Parents Night at PES

Last week, the Pelion Elemantary School ASP held a parents night which featured a speaker on gang awareness.

Everyone enjoyed the cookies!
Fourth and 5th grade students have been learning to play the drums and talking about the history of music in western Africa in After School. Their performance was awesome! Here is a brief video of the performance.

Drummers!
Kindergarten, first, and second grades have been exploring African art in After School and created their own versions of some beautiful African crafts!


Inspector D.J. Flores from the Gang Task Force in Richland County was the keynote speaker.
Inspector Flores showed a great presentation on gangs and their impact throughout the Midlands of South Carolina. We all really enjoyed his presentation and learned a lot!
