Thank you for coming to Open House to see the classrooms, talk with the teachers face to face, mingle with parents, enjoy the school grounds, and participate in the Book Fair. It was a night that reminded us all of how school is supposed to be and that our school community is strong.
This is a busy week here at PVES! On Monday the Book Fair opens for before and after school visits. Monday night I’ll be reading some of my favorite picture books to help kick off our Read-A-Thon.
