Pequea Families,

A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction. Some palindrome examples are:

  • Mr. Owl ate my meal worm.
  • Was it a rat I saw?
  • Never odd or even.

This week all of the dates are palindromes!

Dress Code Reminder

Pequea Families,

As the weather gets warmer, we wanted to review the dress code information from the Pequea Elementary School Handbook. Our handbook is listed in sections under the General Information category, and the information posted below is from the dress code link.

Dress Code:

Loose fitting clothing or footwear (including flip flops), which could cause injury, are not appropriate for school. Students not wearing appropriate footwear will have limited participation in outside activities. Shorts should be long enough to reach fingertips when students are standing up straight.  Spaghetti strap shirts and muscle shirts will not be permitted.

Please contact Mrs. Murray with any questions.

April 14 through April 18 Week-At-A-Glance

Pequea Families,

As we approach the end of the school year many exciting events are happening at Pequea. Make sure you’re connected through all of our communication mediums to stay in the loop!.

Next week is National Library Week. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate. We would like to recognize our own special librarian, Mrs. Nadig, as a powerful and positive impact on our Pequea students.

Don’t forget to submit your forms by Monday to participate in Pequea PEP on Tuesday. Our first talent show rehearsal is Wednesday after school for our participants. School pictures are coming up on Thursday, April 24, so schedule those haircuts! Also, school is not in session on Friday, April 18. Has your scientist started working on their project for STEAM Night on May 7th? Report cards will be sent home on Tuesday, April 15.
