Bearcat Praises

Thank you all who made this another outstanding week at PPIS!!

Thank you so much Ms. Galen for all the hard work she is putting into making our 12 days of Christmas special for all our staff! We have had some really good things these last couple of weeks and have a few more surprises for everyone next week. Thanks Mrs. Loftis as well for helping decorate the workroom to make it more Chistmasy! I hope everyone is enjoying it!

Thanks to all our 3rd and 4th grade teachers as well as the staff in Mrs. Kim's room for making their end of the hallway very decorative for their kids. I have no doubt that they appreciate it and I've heard the lighting is helping in more ways than one ;)!

Thank you so much Galen and Margie for putting the jigsaw puzzle together each day for our subs and for EVERYONE who is always willing to help out wherever they are needed. Those ladies always seem to find a way to make it work and every time I start to panic about not having coverage they just look at me and say "we will make it work" and they do!!

Thanks so much to our campus leadership team for their feedback on Wednesday. We have some exceptional teachers and leaders on this campus. It's always great to hear their thoughts on our school and ways that we can improve moving forward.

Thank you Ms. Perry, Mrs. McGee and all the other teachers who helped decorate our Christmas tree. It looks outstanding and will be the center of attention at our Christmas program this Monday!

Thank you 6th grade teachers and students who sent out the Christmas cards to not only our staff but other campuses as well. I received a few emails thanking us for them and think that's outstanding they took the time to send those to everyone.

DOK Questions Displayed

I've heard a lot of positive comments from all grade levels on the effect our DOK initiative has had on students already. I truly appreciate everyone's effort as this is something that we all need to be committed to in order for it to make an impact. Here are just a couple examples I saw during the week. I know there are several more. Thank you so much for your efforts with this!

Thank you all for everything you do and have a great weekend!
