Wwi 3

On November 21 in Mr. Rod Beaton’s 9th grade social studies class, students received a rare opportunity to view firsthand, artifacts from WWI, which included a diary, Bible, dog tags, bracelet, post cards, newsletters and a personal letter signed by General John J. Pershing (http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-i/john-j-pershing). The historic artifacts belonged to Officer Charles St. Andrews, who is the great uncle of April Woods, our assistant principal at the high school. It was so rewarding to see our students get so excited and engaged in learning about our nations history.

Farley Bags1

Farley Hill Elementary third graders  assembled “Snack Bags for Veterans” to help supply homeless veterans at the VA hospital in Ann Arbor with snacks. The excited students separated into two groups, the first group stood in line picking out what food items they wanted to include in their bag for the veterans. The second group got busy making cards, thanking the veterans for their service towards the country. The two groups swapped places until all the bags were filled and all the food was utilized. This project was made possible due to the generous donations of parents from Farley Hill Elementary.  “It makes me feel good because you’re helping someone who does not have food” said one student. Another third grader said, “We are helping them by giving them stuff that they need because they served our country”.  The third graders helped set an awesome example for all of Farley Hill and the Pinckney School District by partaking in such a helpful and generous service project.

Robotics Award

Pinckney’s Robotic Program was once again honored on November 18th at the Livingston County Economic Development meeting as a leader in talent innovation. Pinckney was the only school being recognized at the event, as we were among the county’s business and political leaders. The word is now starting to get out among the business community that Pinckney High School is producing some of the most talented, skilled and confident interns/employees that are so desperately needed in today’s 21st century economic world. Congratulations to Sean Hickman, along with all our staff who continue to provide such awesome learning opportunities for our students. Proudly Pinckney!

Navigator Upper Elementary's 6th Grade Team Courage recognized first responders from our community in October by  sharing their cards of thanks, posters, and  a rap song to honor our local heroes.  The honorees which included fire-fighters, law enforcement officials, and EMTs were treated to  cider and donuts, while they watched a short video of thanks.  The idea for creating the video came about after a classroom discussion about 9/11.  Students wanted to celebrate the dedication of our local first responders.  The video was created by the students and their  teacher Mrs. Simon.  The event concluded with a few fun and safe Halloween experiments demonstrated by Mrs. Dewey and Mrs. Simon, with  the help of their students.
