Eclipse

On Monday, August 21st, we’ll experience the first total eclipse in this part of the world since 1979.  I was a senior in high school the last time we could see an eclipse in Georgia.  I’m very excited to share this with our students.  We’ve been getting ready by doing eclipse projects, sharing fun facts on the PNN News and planning all sorts of fun events around the coming occurance.  Friday, August 18th, is our first Pitner Spirit day.  We will dress like it’s the 80’s!  (Remember the song, “Total Eclipse of the Heart”?) It should be a fun day ahead of the eclipse.  Remember, we will delay dismissal by 45 minutes on Monday and will not release until 3:00.  You are welcome to check your child out early on that day.  It would be helpful to send a note so that we will be prepared and know that you are coming.

In Technology we have finished our first Reading Inventory test of the year and have started on the initial Math Inventory testing for grades 1 – 5.  We take this assessment 3 times a year: beginning, middle and end.  The students have been doing a great job!  Kindergarten will take their Foundational Reading Assessment (FRA) and Math Inventory test in September.  They have been busy learning their way around our computers and working on their mouse skills!

In the coming rotations, we will be working on a unit for all grades on Digital Citizenship and Internet Safety.
