Principal's Message

Dear Pennoyer Families:

It is amazing how quickly this year is flying by!  Students and staff are both excited for upcoming warmer weather and longer days!   

Pennoyer has been a very busy place these past few months.    Families have recently been able to come out to Pennoyer for our Incoming Kindergarten Round Up, Family Literacy Night, and the PTC Daddy Daughter Dance.  Thank you to all the teacher volunteers and PTC members with whom these events would not be possible.  An upcoming event that you will definitely not want to miss is Taste of Pennoyer being held on March 8th.  We also have two Community Events regarding the building referendum question on the March 20th ballot being held at Pennoyer on Feb 28th and March 15th.   Please check out the Referendum Information tab on our website, for more information as well as our online calendar with additional upcoming school events. 

Recently, students have participated in our Winter AimsWeb and MAP benchmark testing and our English Language Learners have been busy taking the ACCESS test.  PARCC testing will also take place for our 3rd-8th graders March 5-20th. 
Soon, students and staff will enjoy time off for Spring Break.  The last day for student attendance is Thursday, March 22nd with school resuming on Monday, April 2nd.   I hope everyone enjoys time with their friends and family.   As we look forward to our Spring vacation, I’d like to remind parents to be sure your children are coming to school on time and equipped for temperature and weather changes.  Layers of clothing are recommended as the temperature varies greatly in our building.

As I walk around the building, I am extremely proud of all the incredible teaching and learning moments happening within our classrooms.   Consider joining Twitter and following our tweets at #pennoyerpride.  You’ll be amazed at what you see! 


Mrs.  Gina Sierra
