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.

Special All School Project!

Peter Woodbury Elementary School is coming together to create a river! A river of brightly colored unique rocks designed by each and every student at our school.


This project is inspired by the story Only One You written by Linda Kranz.  Mrs. Beltramo will read  the story to every class during library the week of September 18th.  This story is about a little fish named Adri who is getting ready to head out in the ocean alone.  His parents, in an effort to help guide him, share all the important lessons that they have learned in life such as: “You don’t have to follow the crowd” “Find your own way” Always be on the lookout for a new friend”

Mrs. Beltramo, Mrs. Speaker and Mrs. Hart are asking that each student bring in a special rock that can fit in their fist.  These rocks will be painted at school to represent that we are unique and original.  Rocks that are smooth and flat (such as river rocks) will work best.  Grades 2, 3, and 4 will be painting their rocks in the library after hearing …
