable items are appreciated and accepted. Thank you for considering this important effort and we wish everyone the best during the holidays.

Friday, (12/2) - Any item “Together we can make difference!”
Monday (12/5) - Mac & Cheese
Tuesday (12/6) - Tuna
Wednesday (12/7) - Cereal
Thursday (12/8) - Peanut Butter
Friday (12/9) - Soup
