ASU March on Washington

Our 6th and 7th grade scholars went to ASU’s West Campus for an immersive experience of the March on Washington in celebration of MLK Jr day. They engaged in learning activities about the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s, participated in a mock march through campus, and even got some yummy lunch! The event culminated in an interpretation of Dr. Kings “I Have a Dream” speech by esteemed members of the ASU faculty. Thank you for hosting such an incredible event, ASU West!

Happy Hundred Days of Learning!

Today was our 100th day of school and there were celebrations across the campus! Some students dressed up like they were 100 years old, others wrote about what the world may be like in 100 years, some had 100-themed races, and so much more! I have absolutely treasured every one of these last 100 days and look forward to 80 more fabulous ones to come this year!

There was a Panther who had a Family Night and B-I-N-G-O was its Name-o!

It is time to whip out those lucky hats and baubles because we are bringing BINGO back to Pinnacle! Join us on Friday, January 27th at 5:00 pm for a night of playing BINGO for books!

Holiday Pinnacle Cares Drive

Thank you so much for those of you who were able to contribute to our Holiday Pinnacle Cares drive this year supporting the Arizona Department of Child Safety Toy Drive. Please, see the information which was emailed to us below:

“Thank you contributing to our 2022 Toy Drive. With your help, we successfully collected thousands of toys and gift cards for the children and young adults in DCS care. Over 100 children in kinship foster care settings were able to come to select a special gift for themselves while enjoying festivities and a visit with the big man in red. Please enjoy these photos from the event, featuring our new Thank You board.”
