Greetings PES family~
Thank you all for a smooth start to the 2nd semester!
A few things as we move into this month:
1."Learning Together" series- Based on your survey responses this fall, we have arranged several online sessions for you to learn more about different topics related to school and your child. Our first one will be next week, January 12. The topic will be Online safety/Technology and Curriculum. This will be hosted by Mrs. Hooks. She will post a link on our PES webpage for you to join. You can tune in at 12:00pm/Noon January 12 OR you can tune in at 6:00pm January 12. We are offering this twice so you can chose the time that works best for you. We would encourage you to participate since technology continues to play an important role in education.

Our next "Learning Together" session is scheduled for Thursday,January 28. The topic will be Assessments. The discussion will include all assessments we administer, when we do this, why we do it and how we use the data collected. Please make plans to attend and Mark your calendars now!
2. Please find attached the Reading, Science and Math Newsletters.
3. Please continue to be the first line of defense at home in checking your child for symptoms before they get on the bus or come to school. Your help in keeping your child home if sick, has been very helpful as we continue to navigate through this pandemic. Our goal is to keep kids engaged and in school. The less chance of exposure, the better for everyone!
4. Our annual PTO Fundraiser will kick off on 2/1/2121! We are asking each student to secure 10 sponsors for $10.00 each. Please start finding sponsors now so that they will be prepared to support us in February. If you work for a business who would like to be a corporate sponsor, please contact our PTO president, Kaila Harris.
You will be able to make donations on Myschoolbucks.com. We will send home more information in a few weeks. We really want this to be a successful effort so your help is greatly appreciated in helping your child secure 10 sponsors now.
Thank you for supporting our Leaders at PES!
