Holiday Helper Tags

We have set up our annual Pinnacle Cares event for the Holiday Season in the front office. Our festive holiday tree has Holiday Helper Tags with gift suggestions for children and pets in local shelters around the area. If your family is able to donate, please come grab a tag or two.

Gifts must be turned into the office by December 16th so that we are able to donate them in time to be enjoyed during the holiday season. Please, do not wrap the gifts (you are more than welcome to put your gift in a gift bag).

1970s Day!

Tomorrow is our 70th day of school and we will celebrate across the campus with a 70’s dress-down day and music from the decade.

I know what you are thinking… “Mrs. Fallon, I do not have anything disco-themed in my closet”. Do not worry, my friends, you may have other traditional 1970’s attire hiding in there such as a beloved Star Wars shirt or a favorite Brady Bunch sweater! If you are not sure what to wear, do some online research (with parent support, of course) and we will see you all tomorrow!

We will be keeping the 70’s fun going into the evening with our 70’s Great Skate Night between 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm. Great Skate is located at 10054 N. 43rd Avenue, Glendale, AZ (right across from North Pointe Prep). This event is open to our Pinnacle Pointe and Canyon Pointe students, families, and friends!¬†All students must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

Dinosaurs, Superheroes, Descendants, & More

We had such a great time on campus today with all of our amazing costumes! I was fortunate enough to have some extra help across the campus today with Principal Joshy and Vice Principal Jalen. They even assisted our Starting Pointe kiddos as they walked around the campus in their festive attire getting treats from the teachers.

If you are going out tonight, please have fun and be safe! We will see you all tomorrow!

Social Studies Across Campus

Fourth graders in Mrs. Wernsing’s class recently finished their Social Studies unit on early Native American tribes. After learning about different customs and traditions of various tribes, students created Kachina dolls and dream catchers to celebrate the cultures of the Hopi and Navajo Native Americans. Students enjoyed putting their own personal touch on each of their hand-made creations!

6th grade became paleoecologists last week! They discovered everything about MesoAmerican cultures: the Maya, Aztecs, and Inca. They created a social media campaign to share their findings.
