Welcome Back to school! This is going to be a great school year! Our theme for this year is "Operation Transformation". This will be a year of transforming our classrooms and our practices to align with today's high standards for education, in order to prepare our students to be successful in our technology-rich, global society.
Our goal at Pinkerton is for all students to have experiences that build positive attitudes, a deep understanding of who they are, what their interests entail, and how they can contribute to an international society.
Through guided inquiry and trans-disciplinary units, students will be challenged to set their own goals for learning and play an active role in the learning process. Our teachers facilitate this learning by asking guiding questions and challenging students to be creators of knowledge through technology and real-world application.
We are also exploring the six themes of the IB-Primary Years Program to see if this aligns with our philosophy and to possibly seek IB-PYP authorization in the future.
In addition, students will receive 30 minutes of weekly Spanish instruction this year provided by Spanish on Wheels, thanks to the generous funding provided by our supportive parents and PTO.
You can follow us in our learning adventures this year through Twitter. Each classroom will have their own twitter account where they will be tweeting about what’s happening in their classrooms!
It’s going to be a transformational year at Pinkerton!
