Colorado Children’s Book Awards (CCBA)
The James C. Hill Real Estate Company, Thornton’s longest, continuously operating real estate company, has pledged another year of continued support of our Pinnacle Library.
This year, Mr. Hill and his son, Jay Hill, will be supporting our efforts to participate in the Colorado Children’s Book Awards (CCBA) by donating funds to purchase multiple copies, including some ebook versions, of each of the 20 titles nominated for the 2015 award.
The CCBA program allows children all over the State to vote for their favorite book from a list of Primary or Junior level nominated books. Children must read at least three of the nominated books to be able to vote. Voting at The Pinnacle, will take place near the end of February. The CCBA reading efforts will be coordinated by Mrs. Stainton, our Librarian, and Mrs. Susan Gorrell, of our Elementary Literacy Team.
Hill Real Estate has been a supporter of The Pinnacle since early in the school’s history. In fact, if you have visited our library you will notice the brass plaque outside the door that tells one and all the library was dedicated as The Marie J. Hill Library, in memory of Mr. Hill’s wife, and Jay’s mother, Marie, an avid reader and book lover. Over the years the Hill Family has assisted with projects such as library tables and chairs, matching library shelves, large screen televisions, AV carts, and DVD players and this past summer, another lighting project in the library. A big thank you goes, once again, to James C. Hill Real Estate for its continued support.
Story on Channel 7 News
As some of you may be aware, The Pinnacle Charter School was recently featured in a Channel 7 News story. This news story followed *Tac-One as they provided some Pinnacle staff members with defense training called “Teachers Fight Back”.
This type of training only provided options on how to defend staff and their students if an active shooter was attempting to gain entry into the classroom. This training does not advise teachers to go after an active shooter nor does it replace the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). This training only gave ideas on what to do if an active shooter is attempting to come into a classroom. If the staff member feels comfortable in attempting to confront an active shooter if they make entry into the classroom, they have the training to do so.
The Pinnacle Charter School believes student safety is a top priority and will continue to seek new and up to date training to prepare our staff for emergency situations.
Como algunos de ustedes sabrán, La Escuela Pinnacle Charter fue presentado recientemente en una historia de Canal 7 Noticias. Esta noticia siguió * Tac-Uno ya que ofrecían algunos miembros del personal de Pinnacle con la formación de defensa llamado "Los maestros se defienden".
Este tipo de entrenamiento sólo proporciona opciones sobre la manera de defender el personal y sus estudiantes si un una persona entra disparando y esta tratando de entrar ha la clase. Esta formación nose les recomienda a los maestros para ir después de una persona que entro disparando ni sustituye el Protocolo de Respuesta Estándar (SRP). Esta formación sólo dio ideas sobre qué hacer si un una persona entra disparando y/o esta tratando de entrar ha un salón de clases. Si el miembro del personal se siente cómodo en el intento de estar de frente a un una persona que este disparando y/o estan tratando de entran en al salón de clases, tienen el entrenamiento para hacerlo.
La Escuela Pinnacle Charter cree que la seguridad de los estudiantes es una prioridad y seguiramos buscando nuevas formaciónes para preparar a nuestro personal para situaciones de emergencia.

ConocoPhillips had a school drive this year and had a large amount of extra school supplies. Ron Robinson and Neil Wiese coordinated with Cyndi Bassing to give this wonderful gift to Pinnacle.
This allowed us to give students supplies this year that were unable to purchase them. We also have supplies to help students next year too.

Important Letter from the Executive Director
Dear Pinnacle Community:
We are very excited to let you know that our board has authorized us to look for a new property where we will be able to expand our program offerings in Arts, Science, and Athletics, and strengthen our K-12 focus. We’ve asked a real estate firm to look for opportunities, as well as determine the market for our current properties. Thus, if you hear that the Pinnacle is for sale, it is only because we’re trying to see if there are potential buyers.
We will be conducting parent focus groups in the near future to gather information and feedback from you to help us sharpen and expand our focus into areas that matter to parents and students.
This is an exciting opportunity for the entire Pinnacle community. We want to keep all of you informed about what we are doing and dispel any rumors which may arise. We’ll let you know about decisions which may be made to make changes – or not make changes. Please feel free to send me an e-mail (email@example.com) with any questions you may have.
“We are Pinnacle!”
William K. Wiener, Ph.D.
Estimada padres de Pinnacle en la comunidad:
Estamos muy entusiasmados de saber que nuestro consejo nos ha autorizado a buscar una nueva propiedad, donde podremos ampliar nuestras ofertas de programas en Artes, Ciencias y atletismo, y fortalecer nuestra K-12 . Hemos pedido a una empresa de bienes raíces en busca de oportunidades, así como determine el mercado para nuestras propiedades actuales. Por lo tanto, si usted oye que el Pinnacle está a la venta, es sólo porque estamos tratando de ver si hay compradores potenciales.
Nosotros conduciremos grupos de enfoque de padres en el futuro para obtener información y comentarios de ustedes para ayudar a perfeccionar y ampliar nuestro enfoque en las áreas que son importantes para los padres y estudiantes.
Esta es una oportunidad emocionante para toda la comunidad de Pinnacle. Queremos mantener a todos informados acerca de lo que estamos haciendo y despejar los rumores que puedan surgir. Les dejaremos saber a usted sobre las decisiones que se pueden hacer para hacer cambios - o si no hacemos cambios. Por favor, de enviarme un e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) con cualquier pregunta que pueda tener..
William K. Wiener, Ph.D.
