We're trying to get a headcount for adult trivia tomorrow evening at High Side at 6 pm. Details at https://providence.ptboard.com/school/cm?mid=2724

Comment below if you're coming!

Come on down to High Side (4009 Chain Bridge Rd, Fairfax) on February 23, 2020 at 6pm for a fun evening of Trivia with your fellow PES parents. Drink N Think Trivia will be trying to stump us as we enjoy all High Side has to offer.

This was sent out a few weeks ago by the third grade team and I just wanted to share it with everyone. It is an extremely inspirational story about a man born with no arms.

He was raised to believe there wasn't anything he couldn't do and he just found ways to do things differently. His determination and drive are a lesson for us all.

Hi PES Parents,

It appears the PES President Gmail account may have been compromised. I've heard from a number of you today and please know I am NOT requesting any money or payment, or asking you if you have a moment.

I'm sorry for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused, but please disregard anything like this now, or in the future. The PTA will never reach out to you requesting payment in this method at any time.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Stacy Hall, PTA President

The PTA Book Fair begins tomorrow! Sales are Wed and Thurs from 8 am-2:45 pm and Friday 8 am-10:15 am. Don't miss Family Night on Wed from 5-8 pm.

Come visit us during Family Night! Not only can you pick up a new book or two, you can register for Read-A-Thon, cozy up in our book nook area, try out some new moves with Martial Arts on the Go, learn about our new robotics program, get your child's face painted and meet Dog Man and the PES Panther!

Purge your home library before you pick up some new books - you can donate these gently used books to the PES counselors. They will provide books to all PES students at future events!

We are still in need of a few volunteers to help out during book fair. Please visit the Sign Up Genius to fill a few slots on Wed, Thurs and Friday. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a094cafae2da31-book3

Are schools closed because of weather or a teacher workday? Do you need somewhere to leave your kids? Look no further than OSA’s fun-filled activity day camps. Call 703-864-3187 to register!
Does anyone have the link for ordering the sets of school supplies handy? 😆
We are looking for contact information for the Cub Scout troop based at Providence for our current kindergartener to join next year (1st grade). If anyone can provide us a contact we would appreciate it. Our children go to Navy Elementary (people placed), but we want to do scouts in the local neighborhood. We missing the ability to connect at open house, please PM me if you have a lead. The Boy Scout website doesn’t list a Providence troop.
