Today was Crazy Costume Day! Pinnacle was crawling with cats, Disney characters, princesses, soldiers, superheroes and so much more! What a great day!
3rd grade at PPA has just finished their unit on rocks and minerals. At the end of the unit, the kids were able to rotate through stations that had them exploring, identifying and testing rocks and minerals. The kids had a lot of fun putting their knowledge into use! I guess you could say that they were ROCKING it!
Last week, fourth graders in Ms. Wade’s class wrapped up their Plant unit by dissecting a flower. During the unit, students learned how flowers reproduce. In this activity, students were challenged to locate and examine the petals, stamen, pollen, pistil and ovary. It was a fun, hands-on learning experience!
As part of our Community Week, we were so lucky to have Aidan, from Aidan Cares Organization, come out and speak to us about the wonderful things he has done to help others. He was such an inspiration to our students, we learned so much about him and how we can make a difference! At four years old he told his mom that he wanted to make a difference. At seven years old, he put his hat out and played harmonica, raising $80 which he gave to fight parasites in Africa. He loves music and uses this as his platform for making a difference. He received the Coretta Scott King ANGEL Award in 2015 alongside President Bill Clinton. We are so grateful that we were able to have him come speak to us!
