    2012-2013 School Year: 
     January 2, 2013: Pictured are some students from Mr. Tranell’s 6th grade core and math classes at PFMS in front of a banner they made celebrating their participation in the National “26 Acts of Kindness” movement in tribute to the lives lost in Newtown, Conn.  Twenty-six individuals each completing 26 acts in each of the two classes makes 1,352 acts of kindness...and counting.  Pass it on!
    26 acts
    We are proud of our class Toys for Tots Project. We wrote persuasive paragraphs and made ads, and then the class voted on the toys we'd donate in the name of our class. We ended up donating an Etch a Sketch and Twister...

    Read to someone  is a component of our daily literacy menu, and it helps students build fluency skills, listening comprehension, and most importantly, it helps students enjoy literature with classmates.  Furthermore, students choose reading material that's different from the chapter books they're reading and its helping students expand the genres they read, including newspapers, magazines, poetry, and other non-fiction.
    Check out our students "reading to someone!"

    Black Moshannon State Park Field Trip
    October 6, 2011
    What a BEAUTIFUL fall day and a great experience!


    This is a gallery of our students' first science project. The task was to improve observation skills by first making non-visual observations of an object found in nature on school grounds. Then, students documented visual properties by taking digital photos and closely examining them.  The projects were put together using Comic Life software. Enjoy:
