Check out these PES kindergarten students! These kindergarten students at PES have been comparing and contrasting 2-D and 3-D shapes. They have been busy discovering if a shape is a flat or a solid and comparing vertices and sides. These budding mathematicians also experimented with turning a 2-D shape into a 3-D shape. Great job, Kindergartners!

YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE AWARD - 8/27/2021 Congratulations to OVMS Cafeteria Unit Leader Crystal Fishel! S-OCS Food Service Coordinator Beth Ziegenhorn provided the following statement as Crystal received the "You Made A Difference" Award: This staff member of mine is a breath of fresh air. Even after experiencing a tremendous loss in her family right before school began in 2020, she still managed to run her kitchen with the same smile and energy as she carried before. When I reached out to Olivia, the former food service director, she said, "This staff member always greets every student with a smile and goes above and beyond for her school. You can always find her willing to lend a hand to her fellow co-workers and helping the custodians or other unit leaders in the district. She is the true definition of a team player." You will often find her in the kitchen listening to a groovy playlist--singing and dancing along. Her energy is contagious and her heart and dedication to her job is unwavering.
