Dear Parents and Guardians,
Happy New Year! As we usher in 2020, we renew our commitment to our school pledge to "Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe." Our PBIS school-wide reward system has almost reached the first milestone! Our students have been earning pom poms and filling the school tube in the lobby--we are nearing our first complete fill and look forward to having a fun reward! In addition to the school-wide reward, students caught exemplifying our school values are earning Panther Paws at a steady rate, and those picked out at random have enjoyed monthly high interest activities or are able to shop at our school store at recess.
Along with our focus on positive behavior is our goal to ensure academic growth for all of our students. To monitor that growth, we will conduct Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark testing for grades K-5, and CDT testing for grades 3-5 this month. We will use the data generated by these exams to plan and implement highly effective instruction that will allow all students to make academic gains throughout the school year.
Please take a few minutes to view the other announcements below for a review of past events and highlights for the upcoming month. Follow us on Twitter at @ParksideES for more photos and news.
