Earth Day Celebration at PVES
A Note From Ms. Margaret Podesta

May 20, 2016

Dear PVES Families,

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the PTA Aloha Fun Fair tonight at PVES! The fun begins at 6:30 PM, and it will run until 9 PM. Each student must be accompanied by an adult, and we welcome you to take part in the activities, raffles, and games. Thank you to all of volunteers who are helping to make this amazing night possible! Enjoy!

All fourth grade families are welcome to attend the Fourth Grade Spring Concert on Monday at 7 PM in the Auditorium. We thank Mrs. Calhoun and Mrs. Bennett for their outstanding efforts with these students, and we look forward to another wonderful show.

This week, our elementary students were treated to live theater in school! Our K-2 students enjoyed a live, musical performance of “Henry and Mudge,” and our students in Grades 3 & 4 were treated to a performance of “Lightening Thief.” We thank the Mrs. Nielsen and the PTA for organizing and providing these TheatreWorks assemblies for us that connect directly with our literature studies. We are so lucky to be able to experience these enriching shows!

Our Character Ed Committee facilitated a wonderful afternoon of Earth Day planting on this past Tuesday afternoon. Please take the time to notice the beautiful flowerpots and colorful gardens in front of our school. Thank you to the parents and students who participated in this afterschool event. Spring has finally arrived!

On this past Monday, each classroom welcomed a surprise reader from our local community for our Community Read Aloud. We thank the many guest readers who took the time to read a story or two to one of our classes, and to engage in interesting discussions about books and reading with our students. It was a very special morning, and we thank Mrs. Dawn Vaccaro for painting a beautiful Community Read poster that was signed by all visitors. As always, Mrs. Vaccaro did an amazing job!

Please be reminded that there is no school next Friday, May 27th and Monday, May 30th in honor of Memorial Day. Please mark your calendars, and enjoy the long weekend!

We will see you at the Fair tonight! It is sure to be a busy, exciting evening!

Margaret Podesta
