It was a big week for recognizing Piney Point student accomplishments! I was honored to attend the Mayor’s Proud Partner breakfast Tuesday to collect an award for our marvelous 1st grade Eco-Schools USA Monarch Heroes!
Ms. Leal, Ms. Thormodsgaard, Ms. Villanueva, Ms. Salas, 2017-18 Monarch Heroes Alex and Krisha, and 2018-19 Monarch Heroes Sherlyn, Penelope, and Fabian joined me at the Hilton Americas to receive a very well-deserved award recognizing the impact of our 1st graders efforts to educate their community, beautify and improve their campus, and advocate for wildlife.
In the STEAM lab we cycled through five classes of Monarch Heroes new garden bed painting and started working on a new recycled art project! Everything looks gorgeous and I cannot wait until our last three groups have their turn and we start the assembly portion of the projects.
Picture Day, a couple of field trips and the Universal Kinder and 5th grade testing led to a somewhat topsy-turvy schedule, but lots of great problem solving and collaboration went on just the same!
We closed out the week with the Marathon Kids 1st marathon finisher celebration. It was a beautiful day to be out on our track and enjoy a run!
