We are off and reading with our Read-A-Thon! Today we will cozy up with some good books while we are in our PJ’s! It has been a huge thrill to see parents in the building again. 😊 Thank you for being guest readers and supporting our school-wide RAT. Challenge cards and reading logs are due Wednesday at 3:00. Please check your class newsletter and the PPE website for more details.
In guidance, Mrs. Twitchel introduced the kindergarten students to The Band-Aid Chicken! Ask your child to retell the story to you. We encourage you to talk with your child about the importance of being kind, accepting others, and resisting peer-pressure.
The Percy Priest Glitter Ball is tomorrow, March 5th! This is our biggest school fundraiser! It is also a wonderful way to connect with other families, enjoy a night out, and bid on wonderful items. Bidding on select items for our spring auction is now underway. Place your bid for the Kindergarten Teacher Outing, enjoy takeout with Ms. Temple, have fun sliming Dr. Young, take Percy home for the weekend, and more!
