A Pirate Take-over…

Yo ho ho!  Many pirates took over Pequea today as they searched for treasure!  They were very fortunate in finding the best treasure of all….EDUCATION!

A look at Pequea so far….

Wow! What a fabulous start to the school year we have had!  Things are in full swing and students have been working hard.  Already this year we have:

  • Introduced House names to expand on our School Wide Positive Behavior System.
    • Azim (Turkish origin) = Perseverance
    • Amistad (Spanish origin) = Friendship 
    • Hana (Hawaiian origin) = Service
    • Awali (Swahili origin) = Originality (creative & imaginative) 

Have you heard about the end of week Victory Walks? Ask your child! 

  • A building initiative this year is classroom transformations.  Have you seen the Alice in Wonderland room?!  It all started with one teacher, one room and the idea is spreading!  To find out how you can help, contact Mrs. Murray.


  • A huge thank you to some local businesses and individuals who are supported Pequea’s start of year activities :
