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


Happy June to all of P.A.W.S.!   The preschoolers and faculty at P.A.W.S. are all gearing up for the final days of preschool and want to thank you all for a remarkable year!  I am so impressed by how much the children have learned and have grown this year!


Parent Feedback Survey!  We are so close! We need just 5 more responses!

We have 50 responses so far and need just 5 more families to respond to reach the required 50% response level!  Thank you to those who have taken the time to provide feedback to the preschool in the NAEYC Family Survey!


This survey is a critical component to our NAEYC re-accreditation process, and your input is very important to us!  Kindly complete the survey questions, to the best of your ability, and feel free to add comments, letting us know what we are doing well and where we can improve!  Your voice matters! We will be reviewing this survey with the staff and with the P.A.W.S. Community. Since we are so close to our goal, the survey will remain open until Friday, June 7, 2018.


Thank you in advance for stepping up to help us with this special project!


P.A.W.S. FREE Family Picnic – June 12, 2019 5:30-7:00

P.A.W.S. Cares – Special Request

As you know, the P.A.W.S. Cares Team is comprised of the families and friends of P.A.W.S. who may need a little extra support from time to time, as well as those families who would like to reach out and lend a helping hand from time to time.  We have a request right now for some size 5T summer clothes for a boy. New or gently used shorts, t-shirts, summer PJ’s, and a swimsuit would be greatly appreciated. A gift card to T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Target or WalMart would work well, too.  All donations can be brought to Nurse Ann’s office. Thank you in advance for your caring and support!


Summer Activities Directory

So many parents are looking for fun, safe, and enriching activities for their children in the summer.  We’d like your help to build a directory that will serve as a resources for all of the P.A.W.S. families!  Let us know where your child will be this summer and what kinds of activities he or she will be doing: Art, Music, Sports, Cooking, Dance, Theater, Martial Arts, Farm, Outdoor, Swim, Camp, etc.


Wellesley District BCBA, Dr. Ali Pedego would like to work on putting the directory together with links to websites and resources to share, of the places and spaces you enjoy during the summer with your child(ren).  Please send Dr. Pedego the website link, address, phone number or email address to the places you have your children enrolled this summer or have been in the past. Also, if there are resources or places you go to get connected to other parents and families in the community -like the Wellesley Public Library, or a Mom’s Group on Facebook, please share those, so we can let other parents know about ways to get connected!


Please send your information to Dr. Ali Pedego at pedegoa@wellesleyps.org and thank you in advance for sharing your favorites!
