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.

Updated 10.26.18 Witch Way Fun Run 2018

Update on October 26, 2018It looks like the Wicked Witch of the West is playing a cruel trick on us with the weather for the Lurgio Witch Way Fun Run on Saturday, October 27th. Instead of a tornado, we are getting a Nor'easter. In keeping with our theme of more FUN, we have decided to move our fundraiser indoors, which means we have been able to add more games and activities for the whole family to enjoy.
While we won’t be able to trick or trot down County Road, we will be taking our bibbed participants through the school to visit our Halloween-themed pit stops on a journey that culminates in the gymnasium and dining hall with the fun activities of our Witch Way Family Fun Fest. In addition to the costume contest and raffles prizes, we will also have Halloween-themed crafts, inflatable bounce houses, face painting, pumpkin decorating, and so much more!
Schedule of Events:
9:30-10:30Registration and bib/t-shirt pickup (Media Center) 9:30-11:00Halloween-themed Pit Stops Open (Lurgio Hal…

Change to Open House

Peter Woodbury's Open House is on Thursday, September 20th. This year, Mrs. Daley and Mr. Mitchell are asking to meet with parents in the multi-purpose room from 6:15pm-6:45pm. During this time they will discuss Responsive Classroom, student independence, communication, homework and school rules. It is the hope that this time together will provide you some greater insight into our school and maintain the open lines of communication we all value so much.  Any students who attend PWS may stay with their classroom teacher during this time frame (6:15-6:45). Any other children should stay with their parents in the multi-purpose room. 
Parents and students in grades K-2 can visit their classroom and teacher anytime between 5:30pm-6:15pm (prior to meeting with the principals). Parents and students in grades 3-4 can visit their classroom and teacher anytime between 6:45pm-7:30pm (after meeting with the principals). 
We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday, September 20th.
