May 26 through May 30 Week-At-A-Glance

Pequea Families,

Another great week at Pequea Elementary School! Inclement weather forced our third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade team building day into the building, but the students still had fun with the indoor activities. Thanks to Mr. Binkley and the parent volunteers for a successful day.

We hope to see everyone at the Pequea Picnic from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm RAIN OR SHINE! Didn’t purchase a meal ticket? No worries! Bring your own meal or just come to enjoy the fun! This is a great culminating event to celebrate another great year at Pequea Elementary School. If you see a PTO officer or parent that helped make the Backyard BBQ a success, make sure you thank them for their efforts!

Our “Travel the Track” labels competition ends today. Which class will win the popsicle party? Keep collecting your Box Tops, Campbell Soup Labels, MyCoke Rewards, Tyson Chicken Labels, and Turkey Hill Moo Money Caps over the summer! Solicit your family members to collect them, too!

Friday, June 6 is the final day to turn in your BJ’s membership or renewal application. Our PTO earns $5.00 for each completed application. You can download a copy from our filing cabinet page.
