Principals for the Day

Today, I had the help of two amazing students for Principal and Vice Principal for the Day! These ladies worked so hard all day long including running the Book Fair, assisting with classes across the campus (including Starting Pointe), recess duties, and even some landscape work! Thank you, both so much, Principal Jaylen and Vice Principal Rylie! The extra help today was greatly appreciated 🙂

Dodeca-what? 

Arizona Dodecahedrons!

Students in Ms. Wade’s fourth grade class reviewed all of the material that they learned about our great state when creating Arizona dodecahedron reports. The dodecahedrons (a 12-sided 3D figure) were a blast to put together and turned out absolutely amazing! I was so impressed by the amount of detail put in the reports by each student. Great job fourth graders!

Preschool Principals

Today, I got to visit our preschoolers to share the responsibilities of being an elementary school principal! They all became official principals with lanyards and formal “Principal” ID badges! The students have had all kinds of visitors in the morning and afternoon to share their own careers including a teacher, artist, and postal worker.

If you would like to volunteer and share your own occupation with our Starting Pointe kiddos, please contact the front office or email the preschool director, Mrs. Kopa (skopa@pointeschools.org).

Dental Health

Pinnacle students in kindergarten through second grade learned all about the importance of caring for our teeth and how to keep them clean! We learned all about the 2 rule (we must brush our teeth 2 times a day, for 2 minutes, and visit the dentist 2 times a year) and we learned about our 3 special areas we have to take care of (our gums, our teeth WAY in the back, and our tongue). We had a lot of fun learning how to care for our teeth, thank you West Valley Pediatric Dentistry for taking the time to share these important tips with us!

Famous Times at PPA

Second grade has been working very hard on their biography book reports and today they were able to share all that they have been learning with their classes! The students also had the opportunity to try some astronaut ice cream, wow! Everywhere you looked today, you saw someone famous! Neil Armstrong, Amelia Earhart, Helen Keller, George Washington, and Walt Disney were just a few of the amazing people who made history that we saw walking around campus today!
