We have a full week planned this week with Track and Field. Because we have 820 kids, we have split the grade levels into two days. PK-2 will be on Thursday and grades 3-5 will be on Friday. The kids have earned a disco party for the amazing levels of participation we had with the Jump Rope for Heart program. Those are also on Thursday and Friday.
How to contact the principal and assistant principal: The best way to reach Emily Marshall, assistant principal, and myself is through email. We use Dojo to share school wide events. The best way to reach Ms. Marshall is email@example.com and me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to make sure we respond to you within 24 hours so this helps ensure we don't miss your messages.
Destination Imagination is project-based learning, and blends with STEM education. We wanted to bring DI to Pfluger to allow students to get inspired, lead, and build up their teamwork abilities. This gives students the opportunity to explore and utilize their creativity. This is the first year that we are having DI at Pfluger. It’s a group of 7 students that are competing in the Engineering Category. Our team is called the Soaring Falcons! We are all FALCONS, and we want to SOAR at our challenges. We have been challenged to build a bridge out of duct tape and playing cards! And create a script to go along with it. TEAMWORK makes the DREAM WORK!
As a result, the Soaring Falcons competed at a region wide tournament, and placed 6th out of 13 in the Engineering Category. They also earned the highest score Raw Score in their Instant Challenge, at all levels, and categories. Overall, they felt successful, and all said that this is something that they would want to do again!
