The school year is moving along and we have been keeping busy at Pierrepont School! It is hard to believe that we are midway through the third quarter already.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Read Across America Day on February 27. Eighth grade volunteers served as readers for our fourth and fifth grade classes.

As you know the district buses that were housed at Pierrepont School have been temporarily located to the DPW lot. Mr. Hurley will be meeting with a committee of parents, teachers, and community members to consider a permanent solution. Thank you to the parents who offered their time to serve on the committee.
The Books and Beyond program is moving forward with great success. Students in grades four and five are reminded to continue recording their minutes. Students have until the end of the month to complete their minutes. Mark your calendars for the graduation breakfast that will be held on Friday, April 17.
