From the Art Room...

I would like to give a shout out to Kendall Meunier. Her photograph was selected for the 2015 PWCS Student Art Exhibit at the Buchanan Partners Gallery in the Hylton Performing Arts Center during the month of February. Less than 25 people are selected from the whole entire county and less than 3 people were from an elementary level. This is a big honor and I am so proud of her!

Our Cancer Boy
When their classmate in Mrs. Starnes' class was diagnosed with a brain tumor 2 years ago, the children rallied around him showing support and compassion. They turned their questions into a story that is now being published through Archway Publishing Company. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to fund free copies of the book for schools and hospitals around the country. Fox 5 did a follow up story as well. The book is expected to be available for purchase in October, and we will make details available once they are known.

Baldrige Information for Parents

Baldrige is about building learning systems in the classroom in which every member of the class (and school) is involved. Teachers work with students to take responsibility for theirown learning, so the very first thing that a teacher does with his/her students is build the culture of the classroom by creating an atmosphere of trust and acceptance.
