Volunteers Needed for 2019 Family Fun Night

Family Fun Night is an annual tradition at Peter Woodbury School. Not only does it give us all something to look forward to on a dreary February night, it's so much fun to participate in activities with students and their families. There is so much planning that goes into this night from the pizza, to the activities, to the baskets. And this event would not be successful without all of the parents and teachers who volunteer to set up, clean up, serve food, and sell tickets.

Please take a moment to see which slot(s) on Sign Up Genius you can help us fill on February 7th.

Annual Food Drive - 2018

2018 Peter Woodbury School Annual Food Drive
November 26, 2018 Dear Parents,
During this time of year we are increasingly aware of how fortunate we are to have good friends, loving families, a place to call home, and food to eat. Unfortunately, we know that so many in our community are not as fortunate, and we feel that there is something we can do to help. Since we know that food banks are always in need of food, Peter Woodbury is holding a food drive for the New Hampshire Food Bank, as well as the Bedford Community Food Pantry. This year, we will continue to partner with the Bedford Community Food Pantry in providing food for their School Lunch+ program.  This provides backpacks on Fridays with food for students over the weekend. Every other month, our school will collect one particular item for this program.  This month, we are collecting single serving juice bottles (no glass please). (Bedford Community Food Pantry- School Lunch+) Students can start bringing in canned goods, dry goo…

2018 PWS Halloween Parade

We are looking forward to our annual Halloween Parade coming up this Wednesday, October 31. Our morning kindergarteners will have a parade through the school hallways at 10:15. If your morning kindergartener attends afternoon K-Plus, they will also participate in the afternoon parade. 
Our afternoon parade will begin at 1:30. Parents who come to watch the parade (all are welcome) should watch from outside. Cones will be set up so you know where to stand. The student parade will exit the school at the Kindergarten wing doors, proceed down the driveway by the gardens, continue onto the blacktop area, and finally re-enter the school through the front doors. We are looking forward to this event and all the fun and creative costumes we will see.
