College Preparatory Update

Miss Heather Hillman

Hello Families!

Highlights from the Week!

This past week College Prep students enjoyed participating in Spirit Week for Reading Month! Each Focus Group also participated in a Door Decorating contest where each group decorated there door in a different literary genre.

Twin Day!!

Monday, March 13 - Celebrating Pi Day with Miss Lloyd!

Miss Lloyd's math classes will be celebrating pi day! Pi day is usually celebrated on March 14th (3.14), but we will be celebrating a day early due to our mid-winter break. Pi is a mathematical constant, which we use quite a bit when studying geometry. To celebrate, I am asking for parents, who are willing and able, to send in circular or round foods. Cookies, small pies, circular pretzels, oranges, and other treats would be appropriate. The students will be finding the area and circumference of our yummy treats! Please email Miss Lloyd, donna.lloyd@jacksonpec.org, if you have any questions.
