International Delight!

Wow, what an amazing start to our 3rd Compass Week of the year, International Week! Our panthers heard from so many amazing world travelers this morning, all the way from the top of Mount Kilimanjaro to the the bright lights of the Louvre. We are so thankful for the amazing volunteers that have taken the time to come share with us some of your amazing adventures! We can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings!

Did Someone Say Snow?

Yes, you heard it correctly, SNOW…right here at PPA! Kinder through 6th graders, don’t forget to suit up on Wednesday, 1/25, and get ready to play in the snow!! It’s going to be c..c..c..cooooooold, so make sure you bring your gloves and a warm jacket!! After our snow play, we can warm up in the café with some delicious s’mores and hot cocoa! Don’t forget to return your permission slip!

Bread Anyone?

Fourth graders in Ms. Wade’s reading class recently read “The Case of the Gasping Garbage” – a story about a kid that thought some yeast in a garbage can was a monster! Not only did students enjoy the story, but they learned that yeast is used to make bread fluffy and delicious. On Friday, the fourth graders investigated yeast under a microscope, got to watch a loaf of bread bake during class and afterwards, students enjoyed their tasty creation…yum!

Happy 100th Day of School!

Today was kind of a big deal here at Pinnacle! We celebrated the fact that we are now 100 days smarter! Our kinder and first grade classes flooded the campus with baby powder, canes, and sweaters, just look at all that cuteness! Our quick little kiddos were not so quick today, they stayed in character all day, slowly making their way around campus! First grade used their 100 days of learning to use a hundreds chart to make a delicious snack out of 100 yummy treats! How fun!
