Library Volunteers Needed

We are still looking for library volunteers for Mrs. Lamont’s kindergarten class on Thursdays at 12:10 PM and Mrs. Perkoski’s 5th grade class on Wednesdays at 9:30. Volunteers help children check in, check out, and shelve books. Sign up on our volunteer page.

Movie Night 9/26

Wear your PJs, bring your sleeping bag or picnic blanket, and join us for Despicable Me 2! Pizza, popcorn, and drinks will be available for purchase at 5:45 PM, and the movie runs from 6:15-8 PM. This is not a drop-off event; we ask that parents stay to enjoy the evening and supervise their children. To help us plan food, please return the form that was sent home in your child’s folder.

International Walk to School Day 10/8

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day.  Walking to school gets your brain in gear for the day, helps the environment, and makes it safer for everyone to make their way to school!  There will be music on the big playground and small prizes for Peirce students who walk to school or do laps around the playground.

BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) Activity Program starts 10/7

BOKS, a before school physical activity program, will be offered at Peirce this fall. The program prepares children for a day of learning and helps children gain an appreciation of the benefits of exercise and healthy choices that will last a lifetime. Classes are filled with team-oriented games and provide plenty of opportunity for play, since the program focuses on fun! For more information about BOKS, visit the program’s web site.

A typical BOKS class is 40 minutes long and involves warmup games, running activities, relay races, obstacle courses, strength movements, fun games, and a nutrition component.

BOKS will run every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:20-8:05 AM. The session starts the week of October 6 and ends the week of December 22. To register, download the form, fill it out, and return it to the Peirce office.

Volunteers needed: We currently have enough volunteers to supervise 40 children. If more than 40 sign up, we must divide the children into two groups, each group meeting one day per week, or choose children by lottery. With additional volunteers we can cap the program at a higher number. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please email Angela Snyder.
