Family Night will be held Thursday, March 7, from 5-7 p.m at Pagosa Springs Elementary School. The Partners In Education Committee (P.I.E.) has organized the evening. The Mad Scientist, a Denver-based performance, will be in town to present “Spin, Pop, Boom,” a chemistry show that will also encourage getting a charge out of reading and inspiring brain power. The 50-minute show will begin at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.
The "Story Laboratory Book Fair" will be open as well. The elementary school has been hosting a book fair since 1982. The fall Book Fair netted the school $2,138 in cash and over $670 in books for the school library. Proceeds from book fairs are used for reading and educational improvements and to help fund the purchase of necessary unbudgeted supplies for the school. The goal this year is to build and replace chapter book collections for classroom libraries and to purchase a portable stage. We still need community volunteers to help with the Book Fair running through March 14th. You can help for as little as 1/2 hour and make a BIG difference - CLICK HERE for details.
English Language Learner (ELL) students and their families are given a special invitation to attend a Bingo session. Bobbie Lassman, ELL instructor, hosts the event for families to get to know one another and realize that there are many students and families working to learn English.
A delicious and nutritious homemade dinner will be served in the cafeteria. All families are invited to the school for an evening full of “laboratory” fun, to shop the Book Fair, and to enjoy a meal together.
There will also be an opportunity to see the proposed first section of the Town of Pagosa Springs "Town to Pagosa Lakes Trail". Keely Whittington will have renders of the proposed trail and your feedback is welcomed.
If you are interesting in volunteering at the Elementary School, please contact Lauri Heraty at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add you to our monthly P.I.E. (Partners in Education) newsletter of opportunites for becoming involved. There are so many ways to help; some involve interaction with the kids, but many hands are needed for things that don't require working directly with children. There are copy room opportunities, decorating, organizing and more. Back ground checks provided by the school are required for all volunteers.
