Pearcy Construction Begins!

February 9, 2017

 

Dear Parents,

School improvements for Pearcy, funded by the 2014 Bond program, are beginning!

You can see on the attached fact sheet much of the scope for Pearcy, along with the overall timeline. The work is being phased so we can avoid disrupting school as much as possible. We have our plan, but due to the nature of construction, it can always change. This is all very exciting, but we will need to be flexible as all the projects are completed.

The work at Pearcy will be done in two separate stages. The first stage, which is starting now, is to enlarge our security vestibule, add two STEM labs and improve our strings room. To make the two STEM labs, we will combine and renovate three adjacent classrooms. Our current strings room is scheduled to receive new walls, ceiling, floor finishes and acoustic wall panels.

The second stage of bond work will come in 2019 and includes a series of life-cycle and deficiency upgrades.

Our students’ safety will always be the number one priority. They will be kept away from construction areas. In addition, all construction workers are required to pass a background check before they work at Pearcy or any AISD campus.

If you have more questions about the 2014 Bond program and how it is impacting our entire district, please visit www.aisd.net/bond.

 

Sincerely,

Codi Van Duzee

Interim Principal

Everyone will have a different set of answers to these questions, depending on his/her different experiences. Thank you for your time and ideas!

Digital Citizenship Week!

Digital Citizenship Week!!!!! NEXT WEEK!!!

During the week of Sept. 19th, we will be discussing the importance of Digital Citizenship. We will have lessons in class and fun facts on the announcements. In addition to the class lessons, we want to celebrate and encourage students to remember the importance of being safe on the internet by encouraging students to dress up! Here is a list of dress up days and why they are dressing up!

Monday Sept 19th- Crazy Sock/Shoe Day- Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes/socks. Before you post or say something online about someone, put yourself in their shoes. Would you like it if they said it about you?

Tuesday Sept. 20th- Twin, Triple, Group Day- To promote friendly online behavior, dress like your friends!

Wednesday Sept. 21st- Keep It Classy Day- Dress Classy! Think before you post things online, keep it classy! Don’t post pictures or words that would be harmful for others to see.

Thursday Sept. 22nd- Camo Day- Like camo, you want to keep your identity and information hidden from people you do not know. Don’t post your address, phone number, or any other personal information.

Friday Sept. 23rd- Team Up Against Cyberbullying- Wear your favorite team shirt. If you or someone you know is being bullied online, tell someone you trust!

Pearcy Elementary 4th graders travel to Austin on an Education in Action Discover Texas Field Trip

Fourth graders from Arlington ISD’s Pearcy Elementary traveled to Austin on an Education in Action Discover Texas Field Trip May 12, 2016 to experience what they are learning in fourth grade Texas History. Students visited the Texas State Capitol and the Bullock Texas State History Museum. 

During the charter bus ride to Austin, students discussed why Texans are so proud of their unique heritage and participated in activities and games in preparation for their visit. In Austin the students visited the Texas State Capitol where their legislators, The Honorable Bryan Birdwell, State Senator, District 22 and The Honorable Chris Turner, State Representative, District 101, office. Students saw first-hand where Texas laws are made as they toured the State Capitol including the Senate and House of Representatives chambers. At the Bullock Texas State History Museum students explored exhibits about Texas’s earliest inhabitants, the Texas Revolution, and events that created our Lone Star identity. The students’ visit to the museum concluded at the multi-sensory Texas Spirit Theater with the Star of Destiny where they saw and experienced the history of our great state including a gusher exploding from an East Texas oil derrick and the takeoff of Saturn V as seen from Mission Control at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston.

“Education in Action’s Discover Texas Field Trips are based on the understanding that the most effective way for students to learn is through experience,” stated Lacey Phillips, Discover Texas Field Trips Director. “Student activities during the Discover Texas Field Trip to Austin reinforce and supplement fourth grade Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) learning objectives with a focus on why Texans are so proud of their unique heritage.”

Education in Action’s Discover Texas Field Trips make it easy for teachers to take their 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade classrooms on organized, fun, and educational site-based learning experiences. Discover Texas Field Trip staff members handle all details, including round-trip charter bus transportation, reservations, and TEKS-based program curriculum, so participating teachers can focus on their students and making connections between the experience and what students are learning in the classroom.

In addition to Discover Texas Field Trips to Austin, Waco/Georgetown, Dallas, and Fort Worth, Education in Action also offers summer Lone Star Leadership Academy camps for outstanding 4th-8th graders. During the weeklong, overnight camps, participants experience significant Texas sites in Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin/San Antonio, or Houston/Galveston with Texas educators and a focus on leadership.

Discover Texas Field Trips are presented by Education in Action, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to fostering educated and involved young people. For more information about Education in Action visit www.educationinaction.org and www.facebook.com/educationinaction
