October 27 through October 31 Week-At-A-Glance

Pequea Families,

It was a cold and windy week, but it looks as though nicer weather is on tap for the weekend! Don’t forget that school is not in session tomorrow, Friday, October 24.

Next week is Red Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon Week is observed to promote a healthy lifestyle, drug prevention, and making positive choices. The schedule for next week posted below has the theme for each day.

Please make sure you returned your parent/teacher conference form confirmation to your student’s homeroom teacher. Also, the early dismissals during conference week are posted below in the “Looking ahead” section. If necessary, please make arrangements for transportation and/or childcare ASAP!

There are a few weeks left to donate new socks for Socktober. Are you making soup to keep warm on these chilly nights or are you making snacks to watch the big game? Don’t forget to collect your labels!

Have a great weekend!

Pequea Renovation

Plans for our Pequea renovation are under way!  We are considering two options:

1.  Phased renovation where we would move some classes out and others would rotate around the construction.
2.  Full unoccupied construction project where all students would be divided between schools.
A final decision has not been made yet  but,  we will keep you posted.  We will plan to hold an informational parent meeting by the end of February.
