Character Strength: PRUDENCE
Plan for the future and achieve your goals by making careful everyday choices.
Prudence is the ability to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason. It's a future-oriented way of thinking that helps a person set goals, make plans, and have the discipline to accomplish them. It is cognitive - more a strength of the head than of the heart. Individuals with this strength might be described as farsighted, judicious, sensible, practical or careful.
SUPER BOWL LUNCHEON for our SUPER staff!
Our Hospitality team is hard at work planning a lunch for our staff on Friday, February 1st and we need your help to make it super! Please see the Konstella sign and help if you are able to! As always, thank you for your support. The Penny Road staff loves to be treated to lunch!

Family STEM Night!
On Wednesday, February 27th NC State’s Student Engineer Ambassadors will be at Penny Road to bring us a Family Stem Night. The event will be from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Be on the lookout for a volunteer sign up because we will need parents to help with crowd control. There will be a brief General PTA meeting beforehand at 5:30 pm in the Creative Commons.
Save the Date: Penny's Hometown Backyard BBQ Spring Carnival May 17th, 2019!!
Can you believe that Penny Road's famous Spring Carnival is just around the corner? We are so excited to bring back our silent auction this year - bigger and better than ever! We are currently busy soliciting big ticket items, but we need your support. If you have a beach house (or any rental connections), new electronic items, or if you own a business and could help us out, it would be greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible. Have a donation or need more information? Please contact Lindsay Tremelling at email@example.com. Thank you!!!
MORE Homework Resources
Just a reminder that our Homework Resources for Parents page is growing! We now have ELA resources for Grade 3 through 5 and Math Resources for Grades 6 through 8 in both English and Spanish! This is a great way to engage families on how to have conversations with their child around their learning. You can find it by going to Parents, then Homework Resources in the drop down, on either the district site or on our school homepage.
We NEED yearbook photos!
Contact Mandy Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
