2017 Ellis Island Day

Ellis Island Day is the culmination to the 4th grade unit Coming to America. This unit is taught by our enrichment teacher, Mrs. Speaker, with support from each 4th grade teachers. Students find out where their ancestors originated from, they find out more about that country and then take on the persona of an immigrant arriving to Ellis Island from that country in the year 1917.  The experience for students and teachers is one that will not be forgotten!

2017 Peter Woodbury School Annual Food Drive

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 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 kicking it off by collecting juice.  (Bedford Community Food Pantry- School Lunch+)
Students can start bringing in canned goods, dry goods, and any other non- perishable food items this Friday. Contributions are not required and we are aware that there are so many different ways, events, issues, and causes to donate to and one family certainly cannot do it all. We'll kick off our food drive with a one item small donation this Friday, December 1st. When 500+ kids each do something small it adds up really fast; together we can really make a difference. Next week, we'll target items that are of particular need by having theme days (listed below). All nonperishable items are appreciated and accepted. Thank you for considering this important effort and we wish everyone the best during the holidays.

Friday, (12/1) - Any item “Together we can make difference!”
Monday (12/4) - Juice
Tuesday (12/5) - Tuna
Wednesday (12/6) - Soup
Thursday (12/7) - Peanut Butter and Jelly
Friday (12/8) - Mac and cheese

Thank you,
The Fourth Grade Team

Wall of Heroes

The Wall of Heroes is up at Peter Woodbury. Mrs. Beltramo, once again, has done an outstanding job of helping us recognize the veterans in the lives of our Peter Woodbury family. Please take a stroll down the hallway when you are here to remember and honor our veterans. We would also like to invite any veterans in the Bedford community to come to PWS and view the Wall of Heroes.
