OCTOBER PROJECT BASED LEARNING UNIT:  FARM

During the month of October, all of our students will be learning about the farm.  They will be working to answer two school-wide questions:

What is the farm?  How does the farm work?

Students will also be researching more specific topics about the farm.  Make sure to ask your child all about it. 

 

Read for the Record & Disco Duck Dance-A-Thon

On Thursday, October 19th, we will be participating in JumpStart's Read for the Record event.  This is an event where we join with other students across the nation to try and break a record for the most children reading the same children's book in one day.  This year, the book is Quackers by Liz Wong.  This book goes hand in hand with our Farm Unit.  We are very excited.  We will have many community members in to read to our classes. 

On Friday, October 20th, we will have our First Annual Disco Duck Dance-A-Thon.  Pledge sheets came home on October 5th.  Students raising $10.00 will get a lanyard and rubber duck charm.  For each additional $5.00, an additional charm may be collected.  On the 20th, all students will show us their best dance moves.  All students will participate.  It's going to be lots of fun!

 

YANKEE CANDLE FUNDRAISER

PKS NEEDS YOUR HELP!

In order to provide privacy for our students on the playground, we are asking for help from our community businesses.  If you would like to purchase a sign to display on the playground fence, please see the information form under our Forms Section.  It is a great opportunity for you to advertise your business and help our children.  WE LOVE COMMUNITY SUPPORT!
