Nav Laser 2015

Navigator students who earned all 2s and 3s in Citizenship on their report card participated in a BAAM Jam on Thursday, February 5. For this BAAM Jam, students enjoyed a laser show along with some great music in the Jane Tasch Theater. Students had a great time not only singing along and enjoying the show, but also learning a bit about lasers in the process.

Polar Plunge 2015

To show their support for Special Olympics, the Pinckney Men’s Swim Team participated in the Polar Plunge held at Brighton High School. This event raises funds for local Special Olympics athletes. With over 100 people participating, the event raised more than $28,000. The swim team had to jump into the icy water to receive the money from their sponsors. Many members of the team enjoyed their dive and readily entered the water a second time. The entire event showed the love and support our community has for their own.

Nav Kindness

Liza Kapeller, Kayla Barkoff, and Emma Gendernalik, 4th grade students at Navigator Upper Elementary School, had the idea to create a school-wide program to promote kindness among students. They came up with the name "Kindness Kounts!" and created forms that students and staff can fill out about ways they show kindness to others or times they saw someone show kindness to someone else. Each week, these acts of kindness are read aloud over the morning announcements. Participation has been increasing over the school year and it has been wonderful to hear all the different ways that people show kindness to others at Navigator!

Golin Photo 1

Mrs. Golin's third grade class at Farley Elementary in Pinckney was thinking of our troops when they adopted a special forces platoon over the holidays.  The class collected donated items and made cards for these men and women.  Mrs. Lytle and Mrs. Kruk's classes also made cards and posters for the troops to add to the boxes of goodies collected.  They were able to fill 7 boxes of much needed cheer for a platoon that was in need.

Ps Christmas

During the month of December the Porthole over at Pathfinder School collected gifts for a family in the local area for their holiday service project, the 'Giving Tree'. The students in the class displayed a tree within their store for the month and on the tree were labels with various gifts and necessities, allowing for all to come in and pick and choose what they wanted to contribute towards the family. Both students, parents and staff supported the Porthole's class mission, collecting an overwhelming amount for the family. The students even wrapped the gifts to help ensure that the family would have a wonderful Christmas.
