3rd-5th Grades Parent Meeting
Professional Development – early dismissal
K – 2nd Grades Parent Meeting
Welcome Back PECS Families!
We were incredibly excited to see our students heading back to school on Monday January 9th. We hope you enjoyed your break and had plenty of time to relax because PECS is ready to start the semester off running!
January 10th through 27th our students will be taking part in NWEA testing. Parents, please help your student to understand that even though they do not count for a grade, these tests are important because they help PECS make sure that our teachers are preparing students to succeed academically.
We will take a break from testing on Monday January 16th when we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with our annual Martin Luther King Day Assembly presented by our 3rd through 5th grade students. The assembly will be performed twice, once at 8:45 AM for our Kindergarten through 2nd grade students and once at 9:40 AM for our Middle School students. We highly encourage all parents to join us for this special assembly at the visit their student’s classrooms afterwards during our open house. Additionally, our Kindergarten Team will be hosting a Kindergarten Open House from 9:30-11:00AM so if you know anyone who is looking for a kindergarten program for 2017 please send them our way!
February will be another busy month at PECS while we celebrate Black History Month. On Tuesday February 7th and Wednesday February 8th we will be celebrating the students who obtained honor roll status in Quarter 2. Our 1st through 3rd grade students will be recognized at 8:30AM on the 7th while our 4th through 8th grade students will be recognized at 8:30AM on the 8th. And, do not forget to mark Monday February 20th on your calendar because we would hate for you to miss our Annual Black History Month assembly.
As February turns into March our students will once again enter into testing mode. As the date gets closer we will share with you the details but throughout March and early April students will be taking PARCC tests. While these tests, much like NWEA, are a serious affair, students will be taking a break Friday March 17th to learn more about potential careers at our annual Career Day.
