Cold Weather Reminder
With colder temperatures, please remember to dress your children appropriately for outdoor recess, waiting for buses/parents, and any other activities that might take place outside. Please remind your child to wear his/her coat when outside.
We need you to write your child's name inside his/her coat; it is our goal to keep all students warm, and our lost-and-found bin is reaching full capacity.
We love RECESS!
Rain, sleet, snow or shine we aim to go outside for recess in the afternoon.
It’s a rare occasion when recess is inside due to a "downpour" or, if the temp is is too frigid.
Thank you for your support.
PSD on Target to Implement Common Core State Standards
During the next school year Peninsula School District will begin a two-year implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics and English Language Arts. These standards were developed to define the knowledge and skills students should attain to be prepared to succeed in college and career.
Continuing are the high quality teaching practices that you see in our district. Some changes you will see in the classroom include emphasis in reading more informational and complex texts, writing to justify thinking, and more problem solving and problem-based learning. Knowledge and skills to be mastered at each grade level are clearly stated and reflect higher standards.
A brief introduction to Common Core Standards for each grade level can be found on the National PTA website.
The new assessments that correspond to the CCSS will be implemented in the spring of 2015.
We will continue to keep you updated throughout our two-year implementation process.
