Thank you Mr. Collen and Mr. Gable for being our Watch D.O.G.S. today!
Please remember that a note is needed for each day your student will be picked up in car line. The note should include the date as well as the person picking up. Thank you for working with us to make sure every student gets home safely!
Our school is participating in a creative fundraiser with Art to Remember that allows you to purchase keepsake products customized with your child’s art. There are over 50 products and many are less than $15. These make great gifts and a percentage of every purchase goes right back to our school. Go to ArttoRemember.com and enter the online order code shown on your child’s order form or search for your child's artwork. The deadline to order is APRIL 13th. Have fun shopping!
As part of the district’s grade level realignment, first and second grade students will be transitioning to AGIS next year. Starting in the 23-24 school year, Penn London will serve students in kindergarten and first grade. AGIS will serve students in grades 2-5 and the middle school will serve grades 6-8.
To help with the transition to AGIS, first and second grade students will have opportunities during the rest of this school year to go to AGIS, meet the principals, and tour the school. This week first and second grade classes held virtual morning meetings with AGIS classes and got to ask questions and learn about the school! There will also be an information session for parents and caregivers. Please see the flyer below.
Remember report cards are now available in PowerSchool.
Interested in touring the new high school? See the flyer below for more information.
Remember there is no school for students on 4/6, 4/7, and 4/10. There will be no weekly update on 4/7 due to spring break.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Mrs. Hall, Assistant Principal
Students in computer class have been learning many amazing things that are sometimes hard to explain in writing. So, to help you better understand I have created a short video to highlight what we do!
In Kindergarten, students have been working on learning how to code at a basic level. We built up our skills through the last few months and this month, we have finally made our first project about an animal in its habitat. The cool part is that the story is animated!
In first grade we have been intensely investigating sound and light so that we can eventually create a tool that we take outside on the school field to see how far away we can see it and hear it if we were ever lost in the woods. The video that I have included is when we were investigating light.
Second graders have worked from basic coding and now have created a variety of projects including a race, sweep the grid, scorekeeper and finally their own video games.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, I hope that the short video is worth a million! Thank you for checking out what we do here at PLES Computers!
PBIS and Bucket Filling
We did it! PLES students exceeded our bucket buck goal for March earning over 8,000 bucket bucks! Congratulations to all! Students will have extra play time with their class prior to spring break.
As warmer weather arrives, now is the perfect time to review expected bus behaviors with your student. On the bus, students are expected to remain seated at ALL times, keep their hands/feet/body to themselves, be at a volume 1 or 2, use kind words and listen to the bus driver. We appreciate you reviewing these expectations with your student to ensure a safe and pleasant bus ride for all!
