STUDENTS CREATE CHANGE
As a part of their persuasive writing unit students are making recommendations on how to improve their school day.  Third graders met with lunch and recess staff to present their ideas and supportive reasoning.  Students anticipated the teachers' counter claims and prepared well reasoned rebuttals.  We are proud of students' creative thinking and writing!

POSITIVE PARTNERSHIPS
We appreciate our daily partnership with the Parker Police Department.  Police officers do an exceptional job connecting with students while they are patrolling school grounds.  This week Officer Graham spoke with second grade students during recess.



CHAMBERS ROAD ILLUSTRATION

The video below depicts what Chambers Road will look like at the completion of the expansion project next November.  There will be an approximately 20-30 foot gap between the road and the hill that sits at the top of our playground.  This meets the federal requirements for a safe space.  Please note the bike lane, tree lawn and sidewalk.  Feel free to contact Jenny Brown if you have additional questions or concerns.
