What's Happening at Peaks

Principal’sNotes                                                                              December 5, 2016

 

Dear Peaks Island Parents,

 

You may have noticed some changes on the outside of our building this week.   Marty and his crew erected our newly painted school sign last week (special thanks to Kathryn Moxhay for all of the behind the scenes work to make this happen).   In addition, Marty and his crew returned on Friday and Saturday and took down much of the chain link fence and posts. Maineline Fencing will be at PIES this Tuesday or Wednesday to install a four foot aluminum fence.  All of this work-- with much more in the plans for the spring and summer-- is the product of a massive island based capital campaign headed by Will Crosby and Ellen Mahoney.

 

Parent Teacher Conferences  Special thanks go to our PTO who providing nourishing and plentiful food for all of the teachers who worked late on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Thank you, PTO!
