The plan calls for the following:

  • Grades 4 and 5, and All Middle and High School Grades: Students will return in three-cohort rotations, starting with Cohort 2 per the school calendars.

Positivity Character Trait - LOVE

Week of February 8th

Last week we learned about the character trait of INTEGRITY. As you can see from our P2 Shout Outs, we have many students who have exemplified integrity and as well as other character traits. Next week, our character trait is LOVE.

Send a Virtual Valentine's Day Card to St. Jude

To help spread love, cheer and support to those who may be going through a challenging time, Penny Road Elementary School will partner with Ms. Brush's 3rd Grade Class for a Valentine's Day Virtual Card Project in support of #OtherPeopleMatter. To help us with this project we are asking that each student sends a virtual Valentine's Day Card to the children at St. Jude's Hospital. Click on the CREATE A CARD to get started. Thank you, Pandas for your support to show others that we care. #PANDALOVE #OTHERPEOPLEMATTER #PANDASTRONG

A Note from Our Hospitality Committee


We hope you are all doing well! The Hospitality Committee is planning some fun surprises for the teachers and staff at Penny Road this spring and we would love your help to make these surprises extra special! In the past, our committee has asked parents to send in food contributions and drinks for our staff. This year that isn't possible given COVID-19 and the precautions we must take to protect our staff.

We will be collecting money over the next 2 weeks to help cover the costs of catered lunches, gift cards, and other fun surprises during Staff Appreciation Week {which is May 3-7 this year}. Any donation amount is very appreciated, no amount is too small. Please send donations by: Wednesday, February 17, 2021.

Donations can be sent to Jessica Munro via PayPal or Venmo. In the notes section of your donation please reference "Penny Road Hospitality Committee."

Venmo: Jessica-Munro-44


Thank you in advance for your donation. Our Penny Road Staff is the best and we can not wait to show them how appreciated they are!
