From the Principal

Dear Friends of Pine Tree Hill,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year! The 2014-2015 motto is, “PAWS for Learning – Positive Attitudes With Success.” I hope that the summer months have provided you with some rest, relaxation, and an opportunity to rejuvenate, because this is going to be a great year!

Pine Tree Hill Elementary School has been a busy place this summer. In addition to the excitement of the various summer programs throughout Camden, you may have heard about the building renovations we have accomplished. The carpet in the classrooms have been removed and replaced with tile. The carpet in the main office was also replaced. Classrooms will receive rugs large enough for groups. We have added a new conference room as well as the PTO purchased curtains and beautiful murals for the hallways. Our school is looking great!
We have some fabulous teachers joining the Bullpup TEAM! Please join me in welcoming our new staff members.
