School Year 2011-2012 Has Started!

Our school year started yesterday with the teacher institute day and today with the first day for students. At school, the excitement is palatable, the energy high, and the shine on the floors bright! 

All of the expectations are fresh, all of the students are on an even playing field, and all of the school supplies are fresh! As the principal and I visited all classrooms K-5 and all 5-8 students at a welcome back assembly, we were warmly greeted and welcomed by students and staff alike.

One of the great benefits of working in a one-school school district as the superintendent is the true instructional nature of the leadership position! On a daily basis the principal and I are in classrooms, in hallways, in the lunch room, in the parking lot, basically "everywhere" students and staff interact.

Our aim is excellence. Our mission is:
At Pennoyer School, we are dedicated to the development of our children academically, emotionally, and socially. We must prepare our students to become life-long learners, positive contributors of our community and responsible citizens of a global society.

We are very happy to facilitate learning for our 400 students and we are happy to facilitate professional growth for our 31 teachers and 10 support staff personnel!
