the PENN NEWSLETTER
PENN PRIDE: we have. we are.
Students: Can you subitize? Subitizing is the ability to 'see' a small amount of objects and know how many there are without counting.
Staff: We had another great afternoon of learning about Math and effective strategies. Each grade level team is choosing a strategy or routine to study. Math instruction will be a focus for our professional development all year.
Info and envelopes about ordering pictures were sent home with students today.
Picture Day is this Tuesday, Sept 25th.
All students have their picture taken.
If you wish to order pictures, the envelope and money must be turned in Tuesday morning.
Panther PRIDE on the march at the Liberty Homecoming Parade
Penn students and their parents or guardians are invited to walk in the parade Wednesday night. We will be meeting in the Liberty parking lot at 5:40. The parade begins at 6:15. Look for the Penn signs and banner to join us. Wear your Liberty or Penn shirts and of course, candy to throw is welcome!
Tuesday we will be meeting at 5:30 at Penn to create signs to carry in the parade. If you would like to join us we would love the help. Please bring poster board and markets if you are able, we will also have some to share.
