Book Bowl News

On Thursday evening, PES's 5th Grade Book Bowl team, “It's the Vibez,” secured the District Championship. In a very tense First Round, the team took the win with a score of 10-9 vs. the Gainfield Butterfly Bookbowl Boys.

Next up was The Winning Readers from MES. The PES team came out on top with a score of 11-8. This team worked and read tirelessly over the past few months as did all of the teams in the district.

Today at PES, we celebrated “It's the Vibez” by letting them walk the halls with the trophy that will now be housed in the PES Media Center until next year! Students from all grade levels joined in the hallways to clap and cheer for them. Later in the day, all team members received medals and trophies.

Congratulations to every single participant!

Artist Corner

First graders had a lot of fun creating masks inspired by Caribbean Carnival. They looked at the Kiddie Parades from last year this time and admired the masks and costumes in order to design their own masks.

Kindergarten through second graders looked at women artists like Catherine Rayner and admired her illustrations of woodland creatures. They created their own watercolor bunny.
