STEAM Day...

Please see the picture below with the STEAM Day schedule. Thank you to the Specials Teachers and STEAM Day committee for working so hard to put this on and get it together!

Message from the STEAM Day committee:

Teachers' planning time is when they drop off the students in the gym for the performance. They have an hour of planning. They will be in their rooms the whole day with the exception of the presentation ( their planning), lunch, and recess. Volunteers are coming from United Methodist church with the hopes of every teacher gaining at least one per class. This is not a guarantee. Teachers have been asked to welcome any parents who would like to come volunteer in their child’s classrooms.

Teacher Tip- Feedback for Students

I found this S'more newsletter created by another educator on giving student feedback. For anyone that has been interested, here is the link:

Mac's Monthly Mission...

This is the FINAL week to complete the monthly mission. Please see the details below if you would like to participate.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it is to utilize differentiated math stations (three different times). You have to tweet using- #macsmonthlymission #parkstreetallin and @PSE_Principal showing your students in different math stations (picture or video). Stations must be differentiated (cannot be different worksheets or random activities that are not tied to the standard)

Mission Prize- Entered into a drawing for a free $50.00 gift card to School Box.




Rather than continuing to collect money for coffee, we are asking that you donate 2 containers of Folgers Coffee and a box of creamer to the collection. This will help us to maintain the supply throughout the year.

Also, if you prefer K-cups, you are welcome to use the Keurig in the conference room, however, please provide your own K cups, or donate a box of K cups every now and again to help refill the supply.

Ms. V is freakishly calm, cool, and collected every time I see her. In such a turbulent profession like education, Vonda can always be counted on for consistent awesomeness!

8. Ms. Owens

Ms Owens is always willing to help students and staff in any way, shape, or form humanly possible. She truly cares about our kids success. Not just those on her role, ALL kids. She could mentor veteran teachers on caring.
