May 5 1:00-3:00: Kindergarten Orientation.
Every year, we have a few hours in the spring to welcome rising kindergarten families and provide them information about starting school at PSES. This year, we will do this on May 5 from 1:00-3:00. We are in need of volunteers to help serve the new kindergarteners a snack in the cafeteria and help entertain them with a craft while the parents listen to information and ask questions. If you are interested and available, please contact Carmen Clipper (email@example.com). If you are only available for part of the 1:00-3:00 time window, your help would still be appreciated. Thank you.

Family admission to national parks usually costs $80 for an annual pass, but fourth graders and their families will be able to get a free pass that will give them admission to national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, and other federal public lands and waters…”
