Pence Families-


We have officially reached the end of the first quarter. Please take some time to review your student’s grades in PowerSchool. Please note that teachers are continuing to finalize grades through 11/7 ahead of the release of report cards on 11/9. We will only be sending out paper copies of the report card to families that have requested it. If you do not have an established PowerSchool account, instructions for setting up an account can be found here:

Shields- History Class

Mrs. Shields' class has had fun learning about history during the first nine weeks! They have made edible maps as they learned about geographic regions, dug for artifacts to learn about archeology, and created a class totem pole as they learned about the Kwakiutl Native American Tribe. They can't wait to continue to have fun in the second nine weeks of history class!

Ruri-Teens Club work

The Ruri-Teens have been busy helping others in our community! Members worked together to pack 27 backpacks with school supplies for our Pence students. We also made 35 t-shirt bags to donate to the Salvation Army to use when they hand out items during the upcoming holiday season. We LOVE helping others and have many more projects planned for this school year!

New Breakfast Menu Item

We are always trying new breakfast options. Fruit smoothie will be on the breakfast menu. This week we made Strawberry Blueberry flavor. Keep an eye on the breakfast menu for more smoothies to come.
