It's BOOK FAIR time!!
Yes, it's that time of year again! The Scholastic Book Fair will be returning March 11th-15th. More details about the book fair will be sent out soon, but for now...we'd love your help!
For those parents who enjoy helping out and love books, please consider volunteering your time. We need help with setup on Friday, March 8th, as well as for the entire week of Book Fair. Click HERE to volunteer and HERE to view the Teachers Schedule so you can see when your child's class will be attending the fair. Please understand this schedule is subject to change. Questions? Contact Sherri Stecher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Expanded School Zone!
A friendly reminder from Town of Cary Transportation & Facilities:
Recently, the Town of Cary and NCDOT expanded the Penny Road School Zone to include Ederlee Drive. adjacent to Penny Road Elementary. The expanded School Zone is the first phase of a future sidewalk and mid-block crossing that will be constructed on Ederlee Drive.
The Cary Police Department has increased patrols of this new zone and has notified us that many motorists are not complying with the slower speed limits. They are currently monitoring the situation and have begun to give warnings. After an initial period, the CPD will issue citations. Our priority is to create a safe walking environment for kids walking to school.
For reference, School Zone tickets are hard to fight. They are difficult to get reduced and, in most cases, come with heavy fines. Questions? Feel free to contact Chris Little with the Town of Cary at: email@example.com
We still need your photos for the yearbook!
Contact Mandy Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
