to the Principal's Corner
Dear Pingree Friends and Family,
Since Mr. Groundhog saw his shadow, it looks like we are in for another six weeks of winter.
On February 7th we are hosting “The Brain Show”. It will be held in the Pingree Gym from 6:00- 7:30 PM. All are invited. There is no cost but we are asking people to bring a donation for the food pantry.
On February 14th there will be a half day for all students while teachers and staff attend the in-service. WeyCare will run for the entire afternoon. Please be sure to sign your child up in advance and provide them with a lunch on that day.
Our winter break begins on February 20th with students returning on the 27th. I hope everyone uses this time to connect with your child whether it’s inside reading or sharing a favorite video together or outside sledding, your child will love every minute that you spend with them.
Kindergarten registration for the 2017-18 year will run from March 1st to March 3rd. If you have a child entering school in the fall or know of someone who does please call the school so we can send out the appropriate information.
We will have a third and fourth grade concert on March 6. Parents and guardians of our third and fourth graders are invited to attend the show at 9:45 AM.
I would again remind parents to be sure your child is properly dressed for the weather. I know students don’t always agree with what parents think they should wear but it’s important that they are dressed appropriately in order to go outside for recess. If you find yourself unable to provide warm clothing or your child please contact me and the school will try to help.
