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!

Please be sure to download the CCPS App from either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store as soon as possible. CCPS and PES are using our App as our main method of communication. It is a hub for news, posts, emails, calls, and more that enables our families to stay up-to-date on all the latest CCPS news.
