the PENN NEWSLETTER
WE'RE ALL LEARNING
STUDENTS: February was Black History Month and March is Women's History Month, so students have done research and shared their learning through many different projects. You probably saw some projects in the halls when you were in for conferences.
TEACHERS: We've spent a lot time meeting and talking with adults this week, so we've learned more about your children. During PD on Thursday we worked on learning about and developing plans for math intervention.
PARENT - TEACHER CONFERENCES
THANKS to everyone for the delicious meals during conferences! You are good to us!
- back out of the drive back onto Penn street. This is quick for you, but causes all sorts of problems.
- let your children get out of the car when you are in the left lane
- let your children get out of the car on the driver's side when you are in the right lane
- forget to bring your patience to the car line.
