To celebrate the Big Game on Sunday, we will be having a special dress down day on Friday, 2/1. Students may wear any appropriate sports attire and jerseys! I will be sporting my Cardinal gear even though we did not make it into the Super Bowl this year! If students do not choose to participate, they may follow the traditional dress code for Fridays.
Next week, students will be participating in our first ever chess tournament! The tournament will be done through an elimination bracket for a chance to win one of two fabulous prizes and the title of “2019 Pinnacle Chess Champion…of the World!”
If your 3rd – 6th grader would like to participate, please ensure they have signed up in the front office!
Second semester Parent/Teacher/Student conferences will take place on Thursday, February 21st and Friday, February 22nd. These conferences present an important opportunity for us to discuss your child’s progress and set specific goals for the remainder of the school year. It is strongly encouraged that you attend with your child.
Students will have early releases on Thursday, February 21st and Friday, February 22nd beginning at 12pm. After 12:30pm, all students who have been previously signed up for Panther’s Den will be welcomed there. As always on Early Release days, the Café will be closed so all students in in Panther’s Den must bring lunch.
For scheduling purposes, all of our teachers will be using the website signupgenius.com to schedule Parent-Teacher Conferences. You can access the electronic conference sign-up by visiting the teacher’s webpage under “Contact/Inform Us” on our website.
A mock disaster drill will be held on our neighbor, Mountain Ridge High School’s, campus tomorrow, January 25th, between 7:30am – 11:00am.
This is not associated with Pointe Schools, however, we wanted to ensure you were aware that multiple fire department trucks and a helicopter are scheduled to be part of the event.
Our Panthers and Lions did an amazing job at their first Soccer game of the Winter Season! We would like to say an extra special “thank you” to our volunteer coaches, Coach Steele and Coach McKay for making this such a successful season!
Fourth graders in Ms. Wade’s class recently read “The Case of the Gasping Garbage” – a story about a kid who thought that 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, students got to watch a loaf of bread bake during class and afterwards enjoyed their tasty creation…yum!
Just a reminder that we will not have school on Monday, January 21st in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We will see you on Tuesday!
