Principal's Message

Dear Pennoyer Families,

We are now into our third trimester and would like to thank you, the parents, for being our partners in education. Working together is our primary goal and this will help students prosper. Thank you for reading our weekly communications that highlight current events and important reminders for your child. 

We have enjoyed seeing students working and learning in their classrooms. We encourage you to continue to be aware of activities, assignments and even discussions and debates that are happening in your child’s classroom and/or grade level. This can be done through direct communication with your child’s teacher, by reading home/school communications or by going online.

As is typical for this time of year, we have seen an increase in illnesses and absences. For the health and well-being of your child and others, please keep your child home until he/she is fever free for 24 hours. However, know that reducing our absentee rate continues to be a school-wide goal. We appreciate your working with us to see that this happens. Research shows that consistent attendance and timely arrival helps students with goal setting, overall success, and preparation for future careers. Keeping in communication with us is vitally important so we can support your child. Please call the office as soon as possible to report absences and tardies. In turn, we will send you reminders about attendance. 

Continue to reach out to us to share ideas, concerns and questions as we move forward. As a reminder,  Dr. Carman and Mrs. Webb are co-principals and share the week, but we communicate with one another daily. We can be reached at principals@pennoyerschool.org.

With Warmest Regards,


Dr. Terri Carman        Mrs. Elizabeth Webb
