Annual School Board Recognition Program
Literacy Focused Celebration of Thanks
Students from the elementary, middle and high schools thanked the School Board for the many literacy-building initiatives that are offered to students at all three levels and for their countless hours of volunteer service. The elementary students focused on various elements that help them develop fundamental reading and writing skills. The middle school reading specialists created an interactive Kahoot.it presentation. Students then described 6th, 7th and 8th grade programs in detail. The high school presentation included a video that celebrated the many ways that PHS programs help students develop critical thinking and analytical skills, presentation skills and writing skills aimed at future success.

Board Vice President Lisa Roth closed with noting that she loved that so many students thanked the board for technology but also thanked them for time to read during Sustained Silent Reading. The fact that a child can still get lost in a book is a simple, yet timeless sentiment in today's world that is filled with technology.
