Dear PWS Families,
Well this certainly was an interesting week. We feel bad about mentioning the fact that we had a full week last week, perhaps we jinxed it. Either way, thank you all for your cooperation with this week. The students handled it wonderfully. Thank you all for your understanding, patience, and getting your children to school.
We are very excited about the upcoming Family Fun Night. The baskets have been coming in and they look great. All of the specifics are being taken care of and we are confident that this is going to be a great event. We can’t wait to see you on Wednesday night.
Please take a moment to visit our school counselor, Mrs. Clark’s WEBSITE. It has been updated and includes some very interesting information related to the impact of school attendance.
