LaAmistad At Peachtree March 24,2017

My Dearest Friends,

Spring has arrived and with it comes a fresh start, new beginnings and the realization that the school year is quickly coming to an end.

We have one week until spring break officially begins. Spring brings a fresh start and a new hopes of better things to come.

I have enjoyed working and meeting the new volunteer teams this week especially in first and third grade.

Our first and second grade teams are truly invested into pouring out their knowledge of learning into each student.

Our fourth and fifth grade team of volunteers never cease to amaze me.

Thank you making a DIFFERENCE every week.

A very special thank-you to Mr. Mario, for stepping up to the plate in third grade on Wednesdays to Ms. Alexandra and Mr. Michael for leading devotion and virtue studies this week.

The work you all do is appreciated & NEVER goes unnoticed.

Together as a team we are Peachtree Strong!

We are LOVE and Support

This week at Peachtree many of our students were saddened by the lost and death of a young friend and a neighbor in their community.

As volunteers we are asking that you be sensitive to those students and allow them to talk with you about it if they feel the need.

Children grieve in many different ways. Briana Bacorn, our Director of Counseling is available to assist you if needed and has offered the following tips.

Allow them to express their emotions freely. Let them know that it's okay to feel sad or mad.

Offer reassurance and let them know you're there if they need to talk.

Be a good listener and try not to offer reasons on why/ how the incident happened.

We can not stress enough the importance of building relationships and getting to know your students enough.

For it is times like these that we all need to lean on each other for strength, support and love.

Math All-Stars Gearing Up for Milestones

Fourth Grade Students Rock Multiplication Facts

These four 4th grade students mastered their multiplication facts through 12's.

They were assessed by their classroom volunteers using multiplication flash cards.

Students had to go through them quickly and without mistakes.

Congratulations to these 4th Grade Math-Allstars!!

Thanks for sharing Leigh Ann Dolan.

LaAmistad Reminders at Peachtree

Manners Matter. Please remind the students to be quiet in the hallways when they are coming or going to the restrooms.

Study Skill

Review Bold Faced Words

How to incorporate the study skill:

Reading comprehension and even math assignments often times include words in bold. We use bold for emphasis, to make sure that the reader sees and takes in certain words.The words in bold are going to be vocabulary words or words of importance.



Truthfulness is being honest in your words and actions. Being true to yourself means being who and what you are, without exaggerating to impress others or trying to look like something you are not.

Thank-you for hugging and loving us each week we could not do it without you.

Have a fabulous weekend.
