The school year is moving along and we have been keeping busy at Pierrepont School! It is hard to believe that we are midway through the third quarter already.
We have been celebrating reading with a sprit week leading up to Read Across America Day on March 2nd. Staff and students are invited to dress up as their favorite book character on Friday March 2nd, and our 6th graders will serve as volunteer readers throughout the day.
The Books and Beyond program is moving forward with great success. Students in grades four and five are reminded to continue recording their minutes. Students have until the end of the month to complete their minutes. Mark your calendars for the graduation breakfast that will be held on Thursday, May 3 for grade 5 and Friday, May 4 for grade 4. I have issued a special “Principal’s Challenge” for Books and Beyond. If 90% or more of our 4th and 5th graders graduate from the program the students will earn an afternoon karaoke party one day in the spring!
Pierrepont students will take the PARCC from April 24-May 2. Detailed information about the testing schedule will be sent home closer to the testing period.
Thank you to the Pierrepont Community for supporting the American Heart Association through the Hoops for Heart Knock Out Tournament. Our students raised over $11,000 for a great cause! A special thanks to Ms. Mahoney and Mrs. Singer for coordinating the event.
Please continue to clip, save, and send in Box Tops for Education!
