Dear Peacham School families and friends,
I hope you enjoyed the long winter weekend and will have lots of family fun over vacation. We're back on March 5th, the day after Town Meeting Day. Don’t forget to attend the school portion of Town Meeting beginning at 10:00am. Come support our school. I hear the lunch is exceptional.
Ms. Ostrander reminds everyone that PES has fun winter equipment to lend out for over the vacation. XC skis and snowshoes can be signed out and returned after the break. Email me at email@example.com to arrange to borrow over
Parent conferences are being scheduled. Have you reserved your day and time? See your teacher to sign up. Remember that Friday, March 14th is a half day with students released at 12:00pm. This year’s NECAP results will be shared in this next report card.
Our Care for Kids presentation was very well attended. (Thank you, Laura Heath and Ramuntos, for providing supper for all!) We met Shannon Hottinger, our Prevent Child Abuse VT representative, who will lead the K-3 classroom lessons beginning after vacation with Rose Sheehan, our guidance counselor. Extra materials are available for folks who missed the presentation. You will all receive the schedule of classes before they begin. As always, I am happy to try to answer your questions or concerns. Just ask.
The Peacham Elementary School annual Report Card is here! Shirley Ryan has once again created a very special keepsake for our community. Get your copy at Town Meeting.
Cheers to all,
