Please read these important reminders/updates and mark your calendars!

  1. Placentinkers: Placentinkers combined art and technology this month through our exploration of Pixels and Pointillism!  We discovered that the pixels on a computer screen are just like the dots in a Pointillist painting!  It was exciting to see students "connect the dots" between technology and art. Combining our knowledge of pixels and pointillism we created two forms of art. Chromebooks were used to create our own pixel art.  And each class collaborated on creating a beautiful pointillism painting using bingo daubers!   

  2. 2019-2020 Class Placement: Please see the attached letter from Mrs. Slaney regarding class placement.

  3. Placentino Reading Night: Mark your calendars for our spring reading night on, Wednesday, April 10 from 6:30-7:30 PM. Pack a picnic, put on your pajamas, come listen to some great stories, and a visit from someone special!

  4. Spring Break: There will be no school on April 15-19.
