The second way is easier because you don't have to put in a login and password.
Just go to our elementary bulletin, click on ES Library, and then click on Pebblego

Have fun!

Useful links
Check out the new "Useful Links" tab on the left! Quick, easy access to commonly used school resources.
PBS Tickets
When handing out PBS tickets, please write their full name and the reason on the back and explain to the student why they are getting a ticket. During the drawings the students are asked why they received a ticket and some have no clue, some say for finishing my homework, for being good, for walking quietly. These are things that are expected of our students. Tickets should be given to students who have gone above and beyond daily expectations. Also, we've notice some teachers haven't given any tickets because when we are drawing we try to draw one from each classroom and can't find certain teachers. So please be consistent.
Thank you,
PBS Team
Please let the front office know when you have any in classroom activities, concerts, after school activities, etc. There are many phone calls that come through the front office and we do not have the information. This will help us not to disrupt you during classroom instruction.

Thank you
