First Grade Winter Concert 2017
A Note From Ms. Margaret Podesta

January 19, 2018

Dear PVES Families,

We have had a very snowy week, but it is ending on a positive note, with a warmer weekend ahead.  I hope that the children had a chance to play outside in the snow on Wednesday.  The winter weather doesn't last forever (I promise!), and outdoor play is so healthy and energizing.

Our Grade 4 Science/Maker Fair will take place on the day and evening of Wednesday, March 14th, and we look forward to helping our fourth-grade scientists prepare for this wonderful event.  Ms. Broas, Ms. Mistretta, and I will meet with the fourth-grade students in the coming weeks to begin to explain the Science/Maker Fair process.  We look forward to all the exciting learning and discovery that will take place, and we expect a great deal of participation!

Report Cards will be available online at the end of the day on Friday, January 26th.  This is the mid-point in the school year.  Report Card hard copies will also be mailed home after that date.  If you would like to discuss your child's progress, please contact your child's teacher directly.  I thank the teachers for all the time they have spent collecting updated learning data on your children, and planning lessons that will continue to support their growth this year.  We have a very skilled teaching staff at PVES, and our high learning standards are evident in all that we do.

As you know, the Fourth Grade Winter Concert will take place on Thursday, January 25th, at 7:00 PM in our Auditorium.  We look forward to this very special performance.  Thank you for being there to support your children's musical talents!

Enjoy the weekend ahead.  Please take the time to read with your child, and be sure to practice those all-important math facts through a game or a story.  Learning can be so much fun!
