PES is so very proud to be honoring one of our own this year in Relay for Life. Cindy Kelley, a 4th grade para pro, was diagnosed with cancer last year. We join together now to celebrate her life and the courage she showed during her cancer battle. Cindy – you are an inspiration to all of us here at PES!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF THOSE WHO HELPED US HONOR CINDY!
Stephanie came and did 7 hours of Zumba with our
Physical Education Classes. WOW! The students
had a great time, especially Isaiah Word. He got his
groove on and kept up with Stephanie! Isaiah is featured
in the video below.
For the 2013 – 2014 school year, Tennessee children must be 5 years old by August 31st instead of September 30th to start school. In 2014 – 2015, the requirements will permanently change putting the cutoff date as August 15th. If a student is currently in PreK during the 2012-2013 school year, they are Grandfathered into Kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year. They cannot stay in PreK unless they meet the original age requirement.

Through your recycling efforts, P.E.S. will earn cash or get great deals on products from technology, arts, education, and recreation vendors!
In cooperation with a recycling company called FundingFactory, our school will raise money or earn credits that can be redeemed for much-needed school products from the company’s Rewards Catalog. The qualifying list of used recyclable items includes: Empty Inkjet Cartridges, Laser Printer Toner, Cartridges, Cell Phones, Laptops, MP3 Players, GPS Devices, Digital Cameras, and Headphones
Simply bring to school your used, undamaged, qualifying items and place them in one of two collection boxes located outside the school office and inside the main doors next to the new gym.
Once shipped and received, FundingFactory will determine the value of each item and assign it a point equivalent. The points are credited to our school’s account and can be redeemed for cash or products from the catalog. 1 point = $0.40. ASK LOCAL BUSINESSES, COMPANIES, AND ORGANIZATIONS TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL BY HAVING THEM DONATE THEIR USED ITEMS, TOO!
THE MORE WE RECYCLE, THE MORE WE EARN FOR A GREENER TOMORROW!

please use the sidewalk in the mornings to get from the back parking lot to the entrance of the school building/gym near the flag pole.

When your child has received the immunizations please send the new form to your child's school office. Proof has to be provided . If you have any questions, please see Teresa Barton, School Nurse.

SUGGESTIONS WANTEDWe have placed a suggestion box in the front office. Please write down any suggestions that you have in the box. If you are unable to stop by the office, you can place a note in your child’s purple folder. You don’t have to put your name on it, just return it with your comment, and your child’s teacher will make sure that it gets to the front office. With your input, we can enhance the continuous improvement process at our school. PES is continuously developing, implementing, evaluating, and revising school wide improvement and your suggestion will help us in this process.
ACCELERATED READING TESTS
Many parents have inquired about students being able to take Accelerated Reading tests at home. Due to changes in our Renaissance Place program this year, students will only be able to take AR tests at school. Students are given opportunities throughout the school day to take AR tests.
This folder contains weekly grades, newsletters, important school and class announcements, etc. It requires a parent signature and needs to be returned on Tuesday each week.
DAILY AGENDA SIGNATURE
Parents are asked to sign the student’s agenda/planner daily. The agenda/planner is a valuable tool to keep parents informed of what students are learning every day and also to help keep students on track with any homework that might be due the next day.
We welcome visitors to our school. However, please stop by the office to sign in and pick up a Visitor’s Badge. We look forward to meeting you.
