Pinewood Playground Party Tonight Wed. July 15, 2015

Pinewood families do not forget that tonight at 6:30pm we will be hosting a playground party at Pinewood.  Students and families are invited to come catch up with friends, enjoy some ice cream, play on the playground, and get help with any of the online learning tools we have been sharing each week in the blog.  Great job to all of our students reading and doing their summer learning, thank you to the Wagner Family for sharing this great picture of their summer reading.

I have had a busy week full of new learning opportunities.  After the nErdcamp conference last week I flew to Washington D.C. to participate in a 5 day conference with principals from all over the United States and Canada hosted by Discovery Education.  It was an amazing opportunity to collaborate with other school leaders and participate in sessions lead by national speakers and educational leaders.

One of the many great resources I learned about was a summer learning series through Discovery Education called Discovery’s World Wide Summer Adventure.  This series combines informational articles, video clips, and interactive material in daily and weekly adventure lessons.  If your student is looking for more learning resources or is enjoying some of the other online sites shared this will be another favorite.  This weeks post is on swimming with sharks, in honor of Shark Week.
