Have a Great Summer!
I want to wish all the Pinnacle Peak students, parents, staff, and community members a happy end of the school year and wonderful summer! Take time to rest, be with family, and have some wonderful adventures. Read a good book, try a fun experiment, build something, or play a board game. If you are looking for learning ideas over the summer check out the link below for some great things our students can access and continue their learning journey. There are some really cool new summer options through our learning platforms, like Zearn and Really Great Reading to keep our students' minds sharp!
Remember - Pinnacle Peak Students are Safe, Organized, Accountable and Respectful - go SOAR through your summer break!!
Congratulations to our Amazing 8th Graders!!
