PAWSitive Office Referrals

#WeCelebrate these Pandas for showing PAWS! Thanks for sharing them with us, we are so proud of them!

Bright Ideas Grant

Excited to win this grant to be able to fund our Read to Them project with 3rd Grade. We hope to try One School, One Book with the entire #PandaFamily next year!

PES Young Authors

PES is accepting original stories written by students in grades K-4 for the Chatham County Schools Young Authors writing program. Each year all student authors are invited to write, publish and submit their own book. Judges from the school staff will read and reflect on each book. All students who submit a book for Young Authors will be recognized during school wide celebrations in the spring. A small number of student books will be selected to be recognized at a district wide celebration at Fearrington Village scheduled for Tuesday, April 9th, 2019 at 5:30pm.


2018-2019 - Submissions Due to the school library by Friday, January 18th, 2019!


Questions or comments should be directed to Karen Jeremiah, PES school librarian, kjeremiah@chatham.k12.nc.us Feel free to visit the library to see examples of Young Authors books from years past. Information page here
