2013 October Teacher Highlights

by

Farmingdale:  Kindergarten had a fun farm day.  Teachers have aligned their farm theme and activities to the Common Core Standards.  Kindergarten students have also started rehearsals for the performance in Clayville in December.

PPMS:  Seventh grade students wrote tips for success for this school year in comp class.  Middle school students are also encouraged to read the Rebecca Caudill books this year.

PPHS:  Jenni Durbin has been using the Chromebooks in her classroom, and the kids LOVE them.  She said it has been so nice to be able to have access to the internet and to begin going “paperless.” They’ve been using Canvas (similar to the Blackboard program colleges use), and the kids have really seemed to enjoy it.  It’s nice to have access to the classroom from computers, ipads, cell phones, etc.  Any information they use in class is on Canvas, so students always have access to it from home.
