Dream Playground Design Update

The Peirce Kindergarten Dream Playground Design Day was a success.  We built a bench, planted some flowers and herbs, and posted our Dream Playground Designs.  We also collected comments and suggestions from community members.  Thank you to the School Committee Member and chair of the Facilities Board Bill Hayner, present and incoming Kindergarteners and families, the Kindergarten teachers for your support and participation.

Plans for a monthly kindergarten playground workday are in the works.  For information and participation email Michele Bazirgan Michele.bazirgan@me.com.

Congrats to the Green Team!

Congratulations to Peirce, and the Green Team for once again winning the Arlington Textile Recycling Competition that took place  among all the schools! Peirce collected 1,160lbs of textiles, which is 3.84 lbs per student! Bay State Textiles is giving the winning school a gift card and the Arlington DPW is giving a matching gift as well! Thank you to the Peirce Community for helping out and to the Green Team for working so hard on helping us reduce, reuse and recycle!!

Mrs. T’s Closed September 4th

Mrs. T’s will be closed on  September 4th after school for the safety of the children due to voting day and early release at 11:15.

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)
