Pinewood Educators to Participate in Innovation Institute

Pinewood Elementary third grade teacher, Courtney Reaves, and lead learner, Karen Norton, have been selected to participate in the Innovation Institute June 7 and 8 in Springdale.

Their session, Engaging Readers and Writers Using #Booksnaps, provides a fun, creative way for students to reflect as they study their notes, read books or interact with any type of text. This unique tool can also be used by adult learners to chart their own learning during book studies, note taking or personal journaling.

The Innovation Institute, now in its third year, provides educators a variety of opportunities to explore the potential of educational technology and best practices in schools across the state. More information about the Institute can be found at Innovation Institute.

Celebrating National School Breakfast Week

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and schools provide millions of breakfasts to hungry children every single school day!  This gives us reason to celebrate! 

Every March, the nation celebrates National School Breakfast Week. National School Breakfast Week was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program to all children.

Governor Asa Hutchinson has proclaimed March as Arkansas School Breakfast Month!

Governor Hutchinson’s proclamation increases public awareness, provides school food service administrators a wonderful opportunity to promote the breakfast program, benefiting thousands of students in Arkansas.

JNPSD’s Director of Child Nutrition Clint Walker spoke of the District’s Community Eligibility Program where all students eat free at today’s press conference at the Capitol.
