From the Principal

Dear Friends of Pine Tree Hill, 

  We had another great week of growing and learning at Pine Tree Hill! We celebrated our 100th day of school by collecting soda can tops for the Ronald McDonald House and coins that we donated to the Kershaw County Animal Shelter. I am proud of our students’ dedication to helping others! Way to go, Bullpups!!! 

  We will celebrate National School Counseling week from February 2-7. Mrs. Conto and Dr. Ross are wonderful assets to PTH. We are lucky to have wonderful guidance counselors that meet the needs of all our students. If you can, please let these wonderful ladies know how much they mean to you and your child! 

  The PTO and Student Council have teamed up to help raise money for our trip to the SC Read-In at the State House. We will be selling candy-grams and Barky Singing Grams from February 2 - 11 with delivery on February 11. Be on the look out for more information in the near future. Just remember that all proceeds will be used for the Bullpups trip to the SC Read-In! 

   Mrs. Hartis and I are here to support you and your child. Please let us know if we can ever be of assistance. 

 With Bullpup Pride,

 Mrs. Royalty,
 Principal

Math Bowl at PTH

  PTH will be holding a weekly Math Bowl from February 2nd thru March 13th.  Students from Kindergarten to 5th Grade will be given a word problem at the beginning of each week.  They will be asked to solve the problem showing grammar and reasoning skills displaying multiple ways to arrive at their answers.  Winners will be selected each Friday based on their meeting the above requirements.  Winners will receive school wide recognition as well as other prizes.  It is PTH's goal, thru events like the Math Bowl, to encourage students to take an interest in math, increase skills, and prepare them for the next year.  We look forward to seeing what our Bullpups can do!
