Administrator's Message

Hello to all Blue Jay families and all of you interested in joining our Blue Jay community!  Pennington is truly a special place to be, with a high value of education coming from both home and school.  Although we have high expectations of our students, families, and staff, we do reach our goals and then set higher ones!

This year, our focus through our Continuous Improvement Plan, which is aligned with the PWCS Strategic Plan, will be in the following areas:

PWCS Commitment 1 – Learning and Achievement for All

  • Raising achievement (SOL Pass Rate) for Grade 6 Math SOL
  • Raising achievement (SOL Advance Pass Rate) for Hispanic students participating in Reading SOL Grades 3-8

PWCS Commitment 2 – Positive Climate and Culture

  • Raising satisfaction of students feeling safe and included at school

PWCS Commitment 3 – Family and Community Engagement

  • Raising satisfaction of prompt, two-way communication between school and home
  • Raising number of families participating in in-person educational opportunities with their student(s)

We highly encourage all families to be involved – read the weekly newsletters, take action on those items pertaining to your child, ask questions, and participate in events!  Our community is only as strong as your participation in it!  Join us and together we’ll lead your child to success!
