The month of December is upon us. We've had a wonderful year so far and it's hard to believe that it's getting close to Christmas. That means we are almost at the halfway point with the school year. We have lots of things going on at PES for this month. On Tuesday, Dec. 3rd we have the PES Strings Concert at 6:00 in the KPAC. We will be doing STAR testing on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. On Thursday, Dec. 5th the 5th grade will be taking an educational field trip to the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville to see "A Christmas Carol". If you're a 5th grade parent, don't forget we will be leaving early on that day and getting back late. Students will be taking the 2nd round of the Practice TCAP test beginning on Thursday, Dec. 12th. On Dec. 16th, we will be having the 5th grade Christmas Concert at 6:00 in the KPAC. Our Veazey Vocals will be performing at the Eiffel Gardens on Wed., Dec. 18th at 10:00. Lastly, we will be having an abbreviated day on Friday, Dec. 20. Hope to see you at all these events so your children can highlight all the wonderful programs we have at PES!!
