My name is Lisa Piskule and teach 5th grade. 

I am excited to begin my 13th year in District 70 and 12th year at Adler Park School in fifth grade. I graduated from the University of Colorado in 2005 with a degree in Marketing. I then began my career working for Coca-Cola, and after five years with the company, decided to pursue my dream and go back to school at National-Louis University for my Master's degree in Education. Teaching is my passion and I am truly blessed to work in District 70. 

My husband and I have three school aged children; Eden, Emery, and Noah. We love going to the park, riding bikes, reading together, and playing with our dog, Rusty.

Calling All Peaches

The Peachy News

By: Laine 

This week was extremely eventful because this was the week that the gifted children got to go to camp duncan where they solved puzzles and made new friends. I personally know that because I went to camp duncan and made like five new friends. Some of the activities they did were trying to fold a sheet that has a ton of people on top of it. Another activity they did was connecting arms like a caterpillar and walking over and under string without touching it. Everyone had a blast. In other news the bago tournament started and Raegan, Avery W., and Lily are currently in first with Laine, Ines, and Kylie trailing close behind.

Tuesday: On Tuesday we practiced for our bago tournament in PE. We also learned about civilization when we started reading our book in our new reading unit.

Wednesday: On Wednesday we had art in which we drew ghosts for halloween. We were also rushing all around the classroom trying to get everything ready for parent teacher conferences. 

Thursday: On Thursday we had a library where we got to read three halloween books. After the library we learned about subject and predicate, we also learned about rephrasing quotes from the text. Luckily today we had an early release and tomorrow we didn't have school.

Extra Extra, Peach All About IT!

By-Avery W.

On Monday, we started off with new desks. We were a little bit chatty. We got to have our very first peach pride day! We even got a picture of our class taken by Mrs.Miller. Our class worked very hard all week, in school and out of school. We didn’t have a lot of trouble with 5x5 this week, and a lot of people got into merit Friday.

Our Week-By Kylie

New Student 

We have a new student to our sweet 16!!! Her name is  Lillie. She lived in Texas for 7 years. Then she moved to New Hampshire for 3 years. After that she moved here! Her cousins live in the area their names are, Hannah, Heather, and Ashlynn. She loves to write books. That's it about our new gator.

5 by 5 

This is a reminder about the 5 by 5s. A 5 by 5 is your only way into Merit  Friday. When you get a check or dot  on your 5 by 5 don´t worry it is a good thing! But when you get a circle you have to miss time. Three circles you are out! If you have work that you did not finish then you have to do that during Merit Friday.


Peach Week

By: Avery W.

This week we had officer speeches for student council on Tuesday.

There was an assembly for third, fourth, and fifth graders at 9:00 A.M. Also during the assembly we had NO secretary which was a problem. But then we did the speeches for historian.  Nina and Paloma both ran for this position. After them were the people running for president/ vice president. There were four people running!!! Those people were Nick, Cole Laine, and me, Avery.


After everyone did their speeches everyone at the assembly went back to their classrooms and voted for who they think should get historian and president/vice president. At the end of the day since we didn't have anyone running for secretary the cannadits that didn't get elected  got to put their names in a hat and the one Ms. Carr pulled out was the one that got the role of secretary.


When Ms. Carr announced who got the roles of student council then Paloma got Historian, Nina got Secretary, Nick got Vice President, and I myself Avery got President!  

Overall this week was pretty good.
