Grade 5 Multi-Genre Projects
This week, our fifth grade welcomed families to view their Multi Genre Fair. Students' projects were on display and were so impressive! Each student chose a topic to research further about and then created a variety of written, creative assignments to show what they learned. Their projects demonstrated their hard work, effort, and passion for their learned topic. Their teachers are beaming with pride!
Wrapping up the school year with lots of fun activities!
First graders enjoyed a visit with Barnyard Babies!
The Pembroke Elementary Band performed at Fenway Park!
The Grade 5 Band performed at the Derby Street Shoppes last week!

Health Services Update
Dear Parent / Guardian:
The last day of school is June 22, 2022. It is our policy to notify Parents/Guardians of students who have medication(s) at school. Medications are not to be stored in the school building over the summer. Medications must be picked up by the last day of school at student dismissal time by a parent/guardian. Medications are not kept for summer programs.
For your convenience, a new medication form can be found on the Pembroke Public School Website under the Health Services Tab (Forms and Information) for the next school year for you and physician to complete over the summer. Medication forms expire at the end of each school year.
Per policy all medication must be delivered at the beginning of next school year by an adult. Medications will not be accepted from students.
Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the nurse. Please disregard if your student(s) do not have medications in school.
Have a nice summer.
