Shop Shout Out - PNHS MARKETING 11
Texas Roadhouse site visit was the culmination of the material learned in the first semester. The Marketing 11 students enjoyed the trip and many were unaware of the marketing positions available in restaurants such as Texas Roadhouse. The students were surprised to learn that this restaurant has two employees who just handle marketing in the Plymouth community.
This week at the preschool we have been talking a lot about kindness. When a teacher notices a student doing something kind, they are given a heart to put on our kindness wall. Students have been busy making valentines and making heart crafts for Valentines Day. In Miss Meaghan’s class students took turns giving and taking a rose to each other.
In Miss Merry’s class they had teddy bear day! The students counted and sorted with bears. Students also went in a “bear cave” with their teddy bears.
The second grade students at FFES enjoyed the cultural arts program, “Wingmasters” with Jim Parks! This program was very educational and inspiring to all! The students learned about various birds that were injured and will eventually be released back in the wild. It was a “HOOT”!

First grade Arts Integration
We all Swim Together
Each grade level wore their grade level colors and listened to different grade level presentations. Featured presenters were, V.P Courtney Triffletti, Guidance Nikki Quinlan, Assistant Superintendent Patricia Fry, Lunch Supervisor Caryn Eaton, School Psychologist Corinne Monty and by way of video, Superintendent Gary Maestas. Lynn Findlay, who welcomes everyone to IBES at the front desk, made fish bowls for each grade level.
Indian Brook would like to thank Jill for her thoughtfulness and dedication to make these assemblies a success.
MES Students Research Deep Space Images
This past month, students from Mrs. Cavicchi’s 5th grade science classes had the unique opportunity to work collaboratively with Insight Observatory.
Students were paired up to work together to research different celestial bodies. Their assignment was to become “class experts” and then share their knowledge with each other. Students spent time researching their choice of a galaxy or nebula. They gathered information, created a Google Slide presentation, and then shared it with their classmates.
All their hard work paid off when the remote telescope in New Mexico captured images of each student’s celestial body. Their excitement was beyond anything we could have imagined. When the students started this project, they had very basic knowledge of space, and did not have a clear understanding of how vast space really is. While researching, the children’s curiosity grew tremendously to discover the depth of space exploration.

A new after school class has started at PCIS with Nurse Educator, Judy Duarte - HeartSavers CPR!
A grant was recently awarded to Nurse Judy through the Plymouth Education Foundation to give students the opportunity to take a HeartSavers CPR course now through May after school. Students learn adult, child and infant CPR as well as how to safely operate an automated external defibrillator (AED).
Thank you PEF and Nurse Judy for providing students with such an important learning experience!
