Hello all.
As you prepare to meet with your child(ren)'s teacher(s) next week at our Spring Parent Conferences, please consider referencing a valuable resource that was mentioned at yesterday's PTO meeting.

The Learning Guides for Families were published last fall, and were distributed to families at our Open House.

These documents can be accessed at:

Choose the appropriate grade level Guide and open the pamphlet.
You may wish to download the pdf to your own hard drive for future reference.
Thank you!
Cindy

Curiosity Reigns at P.I.E.S.

At Peaks Island Elementary School we are constantly striving to maintain the balance between enriching the student experience and attending to the academic requirements of our school.  We do so with great care and intention.  It is only possible to succeed in the delicate balance with the solid support of our parent and community volunteers.  Thank you all!

Spring is coming and we have many things to look forward to.  We have the new Smarter Balanced assessments coming.  Mrs. Nilsen will be updating parents soon.  We have received the robotics kits that we were awarded through a STEM grant.  We received a Healthy Maine grant to plant and steward apple trees.  We were also awarded a grant through Safe Routes to School and the Maine Bike Coalition to provide bike helmets for all of our students.  We support all efforts to increase safe routes to school and savvy practices on foot and on a bike as we head toward summer.  To go along with these efforts, Mr. Marenghi's class is producing a Peaks Landmarks Bike tour to celebrate their classroom expedition.

We do our best work with your support and we appreciate all you do to help us ensure our students' current and future success.  WE HOPE TO SEE YOU IN OUR SCHOOL.
