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!

High Tea, Anyone?

Our Kindergarten classes had a special opportunity to take their learning to the next level with some taste testing!! Mrs. Hooley’s Greek Gods and Goddesses were able to sample some greek yogurt, pita, and delicious butter cookies! Mrs. Brandt’s royal kinders were able to sample some tea and crumpets, while dining with the Queen of England! All in all, everything got two big thumbs up! Yummy!

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!

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!
