Mr. Alter Wiener will be here on 29th of May in the afternoon. He has been invited to speak to our school on behalf of Ms. Rodgers’ dual immersion class. The dual immersion class has decided to extend this invitation to parents, staff, and the entire middle school. The dual immersion students have been studying the holocaust for the last three weeks. Her students have read The Diary of Anne Frank, viewed parts of documentaries, learned and analyzed propaganda in our society, and are in the process of creating their own propaganda with Right Brain artist. We encourage all interested parties to attend.

Univision joins PPS in promoting early literacy
Univision created and is now airing a public service announcement talking about the importance of reading daily with children and using the school or local library as a resource.
Superintendent put what she called "a stake in the ground" this year to focus schools and the community on early literacy and the goal that all current kindergarteners are reading well by the end of third grade.
"Early literacy is a powerful predictor of future success in school and life," said Superintendent Carole Smith. "We thank Univision for helping to share this important message with families."
