Dear PGS Community,

This year, we are lucky to be back in the school to be active and involved.  Whether you are at school for recess duty, class parties, secret reader, or perhaps you are a chaperone for a field trip, make sure to have your camera ready and snap some photos! Please upload your children's photos to the link below all year long.

The PGS Spiritware Shop is opening again!

Be sure to check out the site for new additions to the spirit wear apparel which include a quarter zip sweatshirt and cozy flannel PJ pants!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be at PGS next week!!! 

Students will be able to preview the Book Fair, fill out a wish list, and purchase books in school the week of Nov. 14th - 18th.  All Scholastic purchases directly benefit our school by helping support and fund in-school field trips, facility improvements, such as new wooden book carts for housing our library books, as well as author visits. 

How can your family support the Book Fair?

1. Attend one of the after-school family shopping times located at the Music Room/Stage:

Wednesday, Nov. 16th from 4:30 - 6pm 

Thursday, Nov. 17th from 12 - 4pm and 5 - 8pm

Friday, Nov. 18th from 12 - 4pm 

2. Set up an eWallet account for your student!

This is a safe and easy cash alternative to providing your child with funds to use at the Book Fair. You can start an account at the PGS Book Fair homepage at:

3. Shop together online at home and share the above site with family and friends! PGS earns money back on all online Scholastic purchases made between Nov. 14th and Nov. 27th.

Please watch for Book Fair fliers coming home with your children this week!

The Book Fair cannot be successful without the support of our community! There are still a few open slots to volunteer!

Happy Reading and we look forward to seeing you all at the Book Fair!
