Core Values at Pizitz
Take a Moment to Provide Feedback
As we continue to consider how to provide students with opportunities to grow in character and academics here at Pizitz, we are having on-going conversations about our school's core values. Last year, we selected 12 character traits that we believe represent our school. This year, we are working to pair down that list to a more manageable number of traits that can be remembered by our students.
Last week, students started providing feedback for us. We would like to have parent input as well. Can you take a moment to respond to the Google Form here and give your feedback. Please note: the survey will close December 16.
Neon Day in PE
Our PE department has invited teachers and staff to participate in PE a few times this year. Our teachers have a competitive, fun-loving spirit and they are ALL-IN for kids. We are grateful for the invitation.
THIS Wednesday, we will be participating in PE with the students. We will be "making spirits bright" in our NEON colors. Students and staff are encouraged to wear bright colors to participate.
Here are a few important dates to note:
- December 8-9: 8th Grade Exams
- December 12: Holiday Choir Concert
- December 13: Pep-Rally; Holiday Band Concerts
- December 14: Holiday Assembly (for students and faculty)
- December 16: Holiday Class Parties & Early Dismissal
- December 19- January 3: Holiday Break
Unparalleled Community Support
In partnership with our parents and PTO, we have funds to help provide flexible seating and/or standing options for students across many classrooms at Pizitz. THANK YOU for your ongoing support to provide all of the many "extras" that are helpful to our school. We are looking forward to placing our order, and having some new furniture options in place early in the spring semester. Thank you for your generosity! We appreciate you.
Take a Break before the Break!
Students, would you like to spend a class period in the library hanging out, watching a movie, playing games, or just spending time with your friends? Well, Thursday, December 15, you can do just that! Purchase a wristband for $5 and you can spend ONE (1) class period in the library (after checking in with your teacher). Students may only purchase ONE (1) wristband to spend ONE (1) class period in the library. Wristbands will be on sale Monday, Dec. 12 through 8:00 AM Thursday, December 15.
