School Zone Safety — Starting Monday, March 5

In order to keep our kids safe and to prevent recurring traffic issues, an adult volunteer will be posted at the Newland Road driveway before and after school to enforce the traffic rules.

Please remember:

  • no parking in the fire lane
  • no adults getting out of the cars
  • this is a strictly drop and roll zone
  • if you need to get out of your car to either pick up or drop off a child, then you must go find a legal street parking space

We are looking for volunteers. This is a 15-20 minute commitment during morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up, one (or more) days per week. You can sign-up to help here: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/20F0B4AA5AE2CA02-peirce2

Traffic rules and parking restrictions are in place to improve everyone’s safety. The safety of our children depends on us. With your help we can keep the Peirce community safe! Any questions, contact Marian Hanley (hanleymead@comcast.net)

Peirce Art Show

The ART SHOW will be held on Friday, March 23rd. The Art Show exhibits works of art from Peirce students, staff, parents, siblings, etc. On the night of the show, families can also participate in a variety of arts and crafts. If you are interested in helping us plan, being a volunteer the night of the show, or if you have a great idea, we would love to have your help!  We also plan to have the digital shorts festival again this year so…make a movie, a painting, a drawing, a sculpture or whatever gets you excited about art!

Every year, the kids have a great time and we have fun making it happen! You don’t have to be an artist to help, just willing and able in whatever way you can! This year, we are specifically looking for a couple of parents to take a more active role in helping so that they could potentially take over the show next year with our help! Please contact us ASAP with your interest–this is a great opportunity to volunteer at your child’s school!
