A driving philosophy at NPES is that students learn from each other as much as they do from teachers. Our preschool students partner with older students to reinforce learning while the older students enjoy becoming role models for the preschoolers. Examples include pre-reading and pre-writing opportunities as well as foundational skills for math. Additionally, the third graders helped preschool students take pictures of the letters they found in nature. For the Fun Run, older students teamed up with preschool students to encourage them to run farther and faster.
