Take a look at the Thanksgiving Day parade bulletin board creation by Mrs. Polizotto's art students. After reading the book Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet, students made "balloons" and "spectators". It looks magnificent! Wishing all of our PES friends and families a Happy Thanksgiving. We are grateful to be part of such a supportive and giving community.
Remember we have half days this week! We will serve a grab and go lunch and dismissal is at noon. Thanksgiving break begins on Wednesday.
Thank you to those of you who participated at the vaccine clinic today. It was a very successful event and your students did great! Governor Mills even dropped by for a special visit to see how brave everyone was. Please note that MidCoast keeps the vaccine cards and consent forms on file and will bring them to the 2nd clinic on December 10th. At that point, vaccine cards will be given to students to take home.
Today RSU 1 hosted a vaccination clinic for students in the RSU and surrounding towns. It went very well and the students were very brave!
