Join PMES moms and boys at our Mother Son Night at the Georgia Swarm game on Friday, March 8th!
Our event kicks off at 6:30 where the boys will get to participate in the TEAM TUNNEL as the Swarm players run out on the field. Game time is 7:30 and afterwards the boys will have a MEET AND GREET EXPERIENCE with the entire team!
Tickets for the event are $20 per person and are available at the link below or by scanning the QR code.
Be sure to bring extra cash to purchase entries into our Chuck-A-Ball game! Each ball is $2 and will be thrown onto the field for a chance to win special prizes from the Georgia Swarm. The best part-100% of the profits from this sale will benefit our PTA!
Can't wait to see you there!
PMES will be celebrating Exceptional Children's Week the week of March 11th-15th. Our theme for the week is LUCKY TO BE ME! Our MGC classes (Multi-Grade Classes) will be participating in several fun events throughout the week and we would love for our entire student body to participate with us! We will be holding a Spirit Week all week with Dress Up Days Monday through Thursday (Friday is a digital day). Encourage your students to go all out with their outfits to show their support for our awesome MGC students. All students will be invited to sign our inclusivity pledge during the week which will be showcased in the main lobby. MGC students and teachers will also be making classroom visits to introduce themselves and educate students. In addition, our morning news show will feature guest spots of these students to further our students' understanding of who these students are and how much they add to our school! It's sure to be a fun-filled week that we're LUCKY to all be a part of!
In a continuation of our celebration of Exceptional Children's Week, we invite all of our PMES students to also celebrate World Down Syndrome Day with us on Thursday, March 21st by wearing their favorite pair of CRAZY SOCKS! Every year on March 21st, people all around the world come together to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day by wearing brightly colored, mismatched socks.
Why March 21st? People with Down Syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome.
Why do we wear socks to celebrate? In a karyotype (close up picture of chromosomes), the chromosomes kind of look like colorful socks with stripes and patterns.
As part of our Exceptional Children's Week celebration, we have provided coloring pages at the link below. We would love our students to print their favorite page, color it, and bring it to school to be hung by our Inclusivity Pledge which will be displayed in our front lobby during the week of 3/11. You can access the coloring pages at the link below.
Completed coloring pages can be turned in to your child's teacher or to the front desk.
We hope you will participate with us as we celebrate our differences!
Clean out your closets and donate your used athletic shoes to PMES!
Our Got Sneakers? Campaign will kick off Monday, March 11th! Collection bins will be set out in the hallway near the nurse's office to accept donations of well-worn athletic shoes. PMES will donate all shoes brought in to our partner, Got Sneakers? All reusable sneakers from our sneaker drive fundraiser are recirculated to secondhand markets so people can access quality, pre-owned footwear at affordable prices. All heavily used and damaged footwear is recycled to reuse materials or to convert waste into energy.
Collections will be held March 11th through April 12th.
We will hold a friendly competition between grade levels to see who can donate the most shoes. Each Thursday, we will gather up the collections and post the standings right here on Facebook. The winning grade level will receive a popsicle party! 🏆🎉
All compensation we receive from Got Sneakers? will go toward the PMES PE program.
What are you waiting for? Start raiding those closets!
Take the family out to dinner during the above hours at Old Fountain Tavern on March 13th for a fun filled night of your favorite tunes! A portion of all proceeds from the night will be donated to our PTA. Music Bingo will also be going on starting at 7:30 and is free to play! Grab your friends, enjoy dinner, win prizes and join us for a fun night out!
Calling all Dads! Our Dads on Duty breakfast will be held Tuesday, March 19th and Thursday, March 21st. This event is not grade specific, so feel free to come either day that works best for your family.
Grab your pre-ordered Chick-fil-a breakfast and hear from retired mixed martial artist, former UFC fighter, and PMES dad, Dhiego Lima! Dhiego is the current owner of a local MMA gym, American Top Team-Team Lima alongside his brother, Douglas. He is also the proud parent of a PMES 3rd grader and uncle to a 4th and 5th grader.
Doors will open at 7am. Breakfast is $7 and will include a Chick-fil-a biscuit and your choice of coffee, orange juice or water. The event is free to attend, but all food is PRE-ORDER ONLY and will not be sold at the event. Deadline to order CFA breakfast is 5pm on Monday, March 18th. School breakfast will also be available beginning at 7:45. Breakfast will conclude at 7:45 so kiddos can start the school day.
Tickets will be on sale on our MemberHub site starting Friday, March 1st:

We're grateful for the community we have at PMES to be able to support our teachers, staff and students this way. We truly believe PMES is a special place and it wouldn't be the same without all of you!
