Pacific This Week

April 21, 2019



PACIFIC’S Teacher of the YEAR: We are thrilled to announce that Pacific’s Teacher of the Year is Michele Jordan.  Michele is a talented, creative and intelligent teacher who provides her students with a wide variety of learning experiences.  She encourages independence and supports student growth in problem solving and self-advocacy.  Michele shows great interest in each of her students, as she gets to know them well, she wisely incorporates this knowledge into lessons that are challenging and engaging.  Michele is a constant collaborator and team player.  Her sensitivity to others and sense of humor make Michele a joy to work with and an asset to Pacific.

Congratulations to Michele Jordan you are truly a super star and we are proud to name you as our Pacific Teacher of the Year.

Safety First:  Several 1st and 2nd grade parents have been double parking on Pacific Avenue.  This is dangerous and illegal.  The local PD will be coming by to ticket anyone they see doing this.  Remember that we had a pedestrian hit by a car in the fall and we are trying to avoid a child being hit. 

Thank you to Catherine Bae and Shari Strulson for a successful and fun Science Night!  The kids were engaged and having a great time.  Thank you also to the volunteers who helped throughout the evening.

HALLOWEEN…IN APRIL?? The Pacific community takes great pride in emphasizing the values of positivity, respect, inclusiveness, dependability and empathy with our staff, parents, and students.  In an effort to be true to our continued mission, Pacific will not encourage nor endorse the 5th grade boys dressing up as cheerleaders and the girls as football players for Halloween. At any time of year, students should not wear costumes that degrade or make fun of other people or group of people, or one that is disrespectful or mimics people in any way related to race, color, religion or creed, national origin, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or citizenship. Violation of this school policy will result in the student changing into regular school clothes. Thank you for your support.  This will be effective this coming October and forevermore.
