The “Year of the Book”

By Clayton Wood

Next school year will be “The Year of the Book” at PES. Our school is one of two elementary schools in New Hampshire to win a Children’s Literacy Foundation (CLiF) “Year of the Book” grant award for the 2012-13 school year.  The grant will bring $20,000 of resources to PES, including 2,000 books for individual students and families, funds for the school library and the town library, special programming for students, and teacher mini-grant funds for reading work. 

The focus of our work at PES will be improving school-family literacy connections and bumping up the volume of children’s reading in and out of school. Library Coordinator Susan Kinney will be the grant coordinator. The Josiah Carpenter Library will also be working with our school in this exciting grant.  Any parents who would like to help organize are encouraged to call the school and ask for Ms. Kinney or Mr. Kilmister.

Research shows that children are more successful when parents are engaged in the academic development of the child. To assist us in improving student achievement through parental engagement we are asking every family to complete an online Family-School- Community survey. This survey designed to help the school learn more about itself and bring focus to planning for improvement in the area of family engagement. We are looking for 100% participation! (more…)

Parents, we need your help.  Please listen for a call from me this weekend about an important survey, the School Community Index, which will be available on Monday during parent-teacher conferences between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.. The data from the anonymous survey—a version of which will also be given to teachers—will help us build stronger partnerships between school and home.
