Dear P.A.W.S. Parents/Guardians,


I am sitting at my desk and am so pleased to see the SUN peeking through the clouds and shining down on P.A.W.S!  I hope hope we continue to enjoy some sunshine this weekend in celebration of Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend.  There are many great events planned, including a parade and fireworks! Please check out the events calendar at the following link:


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

We are so appreciative to the P.A.W.S. PTO for their tireless efforts to support P.A.W.S. Preschool!  Thank you to PTO President Elizabeth Nelson for her leadership in organizing the Auction Kick-off Event with Wasik’s; the P.A.W.S. PTO Online Auction, and the special P.A.W.S. Family Fun Event after the Auction!  I know there were MANY parents who stepped up to help with gathering items and donations for the auction, and others helped by bidding and bidding!! Thank you to all who supported the auction efforts! We are excited to be able to have Ken the Music Man back next year, due to your hard work and generosity!  The children will all benefit from you wonderful support and we are so grateful to you!


On behalf of all of the P.A.W.S. teachers, I extend a warm, heartfelt thank you, for the lovely Teacher Appreciation Luncheon you provided for the P.A.W.S. faculty and staff, last week during Teacher and Nurse Appreciation Week!  With hearts full and tummies full, we all felt appreciated by your thoughtfulness!
