PES Newsletter

Dear PES Families,

Hello, we hope everyone is doing well! Please read our newsletter in full for all of the latest PES news.

Our newsletter can be accessed here.

Thank you for a great first week of 2024! We were so happy to see all of our Panthers back at PES ready to go! We are right back to learning and having fun while doing so. Please be sure to read our newsletter carefully. 

Please check out the PTO corner and our important upcoming events for the month of January in our newsletter. This information can be found below, and we also encourage everyone to like and follow our Preston Panther PTO on Facebook!

We continue to be thankful and grateful to our PES community for the successful launch of our One School, One Book at PES with "The World According to Humphrey". Humphrey is ready for 2024 at PES, and will continue to be in our classrooms, hallways, and other places! Humphrey has quickly become one of our students' favorite friends to check in on! In this newsletter, we have the letter explaining our OSOB program and the timeline for reading the book both at school and at home with your students. The book is now complete, but we encourage anyone who did not read it to use the resources in the newsletter to catch-up!
