Hi PES Families,
It's the season of love, and I want to express my deep affection for being the principal at PES, where I have the privilege of working with our outstanding staff and wonderful students. We've recently concluded our winter assessments, and I couldn't be prouder of the dedication and hard work shown by both our students and teachers. Next week, we're excited to invite you to our Love of Learning event to celebrate together. Please see the details below.
Additionally, we're reaching out to our families for help in sprucing up our playground. Join us at our upcoming PTO meeting if you have creative ideas or would like to contribute.
Towards the end of the month, we'll be heading over to the high school for a fun-filled evening featuring pizza, games, incredible prizes, and even some math activities! We encourage all of you to come and enjoy the festivities.
On another note, unfortunately, our attendance numbers are currently declining. Presently, only 68% of our students are considered regular attenders, having missed fewer than 12 days this year. While we understand that illness and other factors can impact attendance, our goal is to increase the percentage of regular attenders to 90%.
Let's work together to ensure every student has the opportunity to thrive at PES. Thank you for your continued support we hope to see you all soon!
Shawna Schleif, PES Principal
