PES Newsletter 10/1/21


It was great to see so many parents come to the Room Parent meeting this week!

I also want to thank the PES PTO for the coffee and baked goods! The entire staff loved and appreciated the gesture!

Library News!

All students have checked out at least one book from the Media Center. Library books are due back the next time that your child has a Media Special. If students forget their books on the day of their special, they will not be able to check out a new book.

The Media Center will hold "Open Check Out" for all grades on Days 1, 3 and 5 from 9-9:20am. This gives students who have either finished their book early OR forgotten their book an opportunity to return and shop for a new book. Library visits on "Open Check Out" days are at the classroom teachers discretion.

Please feel free to email Mrs. Mastropietro with any questions or concerns.

We continue to implement mitigation strategies we used from last year (e.g. mask wearing, hand hygiene, physical distancing), we will continue to follow the guidance of local and state health officials with respect to keeping our school community safe.

Be on the lookout for detailed updates from Superintendent Smith.
