Children were able to spend 5 tickets for the opportunity to smash a whipped cream pie in teachers faces. Teachers pictured are Mrs. Lindelow (PE teacher), Mrs. Ronquillo (computer lab teacher), Ms. Farris (Kindergarten teacher) and our administrator even got in on the action! Mrs. Oatsvall, Asst.

Working on the Dream
After reading about Dr. Martin Luther King, watching streaming videos, and taking an oral quiz on his life, the children in Ms. Kloiber's class worked on their own dream.
Ms. Farris’ Kindergarten class participated in a journey on the Mayflower. The students packed their most precious belongings and “set sail” for the New World. Though the journey was treacherous, all returned safely to shore.
Where the Wild Things Are
PES families were invited to Literacy Night on November 8. This year’s theme was “Where the Wild Things Are”. Students were invited to wear their pajamas and participate with their parents in Literacy activities designed by their teachers. A Special treat for the students was Principal Kim Thomas, reading Where the Wild Things Are.
On November 12, PES invited family members of students who serve or are currently serving in the Armed Forces for a special celebration. Kindergarten students from Mrs. Penton, Mrs. Schuessler, and Mrs. Savoy’s classes performed songs using bells. Representatives from each of the First grade classes lead the Pledge. Second Graders from Ms. Barrosse and Mrs. Fry’s classes read a Veteran’s Day poem and our Third Grade chorus also performed.
