At the end of the school year last year, in all of the art classes at Coggeshall, Cranston-Calvert, Sullivan and Underwood, students created thumbnail sketches of what the new Pell School logo would look like.
Each student sketched anywhere from five to 20 designs. Fifteen finalists emerged, but the winner of the contest was Caitlin McCabe, whose logo now symbolizes the Pell Elementary School. Caitlin is currently a fourth grader at the school and was honored at an assembly, with her peers and parents, for her creativity and ability. Cassandra Paniagua and Michael Sinay Alvarez came in second and third place respectively.
Tucked behind the new Claiborne Pell Elementary School, nestled between basketball courts and the upper school playground, the Pell School Newport Community Garden continues to grow and thrive despite the fast approaching New England winter frosts.
Pell Elementary School is happy to announce that we will kick off another year of the Walking School Bus (WSB) on September 8, 2015. The WSB is a fun and safe walk to school that will ensure your child’s arrival to school on time. Let’s get this bus moving. This is an adventure your kids do not want to miss!
The Newport Family and Child Opportunity Zone will be offering before and after school licensed school-age childcare daily at the Pell School for students in Kindergarten through grade four.
Hour of Code is held from Dec. 8 to Dec. 14 as part of Computer Science Education Week. Yahoo Tech reported that numerous schools created their own Hour of Code events, while the interest in coding generated off last year’s launch brought about the birth of school coding clubs and sparked a movement to “get more kids writing code.”
