Thankful for Community

It's hard to believe that the holidays are upon us! September and October were a whirlwind of activity at PMES and we had so much fun along the way. We hope you were able to join us for one of our many events and get a feel for the amazing community we have at PMES! We are looking forward to a terrific holiday season as we reflect on how thankful we are for everything PMES has to offer!

Save These Dates!

Our next High Five Friday will be held on November 10th. We need Dads to come give high five, fist bumps and words of encouragement to our students in the bus lane and drop off lanes to get our students' days started off right. This is a fun event with little time commitment and is sure to start your day off right too! Be on the lookout for signups coming soon!


Join us this year as we provide treats for our teachers and staff to enjoy with their families over the holidays! You can drop off STORE BOUGHT baked goods in the car rider line and to the front desk starting Wednesday, November 15th-Friday, November 17th. Teachers and staff will be given the opportunity to choose a treat to take home on Friday, November 17th to enjoy with their families!

REMEMBER-we are looking for STORE BOUGHT, SWEET TREATS for our teachers and staff to take home to be enjoyed with their families over the break. No actual turkeys or specific desserts are needed! Think cookies, pies, cupcakes, sweet breads-anything sweet that you would want to eat for dessert at your Thanksgiving table! Local businesses that offer some yummy options include: Ingles, Publix, Blue Rooster, The Baking Grounds, Crumbl Cookies, and Kroger.

On Friday afternoon, all teachers and staff will have the opportunity to come browse the delicious treats and select an item to take home to share with their families as a way of showing our appreciation for ALL of the time and energy they put into making our learning environment the WONDERFUL place it is!
