Dr. Jones came to Park Elementary and did a presentation about dictionaries. He gave each of the 3rd graders here at Park School a dictionary from the Rotary Club. These dictionaries will be perfect for the Third Grade Language Arts curriculum which focuses on dictionary skills.
Our Kindergarten classes worked hard to put together a wonderful Christmas Program for their friends and family. Great work to the teachers and students!
Fifth grade teachers, Jenn Sorenson & Deana Coates, have been selected to recieve a grant to participate in the summer 2013 field study, Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute, sponsered by Driven 2 Teach.
The Driven 2 Teach program takes teachers out of the classroom and to the very places where history happened – they travel there so they can teach it here. Those experiences then elevate and enhance history for their students.
Mrs. Coates is not new to Park Elementary, but she is a new 5th grade teacher. Last year she worked with the interns and new teachers. I interviewed Mrs. Coates and found out many interesting things about her. Her favorite food is chips and salsa. Her favorite thing to do in her free time is garden and sew. She has been a teacher before she came to Park. Mrs. Coates is very nice and is a wonderful teacher.
