|District Calendar Update |
The recent weather patterns, along with predictions of multiple snow storms, have caused the District to move Friday, December 18 to an instructional day for all elementary students. December 18 was originally built into the calendar as a snow makeup day. We have used three of the eight elementary level snow days built into our calendar. This adjustment has become necessary in order to remain in compliance with State statutes and to reduce the chance of extending the school year into June. Please send your elementary students to school as usual on Friday, December 18. We appreciate your understanding.

|The 5th grade classes of Mrs. Shindel and Mrs. Saccuman are again managing the TerraCycle program at PWES. TerraCycle is a company that collects difficult-to-recyle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products. They are eliminating the idea of waste!
PWES receives points for all of the items that are sent to TerraCycle. The 5th graders have decided as a group to use the points that are earned to fight climate change, by supporting Carbonfund.org's innovative projects that are reducing carbon emissions worldwide.
Would you be willing to help the 5th graders by collecting TerraCycle items at home? These items will be collected for the entire school year. When your collection bag is full, please send the items to school with your child, and feel our gratitude!
Thank you for supporting citizenship in our children!
