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!
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!

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!
