From the Principal

Dear Friends of PTH, 

  This was a busy week! The bullpups had a wonderful week of learning and growing! I am so proud of the gains our students are making, both academically and socially. 
  Thank you to everyone that came out to support our students during the the Wax Museum and Chorus Productions on Thursday night. I heard many positive comments from parents and community members! I also want to thank the faculty and staff, students, community and parents for all their hard work to create a wonderful Read Across America Day! I LOVE that we celebrated the joy of reading! The Reader’s Theater that our 4th and 5th grade students participated in was a wonderful experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. The character parade performed by our our Kinderpups, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade was PAWSome! The Math Bowl has been a huge success at Pine Tree Hill! 
  The Math Bowl has given opportunity to our students to become problem solvers. I am very impressed with the mathematicians we have at PTH! Stop by the Math Bowl winners circle to check out our winners! The bulletin board outside of the main office has the winners’ pictures as well as their winning entry. Keep up the great work, Bullpups!
  As always, Mrs. Hartis and I are here to support you and your child. Please let us know how we may be of assistance to you. 

With Bullpup Pride, 
Mrs. Royalty, Principal
