Letter from Sarah
As we head off to Summer 2017, I am savoring the ways in which we closed out a remarkable year of learning, growth and community. Incredible culminating student projects have found their way home, from cityscapes and 3D “Illusion Houses” to inquiry projects and tree of life sculptures. Camping story compilations captured the highlights of this year’s special experience in Primary, and glittery memory boxes transported our youngest students’ hand-knitted boas home for summer dress up fun.
I am also appreciating and turning over in my mind the profound, introspective messages of gratitude that the Class of 2017 shared with us in their graduation speeches on Tuesday. I am reminded by those graduates to thank those who support us along the way. I want to extend my thanks to our staff and our families for all the ways you support all of our children, and each other, throughout our learning journey each year. The final announcement in our last meeting for worship says it simply but clearly: “I really, really like this school.”
I wish you all a wonderful summer, and we’ll see you this fall!
Congratulations to the PMFS Class of 2017!
Your hard work and determination remind us of the solid foundation you’ll continue to build on at your new schools. As Seventh Graders next year, and beyond, we wish you the greatest success and enjoyment.
IMPORTANT and NEW State Immunization Requirements
For the 2017-18 school year, the Pennsylvania Department of Health has updated the immunization requirements for all students. All students will now be required to be up-to-date on vaccines by the start of the school year or risk exclusion from school on day 6 of school! Read the PA New Immunization Reqs 2017 for all the details. Check with your child’s physician if you have any questions.
