MESSAGE FROM MRS. FURMAN
We had a great Open House. Here are links to my video and the special area teachers' video.
If you were unable to attend, please reach out to your child's classroom teacher.
We continue to work with the bus company to get the buses to PES on time and the last 3 days have been much better!
We are all looking forward to seeing you at the Picnic on Monday!

SCHOOL MESSENGER INFORMATION
To communicate important information clearly, efficiently, and effectively to large numbers of community members, Region 15 uses a variety of systems.
School Messenger can contact parents via email, phone calls and/or texts. Communication preferences can be selected by parents/guardians through their School Messenger Account.
Parents/guardians you can receive texts only if you opted in. School Messenger only sends a text once when the system realizes you are a new family. To opt in please send a text message of Y to 67587. This will automatically opt you into receiving text messages.
In general, when we are communicating with you when students are not in school, messages will arrive as email, text messages, and be posted to our website and social media sites.
When students are in our care, we will also include phone calls. Our goal is to communicate with you in passive ways where you have options on how to access messages so when you see a call from our district you know it is of a more pressing matter.
Student Information Form
ADOPT A BOOK
Start the school year off with this great way to celebrate your child's birthday, a special day, or to honor a special teacher. Through the Adopt-A-Book Program, you or your child may choose a book from our selection of new books located in the Media Center.
Once the title has been chosen, a dedication bookplate will be placed in the book.
Your child will also be the FIRST reader to check out the book!
When the book is returned, it will be placed on the library shelves for all the students to enjoy!
Fill out the form linked below and send it to Mrs. Mastropietro in the PES Media Center.
