Kinship Care Support Group

 

Dear Families, 

 We are writing to let you know about the upcoming Kinship Support Group on Tuesday, November 27th at North Pembroke Elementary School from 6:30-7:30 pm.

 This group was created because many children in Pembroke are being raised by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins or other close family members. These “kinship” families often have unique needs that may include physical, medical, social and emotional challenges.

 This support group provides participants a chance to share their personal experiences with others who are in similar situations and are experiencing the same types of issues. The evening begins with families gathering together for pizza in the cafeteria. After eating, adults will meet in a small group for discussion and resource sharing while children participate in activities supervised by YMCA staff.

 If you would like to join, you must REGISTER one-week prior by contacting Cheryl Larson at Cheryl.Larson@Pembrokek12.org.

 

We hope to see you there,

Cheryl Larson, LICSW

Elementary Social Worker

PTO News 

October was a HUGE month for the NPES’s PTO.  Not only did we have the Fun Run but shortly after we had the Halloween Costume Sale. Thank you to Kara Perkins and the parent volunteers who ran the event! Next, we had our monthly PTO meeting with over 30+ parents in attendance. After that was the weeklong Book Fair. Deb Miranda, Alison Joubert, and the parent volunteers helped make it one of our most prosperous book fairs! We did over $13,000 in sales and Mrs. Nugent got a ton of books for the library. We are also very thankful to the parents who donated books to their child’s classrooms! Finally, we ended the month with the Boo Bash. Joanna Binette, Lynda Carey and the dozens of parent volunteers who helped out did it again. The kids had such a great time!! It was such a great community event!  We have such an amazing group of parents! The PTO can’t thank you enough for your time and commitment to the school. We are very grateful for the NPES parents, teachers and staff!! I definitely think November will be a little quieter!
