We learn from inspiring 
people, occasionally even Darth Vader.
Remember, together is better!

Begin With the End in Mind

Our class is on a mission this fall,
using LEXIA reading software
and developing stronger
reading habits each day.

Share our picture on Twitter,
Facebook, Google+, or Instagram
and type 
#LexiaLearning      #LexiaMasters

We earn 1 point every time someone does.
"We're in it to win it!"

This LEXIA contest runs from
September 26th to October 9th.

 Thank you!


We know together is better.
Friday is "Guest Reader"
time for some students @ school.

When the guest turns out to 
be a total surprise for all......a sister
home from college, smiles are in order!

Think Win-Win

Sharing special times @ school
with friends.....birthdays.  They're our
true emblems of childhood and happy days!
In our rooms, everyone
counts because everyone matters.

Begin With the End in Mind

We set goals
because we're important
members of our classroom and school.
Big thanks to our
L.H.S. cheerleaders
and Mr. Paul Jennings
for helping us "kick off"
the after-school program @ school this week!

Be Proactive

There's our book cart in the hall and I 
 found something good to read, right away. 
We're responsible & take
the initiative for our learning!

Oh boy..........guess what?
Just days ago our teacher mentioned
some pretty famous individuals
were going to read to us.

Famous celebrities reading to our class?

She wasn't kidding.....
and those tales were fun & fantastic!
Mr. Kevin Costner
read Catching the Moon!
Rita Moreno's book was
I Need My Monster.

Surprises are great!
We always can learn something new,
and doing it together is an "added plus!"

by teaching you will learn."

A Great Dad!

Excited to try the "Dunk Tank"
The 54th Annual
Lawrenceville Fall Festival?
Thursday evening this dad & coach 
 spent more time in the water
than sitting on the board!

#GoodSport      #ThankYou

There are so many adults who
volunteered to help the PJHS  cheerleaders
this fall, by sitting in the "Dunk Tank."
Hats-Off to each and every one!

Seek 1st to Understand & Then Be Understood

We listen to others without interrupting.
Then we share opinions
and ideas with our teacher and classmates.
It's a work in progress for everyone!

Sharpen the Saw

We enjoy learning new things & we know
it's important to spend time with
people we care about.

Be Proactive

Practicing "can do" attitudes is key.
Choosing how we feel, how we
act, and what we do is important! 

We do what is right without
 being asked, 
even if no one is looking.

Sunday, September 11, 2016


We learn from each other.
Working alongside a partner creates 
a better solution than "going-it" alone.  

Mail call.....together, we've got this!

Put First Things First

Just wrapped up a reading test & it feels good!  

We follow a daily schedule 
and spend our time on important things.

Study first and then PLAY!

Think Win-Win

In the mornings, the walk from
our bus line into the gym can seem very long.

Yet....where would we be
without respectful friends
who help little ones make that long trek?

Be Proactive

We're responsible pupils who
choose our actions, attitudes, and moods.
It's a "take charge" attitude across the school!

Seek First to Understand

We listen to our teachers,
 especially during daily lessons,
asking questions but not interrupting.
Then we can share opinions & ideas
or even help classmates who have questions!

Friday, September 2, 2016


We can all learn something from each other.  

After all, finding Parkside's office while
walking all the way from Kindergarten
can be a real challenge.  Thankfully
our first graders can lend a helping hand!

Begin With the End in Mind

It's all about reaching for the goals 
that have meaning for each of us.
Our class is an
important part of the school.
"We are all in!"
