Writing Lessons

Submitted by sheree.storrer on Thu, 04/28/2022 - 13:23

Mrs. Taylor’s class was so lucky to have Mrs. McEntire come and do some gradual release writing lessons.  The students learned what good writers do and how to make their story more interesting by adding describing words.  The students finished up the week of writing by writing their own memory story.

Our last Scholastic book fair had the rewards being given back to our school library. Your generosity through our book fair sales earned us quite the assortment of books! We have books that are great for all grade levels and will help our students stay excited about reading because books that they have requested are now on our shelves. Thank you to all who helped make this possible!

March Madness of Books

Submitted by sheree.storrer on Tue, 04/26/2022 - 14:23

Fifth grade started reading some picture books each day in March. Our goal was to choose the BEST book in the bunch. We found a ton of books we enjoyed, but our favorite was Norman Didn’t Do It (Yes, he did!). If you haven’t had a chance to read it, check it out at the library and get immersed in a story about a special friendship. We sure loved the lesson Norman learned.

It is that time of year again! PSL applications for next school years 4th and 5th graders can be picked up in Mrs. McAllister's room and are due by May 6th. They do require a parent signature.

PSL is a great way for students to practice and demonstrate leadership qualities. PSL members help plan and coordinate service projects, leadership day, morning announcements and help with send-off assemblies on Mondays. This a a fantastic opportunity that the students enjoy being a part of and helping our school achieve greatness!

Congratulations to Penny McEntire who won the Crystal Apple Award! The Crystal Apple Award is given to an educator who has made a positive impact on students! Penny more than exemplifies love and positivity to not only the students but the faculty here at Park. She is always upbeat, kind, complimentary and seeks ways to help us all succeed. It may be her first year here at Park, but she has made it a goal to learn all the students names, pushes into classrooms to help teach and spend time with our students.
