National Counselor's Week

Happy Counselor's week to the best counselor ever! We are so very fortunate to have Mrs. Kirby! She fills so many roles in our school from guidance and child study to supporting families and teachers. Thank you Mrs. Kirby for all that you do. We appreciate you!!!

"100 Days of School" Celebration!

On February 2nd, PreK-2nd grade classes will celebrate 100 Days of Learning! At 1:45p.m. 3-6th grade teachers are welcome to line their classes along the lockers to see PreK through 2nd grades march down the hallway in a parade to celebrate 100 days of learning! We will culminate the parade with releasing 100+ balloons into the sky. We look forward to this new tradition at Penn!

Progress Reports

Please print progress reports for students who are not meeting grade level standards. Progress reports are due Tuesday, February 2 to your evaluator. Progress Reports will go home Monday, February 8, 2016.

Early Release Luncheon

Remember to bring your delicious soups in a Crockpot or your salad. As a suggestion, some teachers begin heating their soup in their classrooms the last hour before dismissal so that it is hot and ready to go. It will make the lunch transition more efficient.

Don' forget the serving spoons! It's commonly missed and difficult to serve soup without it. Please have your yummy lunches ready to eat and be seated and ready to begin in the gym by 1:30p.m.

As we work together over the next months in Professional Learning Communities to look at student work and gather for Child Study to talk about individual student development, enjoy the video below.
