Message from Administration

Hello Patriot families,

We hope you had a wonderful winter break and wish you all a happy new year! We know that 2023 is going to be a wonderful year at Pine View.

The beginning of a new year is a great time to set goals; short term and long term goals, too. Report cards were released on January 13th. We encourage you to review your child’s grades and mid-year data points, celebrate, and also set goals for this new school year.

Our teachers and staff will be looking closely at our mid-year data points and also helping to set goals with each child.

Your partners in education,
Ms. Jaworski, principal

Mrs. Maus, assistant principal

January Learner Profile of the Month-Thinker

IB Learner Profile: Thinker

The IB Learner profile aims to develop students who are thinkers. Students who are thinkers exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively to recognize and approach complex problems, and make reasoned, ethical decisions.

IB students contribute to discussions in a meaningful way. They do not shy away from challenging questions and, once they know the answer, follow up by asking “why?”

How can parents help to develop students who are thinkers at home?

  1. Encourage your child to engage in pretend play, children are naturally curious and imaginative.
  2. Pause and wait...give your child time to think for him/herself, be patient.
  3. Don't intervene immediately, it's okay to let your child explore on their own.
  4. Ask open-ended questions.
  5. Help children develop hypotheses.
  6. Encourage critical thinking in new and different ways.
  7. Encourage your child to retell stories, put on plays with story props.
  8. Leave time for unstructured play.
  9. Encourage your child to play and explore outside.
  10. Encourage Creative Thinking.
  11. Let your child experience failure, and then let him/her figure out how to turn their failure into a positive learning experience.
  12. Provide opportunities to visit Children's Museums and Libraries.
