What's Happening at Peaks

Principal’s Notes                                                      January 9, 2017


Dear Peaks Island Parents,


Happy second week back from break! You may wonder what happens in classrooms between project based units.  In Ms. Ryan-Humphrey’s class, students are immersed in the big ideas of equity, respect, and fairness by learning songs and reading literature related to this theme.

In Ms. Mirisola’s room, students have been writing poetry as well as learning about refugees and immigrants and their path to the US.

Ms. Mascolo has similarly launched a unit of study about people who have overcome hardships and persevered.  

In addition, all of the classrooms are preparing food samples to serve to Superintendent Botana and Food Services Director McLucas on January 30th.  Ms.McLucas and Mr. Botana will help students decide the healthiest and most delicious menu to serve Peaks Island School Lunch Day in the spring.


Homework Help with Ms. Roth on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:05-3:30

These sessions are available for all K-5 students who wish to do their homework at the end of the school day and have support to finish it.  Please see me if your child would like to be a part of this homework support. Thanks for this.
