We Celebrate Success!

Today, we had our second Station of the year and had a blast! Our 5th and 6th grade students are planning and running the Stations this year during Enrichment and our first student-lead Station of the year came together beautifully. Great job, guys!

Each Station features check-ins/updates, a game, and character education which includes  resources from the Be Kind People Project. Each month, we learn an awesome dance move which relates to our trait of the month. Lastly, we celebrate successes all across our campus with Shout Outs!

Today’s Station Shout Outs

Joshy from 5th Grade: “He consistently demonstrates exceptional behavior and participation on campus. Additionally, he had the highest score on our math test this week and consistently achieves high marks.”

Lyndah from 5th Grade: “I have watched her demonstrate kindness to all ages on campus in various ways. Her in-class performance and effort is exceptional.”

Hayden from 1st Grade: “Hayden was our first VIP!”

Amaya from 4th Grade: “Amaya has been on task each and every day and is a great example to her classmates.”

I would like to add a special Shout Out to Ms. deLeon for assisting the kiddos in creating such an engaging and well-run Station.

 

 

Parent/Teacher Conference Sign-ups are Live

Incredibly, we are already moving into our second full week of school and our Panthers have been diving right into the school year. Sign-ups for our Parent/Teacher Conferences on August 29th and August 30th are now active. These conferences offer an incredible opportunity to touch base with your student’s teacher and see how the year is progressing, review benchmark testing data, and discuss observations/goals for the year.

We pride ourselves on our excellent communication at Pinnacle so please contact us sooner if there is any concern/issue you would like to discuss at any time. Furthermore, please feel comfortable requesting a meeting with your student’s teacher at any time (no need to wait for a formal conference).

Please, use the links below or on the website to access the sign-ups for each teacher. Sign-ups will be available until August 26th. After this time, please email the teacher directly to see if there are additional slots available.

DIY Learning Across Campus

This year, we have implemented DIY Learning time to encourage creativity and problem solving in our students. Although our fabulous teachers incorporate Loose Parts and Project Art across multiple subjects within the school day, Friday mornings are a designated time for this hands-on practice!

Here are some of the incredible creations from our first DIY Friday! I am so impressed by the unique structures and solutions that our Panthers came up with to the various challenges posed to them!

Quarter 1 Club Sign-up

In addition to Panther’s Den, our free after school care program, Pinnacle will continue to offer a variety of clubs on Tuesdays – Thursdays from 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm. Please, use the link below to sign-up. Sign-up will be open between August 5th – August 9th.

Once signed up, all payments (cash only) must be made to the front office prior to the first day of the club to secure the student’s spot. Students who do not follow the rules and expectations of each club will not be able to participate and refunds will not be given.
