This just in..... PES Math Team takes THIRD place at the Southern Maine Elementary Math League meet held today in Portland.
SAFETY NOTE With the snow melting, sun getting stronger and temperatures rising, the staff and I have noticed that children who are being picked up are not heading straight to vehicles. We think it's wonderful that children are playing outside with friends. However, for safety reasons, I'm asking that parents, grandparents or others who pick up students head out back to our safe and spacious playground. Running around and playing with friends on the front lawn, that is so very close to the road, is extremely dangerous. Again, there are many fun pieces of equipment to use on the playground and even a bench and picnic table for adults who are supervising to sit and visit. Please help us get everyone home safe and sound.
Spontaneously, today we had ponytail day in kindergarten! Next week we're planning "camo" day with the boys.
