WE'RE ALL LEARNING
STUDENTS: Kindergartners in Mrs. Dietzel's class met their PBIS goal and earned a class celebration. They chose to have a "fancy" day. Cute and fun!
TEACHERS: On Thursday we joined again for a learning opportunity with the Garner and Van Allen staffs. Our focus was on the importance of using tools to make math understanding more concrete and teaching kids to choose and use tools for problem solving.

School Supply Volunteer
To continue being able to provide the school supply service which parents can order their school supplies through each year we need someone to begin working on it now. This not a difficult job and you would be working with the current volunteer for this next ordering session. If we are unable to find someone to take this on, we will need to cut the program. Please email email@example.com if this is something you are interested in keeping at Penn.
