What's Happening at Peaks

Principal’s Notes                                                                                                                              

February 6, 2017


Dear Peaks Island Parents,


NAEP testing, grade 4, February 6th


On Monday, February 6, all of our grade 4 students will be participating in the National Assessment of Educational Progress or NAEP.  Half of our students will complete a reading assessment and the other half will complete a math assessment.  

Peaks Island School Panels: If you wrote an IOU at the Baxter Academy raffle during the winter concert, please bring your contribution to Ms.Pam. She has an envelope for this. If you won an item at the raffle and live on island, please come by the office where they are being held for you.  Thanks for this!


After School Academy


With special thanks to Kathy Simmonds, we have a very special school play ASA planned for this year.  K-5 students will be working with Carmen Mandley from Portland Stage to put on William Shakespeare’s comedy, “Midsummer Night’s Dream”.

Math Meet at Holiday Inn by the Bay, Thursday, February 2nd


Team Peaks is on the rise!  Each of our mathletes solved problems and made points at the southern Maine meet on Thursday.  We are proud of their commitment to getting better and persevering.


Congratulations Quality Producers


Please join me in congratulating the following students for showing again and again their dedication to quality work. There was a special celebration for them on Friday afternoon.  Shout outs go out  to:


Ava Coward   Rhyder Pollard      Cedar Conly   Meleah Herrick      Austin Morales      Nora Berenguel


Project based learning trainings, February  8 and 15


Teachers have been working hard with Karen MacDonald to develop our newest project based learning unit.  The learning targets for this unit will be drawn from writing and social studies standards,  specifically geography, economics, and persuasive writing.  All K-5 students will be diving into the guiding question, “Why does it matter where our food comes from?”  Teachers have two more days of training in February-- the 8th and the 15th-- to flesh out this unit, the latest in our school wide focus around sustainability.
