Feature of the Week

Pine Tree Hill Elementary had a wonderful week celebrating Grandparents with all our students and their families.  We enjoyed seeing everyone and appreciate all you do for our students.  It is always nice to see so many Bullpups current and former gathered in one place.

Upcoming Events

Fall Book Fair

We will be holding our annual Fall Book Fair the week of September 14th thru 19th.  Students will be bringing home information on the books/items available for purchase.  Classes will be previewing the Fair during the week and students will be allowed to take home a wish list to share with their families.  Parents are welcome to come in and purchase books with their children before and after school, stay tuned for days and times.  Remember....
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!



Fall Pictures

Pine Tree Hill will have photographers on site Tuesday, September 30th for our Fall Pictures.  Please be on the look out for this information.  If you have any questions please contact your teacher or the school ahead of time.  If students are not available for pictures, a Makeup Day will be scheduled. 

PBIS Store Opens

The Bullpup PBIS Store will open the week of September 15th.  Students who have earned signatures on their Bullpup Pawsome Card and points in Class Dojo will be allowed to visit the store to trade signatures/points in for a reward.  Make sure your Bullpups know that the store is stocked with some fun items this year and we can not wait to treat them for their "Pawsitive" behavior.

Chick-fil-A Spirit Night

Chick-fil-A will be hosting a Pine Tree Hill Spirit Night on Thursday, September 18th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.  A portion of the evenings proceeds will come back to the school to use for instructional purposes.  We heard the "Cow" and possibly "Barky" will be in attendance.  Please come out and support out school/students while enjoying a great meal.  We look forward to seeing you all there!



From the Principal

Dear Parents and Friends of PTH,

Thank you to all that assisted us with the Wal-Mart Pack-a-Bus project. With your support, we had the largest contributions of any Kershaw County School. Wal-Mart graciously donated $300 to PTH to be used for instructional supplies. I also want to thank of you that supported our Book Fair! The proceeds from the Book Fair assists us in building and maintaining our school library.
Interim reports will be sent home with students on Wednesday, September 17. Please take a moment to review the interim report with your child. After you have reviewed the interim, work with your child to set goals for the end of the 9-weeks. Help your child to think of three strategies they can use to help them achieve their end of the 9-week goals. I encourage you to speak with your child’s teacher on a regular basis to see how your child is performing and get suggestions of strategies you can use at home to help your child be successful. I encourage you to schedule an appointment with your child’s teacher if you would like a conference. Teachers’ phone extensions are included in this week’s newsletter.
As always, I am here to assist you in meeting the needs of your child. Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of teaching your child!

With Bullpup Pride,

Melissa Royalty, Ed.S
Principal, PTH
