Szentesy Squad Farewell

I must say “thank you!!!!!” to my resilient students, their loving families, and a supportive staff for making my first year at Pequea one I will NEVER forget! After a tearful goodbye, I am proud to say these members of the Szentesy Squad are ready for third grade. I learned so much from them, more than they will ever realize. Today’s awards ceremony was very special and encouraging. I miss them already and can’t wait to see all that they will accomplish in the future! Have a wonderful summer, read lots of books, have some fun, and keep in touch please. You are all Szentesy Squad members for life!
Miss Szentesy

Last Day?!?!?!?

I can’t believe the last day is here!  Here are a few reminders:

*Students may need to look for their Chromebook charger or strap.  Thank you for helping to put this in the backpack for Friday.

*Students may need to look for a library book at home.  Thank you for helping to put this in the backpack for Friday.

*There are no meals served at school on Friday.

*Students will receive report cards on Friday.  They will also have the opportunity to meet their new teacher for next year!! (That is IF I let them leave me…)

*Dismissal is at 11:30 (no lunch served).

*I miss these kids already…. <insert ugly cry through a mask here>

Education Station

Please check out this wonderful resource for parents and families at home. I hope you explore these growing links and find these to be useful for you!

(Copied from the Pequea blog)

On May 13th, Pequea’s Education Station was revealed during our Family Instructional Resource Event. In case you were unable to attend, we want to share the incredible resources that are now at your fingertips to continue learning outside of the classroom. The Education Station is a hub for engaging and interactive resources to keep your students learning during summer vacation and into next school year. 

Pequea’s Education Station houses technology, counseling, and parent resources alongside a sensory room, K-2 Reading & Math, and 3-6 Reading & Math resources. This is a growing resource that will be continuously updated as our school year(s) continue. We hope that you can take some time to explore these resources as a family and create a culture of learning outside of the classroom. To learn more about how to access the Pequea Education Station, please watch this brief video tutorial. Have fun learning!

A few reminders:

We will again alter our schedule a bit for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The students in grades 3-6 are working hard on the PSSA testing. The Szentesy Squad just rolled with the changes last week. I know they will be great with it this week as well! Thank you!

Tuesday – Book Exchange, Mystery Reader at 8:00

Wednesday – Book orders for Scholastic are due today (last one of the school year)

Thursday – Virtual PTO meeting at 6:30 pm. Mystery Reader at 8:00 pm

Friday – Early Dismissal at 1:30. Spelling test on lesson 28.


What a great end of the month! We enjoyed honoring our Favorite School Principal today, Dr. Murray! (school principal day is May 1). We finished up the story “Where on Earth is My Bagel?” and enjoyed some bagels smothered in butter (or cream cheese), just as Yum Yung did in the story.

I can’t believe it’s the middle of the last marking period! Please check out the “important dates” tab on this page. I updated them for May.

Next week begins the PSSA testing for students in grades 3-6. To help their testing schedule, our daily routines will be moved around a bit. I know the Szentesy Squad will “go with the flow” and adapt to any changes in the day. Good luck to our older students/friends. We are proud of you!

Do you prefer butter or cream cheese?
Delicious! Thanks Yum Yung for the great idea!

Great day!

The Szentesy Squad had a wonderful day today. Our morning meeting question talked of how we can “feel like the weather.” When do you feel sunny? What makes you feel stormy? Great conversations happening. Then the actual weather couldn’t make up it’s mind either!

Thank you for remembering y our water bottles each day. It’s getting hot!

A few other reminders:
*Spelling and reading and vocab test tomorrow (Lesson 26, “Where on Earth is my Bagel?”)
*Virtual Paint Night is tonight. Thank you Mrs. Steffy, we can’t wait!
*Mystery Reader at 8:00 tonight
*Thank you for charging your Chromebook each night.

*If you drove your child to school with his or her National Symbols project, please ask your child about bringing it home. Some students prefer to NOT bring it home on the bus. The amazing work is ready to go home when you are able to pick it up. Great job all!

Have you heard?

Our school sub sale took place on Monday. It was a great fundraiser for Pequea PTO. Today Parker told us that he and his family took extra sandwiches to our first responder heros. The following picture was posted from the Pequea Police Department (and also on the page for the state Fire Police!). Thank you Parker, Chaynce, and family for supporting our local heros. Your hearts are so big! We are so so proud of you!
