Dear Pinnacle Pointe Academy Family,
Please join us on Thursday, December 7th at 6pm, in room 302, for special presentation from the Arizona Attorney General’s office on Human Trafficking. This presentation will discuss the crime of human trafficking as well as providing National and Arizona statistics. As human trafficking happen in every community throughout Arizona, the presentation will discuss how traffickers find their victims, the intersection of social media and human trafficking, and steps parents can take to protect their children. This presentation will also provide examples of warning signs and what you should do if you suspect someone may be a victim of human trafficking.
This presentation will be extremely informative! Light refreshments will also be served!
Open Enrollment for the 2018 – 2019 school year has begun!
Enrollment packets are located online (goppa.org) or can be picked up in the
front office. If you need assistance with the enrollment process please
contact the school office.
Each year we experience a higher and higher volume of parents
enrolling their children during this time. If you currently have a child who
will be entering kindergarten next year and your plan is to enroll them at
Pinnacle Pointe Academy, we would like to encourage you to do this as soon
as possible so that the spot for your child is not filled. We strongly believe
that much of Pinnacle’s success comes from our commitment to being a
family. We would love to have your child with us next year.
If you have other family members or friends that would like to attend
Pinnacle next year please encourage them to participate in the open
enrollment process as well (for any grade) as spots are limited.
Thank you again for all of your support and being a part of our
Pinnacle Family. All of us at Pinnacle are looking forward to an amazing
second half of our 2017 – 2018 school year.

Mrs. Grobnagger’s first grade class has been learning about life cycles. They have been growing caterpillars and they have now become beautiful butterflies. They have set them free to live in their natural habitat.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to our annual Veteran’s Day assembly! Our classes honored Veterans through poems, songs, skits, and readings. Congratulations to C.C. who won the annual Veteran’s Day Essay contest!

Our sixth graders worked on a fun group math project. They applied the concepts of mean, median, mode, and range to complete a multi-step real world project that involved counting skittles and gathering data from several groups of students. At the end, they created a graph to record the information they gathered. It was fun to see them focus so intensely and work cooperatively to gather data while working with candy!
On Tuesday, fourth graders in Ms.Wade’s class wrapped up their Plant unit by dissecting a flower. During the unit, students learned how flowers reproduce. In this activity, students were challenged to locate and examine the petals, stamen, pollen, pistil and stem. It was a fun, hands-on learning experience!
Dear Pinnacle Pointe Families,
