August 7th is here and school is back in session. The staff members at PES are so excited to be back with our students!! We are looking forward to a wonderful year. We've added some great teachers over the summer. In 4th grade, we've added Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Thomspson, and we convinced Mrs. Homesley to come back to us. In 5th grade, we've added Mrs. Winstead from Trenton who will be team teaching with Mrs. Cate. We've also hired Mrs. Ridgeway as our new full-time guidance counselor. We also have Nurse Gulish as our new nurse. August is a busy time of the year and we have lots going on with PTO this year. Monday, Aug. 11th is the first day of our PTO membership drive. Please join and be a part of our PES family. Monday, Aug. 18th is the first day for parent invitation to eat lunch with your child. Tuesday, Aug. 19th in the first school-wide PTO meeting. Be looking for a flier to come home to get the time for that meeting. Thursday, Aug. 28 will be the 3rd grade strings orientation night from 5:00-7:00. If your child is interested in starting in the PES strings program, please come and gather all the important information from Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. Stubblefield.
