TRIVIA NIGHT A BIG SUCCESS!
It's no April Fool's Joke--Trivia Night was a huge success! Thanks to all the parents, teachers and administrators who came out to have fun and enjoy our wonderful Pierce community spirit. The evening raised over $10,000 to support PTO programs and events. A special thanks to all the teachers, specialists and administrators who donated their time for Teacher Treasures. They are truly treasured by our students and parents. A last shout out to the fifth grade parent leaders who helped make the event such a success. TeamworkTrivia.com hosted the trivia and a special thanks to Dante's Pizzeria and Coolidge Corner Wine and Spirits for helping sponsor the food and beverages.
PRINCIPAL'S FORUM: HOW PIERCE STUDENTS USE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
Wednesday, April 11, 7:00- 8:15pm @ Pierce School Library (Open to all grades)
What digital technologies are my children using in their classrooms now?
What kinds of work do they create using these technologies?
How do Pierce teachers use digital technology to help my children learn?
The upcoming Principal's Forum can help answer these questions. At the Forum we will:
- Hear about the curriculum resources available on the Pierce PTO website.
- Look at student work produced with digital technologies in Pierce classrooms across the grade levels.
- Share ideas about where Pierce should go next with its use of instructional technology.
PIERCE READS! 4TH-8TH GRADE BOOK DISCUSSIONS
Thursday, 4/26, 7pm @ Pierce Library
It's time again for our annual Pierce Reads event at the library! Every year, fourth through eighth grade students, parents and guardians, and Pierce staff get together for a fun night of book discussion.
This year, the fourth grade is reading Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli, the fifth and sixth grades are reading The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963 by Christopher Paul Curtis, and the seventh and eighth grades are reading New Boy by Julian Houston.
We are looking for volunteers to bring snacks on 4/26. An invitation and participation slip should have come home with your child, and we ask that they be returned as soon as possible so we know how many people we will have participating. If you have questions, contact Amanda Kretschmar at 617-730-2586. We look forward to talking about books with you!
