STEM Project donations needed

Our third graders are designing working periscopes to learn more about how light travels. The project is next week.

For this project we need:

  • Long tubes - Paper towel and gift wrap tubes or anything similar would be perfect. Even long skinny boxes can work.
  • Small mirrors - If you have old or used up make up containers with small mirrors we could really use those, too.

Thank you on behalf of all of our third graders!

-Mr. Horton, STEM Specialist for Park Terrace

Park Terrace teaching staff will soon be looking at classroom placement for the upcoming 2019-20 school year.  Assigning students to homerooms requires careful planning by the staff. A great deal of thought will go into placing children into classes for the next school year. In creating class lists, the following factors are taken into account for developing balanced homerooms:

  • Gender         
  • Specific student combinations      
  • Equity
  • Leadership        
  • Learning style        
  • Academic skill levels

Although new students are added as they register during the summer, once the lists are developed, we will keep changes to a minimum so as not to upset the balance of homerooms.

If you have specific input regarding your child that you would like our staff to consider as we create homeroom groupings, please fill out a Parent Input form found in the main office. All Parent Input Forms are due by Wednesday, May 8. 

We promise to take into account any input you may have and we can assure you that this process receives much time and effort by our staff. Each child is given special consideration when developing our educational program. Please feel free to call the school office if you have any questions.

Grade 2 March Madness at Park Terrace

Second grade students participated in a battle of titles during their 2019 March Madness book competition. Each day they listened to a new book. Every two days they voted on their favorite. Mrs. Fehringer and Mrs. Winterer read the final two books and then the students voted.  

The winner was Gaston, a book with a wonderful message for everyone!

It is very important that our students have a strong finish to the school year. The third trimester is filled with opportunities for learning. Please work to maintain strong habits and routines at home and at school. 

We encourage all families to stay consistent with attendance and homework routines. Please also make sure to take time to read each night, as reading development is very important to every student.

Our third and fourth grade students will take MCA’s starting next week. These tests can be challenging and are a good opportunity for students to show their perseverance. Be sure they have a good night’s rest prior to testing each day, eat a healthy breakfast - students will need brain food, and arrive to school on time. Testing begins at 9:45 a.m.
