ANNOUNCEMENTS & INFORMATION
Over 50 Tardy Students Today! 178 this week!!!
School Starts at 8:55 am. The gates open at 8:40 am and we EXPECT all students to be in line at 8:55 am, ready to walk into classrooms with teachers. We have TOO MANY students arriving to school late. These students are starting their day behind and disrupting the learning environment for everyone. Please plan your morning routines to give your family enough time to get ready, have a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school well before the second bell rings at 8:55 am. It is our job as parents to teach our children the value of education and school. We are not doing that when we cannot ensure they are at school, on time, and ready to learn each and every day. Don’t be late!
Book Fair, VIP Lunch & Open House
Our Book Fair is now OPEN! We are open before/after school, during each student’s Library time and during VIP Lunch. Book Fair will NOT be open during Open House. Plan ahead if you would like your child to have the opportunity to shop for new literature and books at this year’s Book Fair!
Don’t forget to RSVP for VIP Lunch. We need an accurate accounting of how many VIPs to expect. You can RSVP at the following link:

Cupcakes & Birthday Treats
Just a reminder, PES follows the TVUSD Healthy Wellness Guidelines. Cupcakes and other desserts DO NOT meet these guidelines and CANNOT be brought in for student birthdays or classroom celebrations. Please PLAN AHEAD and do not bring these items in to our school. There are plenty of healthy, sweet options that meet the guidelines. Please go online and check out the SMART SNACKS CALCULATOR to make sure what you would like to bring meets our guidelines. If you are at the store, cannot go online, and need a quick idea, Skinny Cow Ice Cream always seems to work! Thank you for your support with this.
It is time to celebrate the very important people in our lives and enjoy an afternoon together. It is VIP Lunch Time!!
VIP Lunch is scheduled for Wednesday, March 20th at each student’s lunch.

After you have RSVP’d, you are ready to join us for VIP Lunch. Please remember, the following important information as you plan for the big day!
- The doors will OPEN at 11:00 am.
- CHECK IN - All VIPs need to check in with your child’s classroom teacher before heading out to lunch. When you check in, you will get a wristband. You need your wristband!
- SAFETY - All VIPs are expected to help monitor student play & safety during VIP lunch. If you leave and your child will stay, your child needs to go back to class when his/her lunch is over. Lunch schedules are posted on the MPR so you know when your child’s lunch is over.
- CHECK OUT - All VIPs need to check out with your child’s classroom teacher before you leave. If your teacher is not in the classroom, please check out in the office.
- BOOK FAIR will be open during VIP Lunch and it will be VERY BUSY. Plan for longer lines and be patient. We’ll work as quickly as we can to help parents & students check out in a timely manner.
Thank you so very much for your support and most importantly, for your RSVP.
We cannot wait to spend this time with you, your child, and your family of VIPs!

We are now enrolling for Session II of Makerspace.
As with the Session I, this club will be hosted by Mrs. Gradstein and Mrs. Eagleton and will provide students with fun and engaging opportunities to use their creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills. Students who participate will be given the chance to invent, build, make movies, and more.
Session II - 4/12, 4/19, 4/26, 5/3, 5/10, 5/17, and 5/24
All sessions will be held on the Fridays listed above from 3:30 - 4:30 pm.
Each session will begin with rules and responsibilities, followed by time to interact, engage, and work with the materials. Each session will conclude with a Student Showcase where parents can come, see what students have been working on, and enjoy the space together.
