Week-At-A-Glance March 31 through April 4

Pequea Families,

Our fifth and sixth graders finished their PSSA tests and our third and fourth grades will be administered the assessments this week. We wish them the best of luck!

April has many exciting events. Baseball season opens and it’s National Poetry Month. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 and don’t be fooled on Tuesday, April 1!

Wolfgang candy orders will also be available for pick-up at school this week. You can pick-up your items on Tuesday, April 1 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm or Wednesday, April 2 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Please plan to spend about 15 minutes checking your order. We apologize for the inconvenience, but items may not be sent home on the bus.

Make sure you mark your calendars with the events listed at the end of the post. Don’t forget that our PTO meeting was moved to Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30 pm in the library. Our PTO is planning events to culminate the school year and your assistance is greatly appreciated to make these events a success! Don’t forget the students are dismissed on Friday at 1:30 pm and there is no AM kindergarten. Have a great weekend, Pequea!
