Park Forest Elementary School Song
Below is the recording of this year's 5th graders, who, in this unique year, had to record themselves individually. Mr. Edmunds (David's dad) put this together for us! Our wonderful Mrs. Begg wrote the music set to lyrics that last year's 5th graders wrote for Mrs. Begg. Mrs. Begg asked last year's 5th graders to give her words that "represented" Park Forest Elementary.
I get up, I've got a place to go!
I belong at a school I know.
Teachers and friends, at every turn.
Important things that I need to learn!
(CHORUS) At PFE, PFE, PFE the school for me
I love PFE, PFE, Park Forest Elementary
Being kind, and standing side by side,
Every day, we show our penguin pride.
Memories made through work and fun.
We grow, and we respect everyone.
The P.A.W.S.(Providing Assistance With Schoolwork) Project is a Nittany Lions Read/Nittany Lions Count Program dedicated to offering “homework help and support” to the children and families of the surrounding communities. The P.A.W.S. Project employs eligible and qualified Penn State Students to engage remotely with third through eighth grade children to provide individualized homework support in the areas of literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. The Community Service Federal Work-Study Office within the Office of Student Aid at The Penn State University – University Park, coordinates the P.A.W.S. Program. Utilizing Zoom, program staff will review the child’s homework assignments, assessing and strategizing with the child to establish a manageable approach to the child’s homework success. Throughout the engagement, program staff seek to determine areas of both strength and need and encourage/assist the child to not only complete their assignments, but also to comprehend the topics or concepts more fully.
Interested families may schedule a "Homework Help" session utilizing the link below. For more information or if you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
