Dear Pingree Friends and Families,

As we enter the Thanksgiving season I would like to say how thankful I am to be part of this wonderful community. Raising children takes a village and we are part of a very special one: The Pingree School Community.

We are excited about our first ever Student Council elections being held on November 6 to coincide with the town elections on November 7th. Every class K through 4 will elect one representative to sit on the Pingree Student Council for the year. They will discuss ideas to better bring the R.O.A.R. ideals to our school. ROAR is Weymouth’s town-wide initiative of expected school behavior. ROAR stands for Respect, Ownership, Achievement and Responsibility.  These core values will follow our students right through High School and hopefully the rest of their lives. Our student council members will be students who demonstrate those values every day.

There will be no school on Election Day, November 7, for teachers in-service.  There will also be no school on November 10 in honor of Veteran’s Day. We hope you will take time that day to talk to your child about the servicemen and women who dedicate their lives to protect ours.  Wednesday, November 22 will be a half day to begin our Thanksgiving Break. Please keep in mind that there is no WeyCare that afternoon so the staff can also prepare to celebrate the holiday. There is also no school on Thursday, November 23rd and Friday November 24th.

Pingree Parent Council will be holding a Masquerade Ball for students on Thursday November 9th from 5:30 to 7:30. Information will be sent home. 

I hope everyone has an enjoyable Thanksgiving.

Kathy Guilfoy
