Dear Grandparents and GrandFriends,
Thank you for taking time to be with us last Thursday and Friday. Hopefully, seeing your grandchild and special friend at school will want to make you want to visit with us again! If you were unable to attend, you were missed.
For those who came, I hope you could tell the excitement of your visit was felt throughout the entire school! Seeing the smiles on the children’s faces was like winning the lottery. Of course, some were like little jumping beans, unable to contain their excitement.
We will continue to send out occasional emails to you all but if you’d like to receive the weekly emails that go out to our parents that detail everything going on at the school, you can sign up to receive those emails here.
If you were unable to shop at the Roar Store while you were here, you can shop The Roar Store year-round on the PPE website. With the “holidazes” approaching, these items make special gifts. Additionally, as I mentioned last week, there are many ways to help Percy Priest raise funds for the PTO, including those detailed below.
Until I see you again, have a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!!
