Dear Parents and Friends of PTH,
The Bullpups had another great week of learning and growing. Thank you for all you do to help support our effort of building vocabulary. We have started putting a vocabulary word of the day on our morning news show. Our morning news show is on Youtube now! I encourage you to watch the show everyday and review the vocabulary with your child at home. The web address is: https://www.youtube.com/user/pthbullpups. The news show is archived so you can watch it anytime that it is convenient for you and your family.
We celebrated the PTO cookie dough fundraiser with a showing of the Monsters Inc. movie on Thursday. We had loads of fun while celebrating our students’ fundraising accomplishments. Thank you to everyone that participated!
A host of fun and learning happened on Thursday. Grade levels celebrated the upcoming winter break with a showing of the Polar Express with lots of accompanying academic activities.
Pine Tree Hill has decided that we will travel to the State House this year to celebrate the SC Read-in on April 14. We plan to take the entire school to a day of reading with our friends from around the state!!! We need SLED approved chaperones and community supporters. Please let your child’s teacher know if you able to assist. More information will be coming. Please visit the SC Readin-In website at http://read-in-sc.org/.
This time of the year we often count our blessing and give thanks to those that mean so much. I want to express my eternal gratitude to the bullpup students, parents, teachers, assistants, and office staff for all they do everyday. I am truly blessed to be a part of the Bullpup Family! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season full of family and fun times. I look forward to seeing you in 2015!
As always, please let Mrs. Hartis and I know how we may be supportive to you or your student.
With Bullpup Pride,
Melissa Royalty, Ed. S.
