First Grade Winter Concert 2017
A Note From Ms. Margaret Podesta

February 16, 2018

Dear PVES Families,

This is the beginning of a long weekend, with no school on Monday or Tuesday, in honor of President's Day.  It looks like we may get some snow before some more spring temperatures.  Please stay safe and be sure to enjoy the family time.

Thank you to our high school Science Honor students who worked with many fourth-grade scientists on Thursday in order to prepare for the Science/Maker Fair.  We are looking forward to this wonderful event, which will take place on Wednesday, March 14th.  Our students are collaborating, researching, planning, and collecting data.  We are all so excited about our learning in science!

This week, our fourth-grade classes were treated to a very rich assembly on Colonial Music, which supports their history learning this year.  We thank the PTA Arts in Ed Committee for helping to make this possible for our students.  History continues to come alive for our fourth graders, as they start to learn about the Revolutionary War Reenactment Day that they will participate in later this spring.

Valentine's Day proved to be a very festive day here at PVES, and this coming Wednesday, February 21st will be our 100th Day of School!  This special day will be celebrated in our primary classrooms, as it connects directly to the math learning and the base 10 system.  We look forward to the exciting activities and projects on Wednesday!

Please be sure to check the Weekly Attachments for items of interest for you and your child.  Our Character Education Committee is planning a special Support the Troops Assembly in the spring, and we welcome our visitors.

Please be sure to read with your children over the weekend and enjoy sharing in some true quality time.  We look forward to seeing them all bright and early on Wednesday morning!
