In August, the PVSchools Governing Board voted to approve a K-8 model for Pinnacle Peak Elementary School (PPES). Our first 7th grade class will begin in 2017-2018; 8th grade will follow in the 2018-2019 school year. Here is a video featuring Dr. Kim Guerin, Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Support, with background information.
We are excited to be offering a K-8 model and believe that there are many benefits. Research shows that students benefit from smaller class sizes, increased teacher support, and more flexibility. If you are interested in this opportunity for your child, please review the information below. If you have any questions, are interested in a school tour or speaking further with our Principal, Mrs. Lora Herbein, please email email@example.com.For those parents who are already certain that PPES K-8 is right choice for your family, please submit your commitment letter on or before December 16, 2016. Please know that the December 16th deadline will give us the necessary time to plan the details of an extraordinary curriculum, and recruit and hire the best educators available prior to the start of the new school year. Enrollment space will be limited in the Spring. If your family chooses another PVUSD Middle School option your commitment letter must also be received no later than December 16th.
