The Littlest Christmas Tree

The kindergarten students performed their magnificent musical for a packed house of family and friends. They were adorable in their costumes too! 

Entrepreneur Fair a Success!
  Our Entrepreneur Fair was a huge success! It is exciting to see our fifth graders' pride in their sales of products and services. There is so much value in learning about how to make change when given cash, the economics of supply and demand, customer service, advertising and marketing, profit margins, and price reductions.  Kids especially enjoy learning when they get to practice “real life” skills. There was a lot to be learned from our shoppers’ end, too. Thank you to everyone that was able to help with their small businesses.  Click here to view the complete photo gallery.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus Visit PES!
Each student posed with Santa for an individual picture and had a chance to share with him their Christmas wishes! We are happy that Santa and his lovely wife had time to visit with our students.
