Annual Food Drive

2016 Peter Woodbury School Annual Food Drive
November 28, 2016 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. 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 2nd. 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…

Mr. Munsey's Rug Art - Updated

A lot has changed since our original post on November 6th about Mr. Munsey, our new night custodian. After doing an excellent job of cleaning the classrooms and preparing/creating a safe & clean learning space for our students and teachers, Mr. Munsey creates a work of art in the rug using his vacuum. He creates excitement in the students, who look forward to entering their classroom each day to see if there is a creation and what it is. 
WMUR aired a few pictures of Mr. Munsey's creations during a weather forecast (you can see the clip below). They received pictures from Mrs. Wyand, who shared them on the WMUR Facebook page.  As you know, that information was then shared on the PWS website and Facebook page. Mrs. Cassamassino then took to twitter with the news. With follow up tweets by Mrs. Wyand and Mrs. Kane.  As a result, Mr. Munsey and PWS have gone viral.  You can find stories on this amazing rug art on Good Morning AmericaInside EditionFox 25 Boston, NBC News in De…

If you still need to set up a parent portal account you can contact the Peter Woodbury School main office for information.

Enabling The Future Prosthetic Project

Enabling The Future Here at Peter Woodbury we have an awesome second grader, Harun, who was born without a right hand. Harun has undergone a number of surgeries to help him, but still does not have the ability to do many things those of us with both hands are able to do. For example, he would love to be able to swing, jump rope, hold a paper for his writing, throw a ball, hold a book, tie his shoe and so much more.
Harun, with the help of e-Nable and students at The Academy for Science and Design in Nashua, will soon be able to do all of those tasks! e-Nable, ASD, Harun and his parents are working together to develop a 3D printed prosthetic hand that will be used just like a typical person's hand. This process is just beginning and we look forward to sharing Harun's journey with the PWS community.
  The e-NABLE Community is an amazing group of individuals from all over the world who are using their 3D printers to create free 3D printed hands and arms for those in n…
