Pierce County Sex Offender Notification
Principals will be notified directly by Pierce County if a Level 1 or Level 2 Offender moves within
100 feet of their school; however, in the event a Level 3 moves into the community the District will be notified. The most efficient method for families to remain aware of the registered offenders in our community is to access the Pierce County Sex Offender website:
Secondary Supplemental Reading List 2014
This spring, middle and high school teachers and librarians from across the district collaborated to revise our Supplemental Reading List to supplement the new edition of the SpringBoard curriculum and Common Core State Standards.
The purposes of the project are:
- to support teachers, librarians, parents, and students in choosing high-quality, engaging novels at each grade level for independent reading, literature circles, and/or reading support.
- to deepen student understanding and application of themes and strategies in the curriculum.
- to support the Common Core State Standards requirements that students read more complex texts more frequently.
It is preferable to make an appointment with our office manager, Lena Rudquist at 253.530.1905. If you would like to tour our school please call to schedule an appointment.

Implementation of the Common Core Standards
During the next school year Peninsula School District will begin a two-year implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics and English Language Arts. These standards were developed to define the knowledge and skills students should attain to be prepared to succeed in college and career.
Continuing are the high quality teaching practices that you see in our district. Some changes you will see in the classroom include emphasis in reading more informational and complex texts, writing to justify thinking, and more problem solving and problem-based learning. Knowledge and skills to be mastered at each grade level are clearly stated and reflect higher standards.
A brief introduction to Common Core Standards for each grade level can be found on the National PTA website, http://pta.org/content.cfm?ItemNumber=2796.
The new assessments that correspond to the CCSS will be implemented in the spring of 2015.
We will continue to keep you updated throughout our two-year implementation process.
