Bearcat Weekly

December 5-9

Bearcat Praises

Thank you so much to everyone who made this a great week back at PPIS!

Thanks to Galen who has helped get our 12 days of Christmas started off right with some sweets on the first day and then some good pizza Friday! We have so much more in-store for you guys over the next two weeks and really hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Mrs. Stadola for leading our ESL PD today. I was able to catch a couple of them and there were some great instructional strategies being discussed as well as informative dialog about various students and the best ways to serve them. I appreciate all that she is doing to help our campus as well as Mrs. Sudbury, Mrs. Bessire, Mrs. Prado and Mr. Santiago for all the work they are putting in by help our students in the ESL program. I have no doubt they are doing whatever it takes to make these students successful!

Thank you all so much for your generosity and compassion toward our family in need. I won't go into any details but I was literally blown away by what you all contributed. I have to thank Mrs. Lane, Mrs. Williamson, Mrs. Malone and Mrs. Hammons for their support as well. This was a true example of how we are a family here and when someone, student or teacher, needs help we pull together and get it done. I am so proud to call this my school home. You are truly an amazing group of people!

Our PPIS Family

It was great hearing everyone talk the other day about how one of our greatest strengths here is helping each other out and being supportive. I couldn't agree more and it's one the best things about working here. To be around such a caring, dedicated group of people pushing toward a common goal in making our kids successful. Thank you all so much for everything you do and for making this school a home.
