The Pershing Elementary Newsletter
Good Afternoon Pershing Families,
The Pershing Staff and I want to extend a huge thank you for all your support throughout 2020. As we near the end of this tumultuous year, we want you to know how incredibly grateful we are for the opportunity to teach your children. Despite the format and challenges of distance learning, there have been many bright moments. For those who have leaned into the challenges with us, we have grown and learned more than we thought possible in this remote format.
The Golden Ticket: For a little fun, we will randomly place 24 Golden Tickets into student materials on January 6th. In each class there will be one winner and there will be one student who will win the Big Prize! Students can only win if they pick-up materials on January 6th, so be sure to make time to pick-up your materials on the distribution date! To help, pick-up hours begin at 7a.m. and end at 5:30p.m. and you can come anytime. Check your materials before you leave because you may be a winner!
Tonight is the final night of our PTO Family Dinner Nights at Old Spaghetti Factory! Be sure to call in your pick-up order tonight and support our Pershing PTO! For more information, please view the flyer below.
