Dear Families,

          Thank you for coming to PEP’s last week. We enjoyed meeting with parents

and students to discuss student progress and goals for the school year. It is nice

to see how much work has been completed in the first three months of school!

We had two big events this week, the Book Fair and the Energy Carnival. The Book Fair is always a highlight of the school year. The students loved browsing the book collection and creating wish lists filled with books. Thank you to the families who purchased books for our classroom libraries, it’s a treat to have new books for us to read.

We spent a fun morning at the Energy Carnival held at the Edgartown School. Students got to learn about energy and participate in different activities about energy. It’s a great opportunity for us to learn about different types of energy in addition to being taught by other students. We are thankful to be invited each year.

          A few reminders, we continue to ask you to check your child’s head for lice. Also, please have your child bring a jacket and any winter gear to stay warm as the temperatures have dropped.

          This is our last Weekly Window before the Thanksgiving holiday.  Enjoy the long break next week.  School is out at 12:30 on Wednesday. We look forward to seeing everyone back at school on Monday, November 27th.
