From the Principal

Dear Friends of PTH,

  The Bullpups enjoyed another busy week of learning and 
growing! Thank you to everyone that attended the awards programs for 4th and 5th grade. I love when we are able to celebrate our student’s accomplishments together! I want to congratulate all the students that participated in the Special Olympics on Friday. I was very proud of our Bullpups! Check 
out our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel for video of our send off! 
  As you know, our school is going to attend the SC Read-In on 
April 14. I just learned that we have the largest school group in the entire state! I also learned that every child will receive a book from the Cocky Reading Express. We are very excited about this fun reading day with our students. A special thank you to our fabulous PTO and all the wonderful parents and teachers that assisted us in preparing and fundraising! 
  The month of April is very busy for the Bullpups! On April 16 we have a Chick-Fil-A night and our All Pro’s Dad breakfast. The Clinic Classic is scheduled for April 18; we are hoping to be the winners of the $750 prize again this year! On April 21 we will participate in the Jump Rope for Heart and on the 23rd we will have our Second Annual Papa John/Kona Ice luncheon with parents. Last, but not least, we have ACT Aspire testing on April 28, 29 and 30. 
  I want to congratulate PTH on winning four SC Public Relations Awards. We won in the areas of photo group, website, newsletter and promotional video! Way to go Bullpups! We also were granted $4,150 from the Belk Corporation. We plan to use the money to create our 21st Century Genius Hour Room! We have a lot of great things happening at PTH!
  Thank you for all you do to make PTH the best elementary 
school in all of SC! I am so proud to be a BULLPUP!

Principal, Melissa Royalty

Upcoming Events

Spring Book Fair

Our Spring Book Fair will begin next week 4/13 thru 4/17.  We encourage everyone to visit with their child and support the "Kids who Read Succeed" cause.  Students will visit the Book Fair with their classes during the week to make a wish list.  Parents are welcome to send money back with their child along with the wish list or may visit from the hours of 7:30 to 3:00 pm.  The Book Fair will be open for extended hours on Tuesday, April 14th due to the school wide field trip that day.  Parents may visit until 5:00 pm.  We will also be offering an online option this year so that parents or extended family may purchase books for their Bullpup.  Please click on the link below that will lead to Scholastic's website.  We appreciate your support as always and look forward to seeing you all!

SC Read-In

On Tuesday April 14th Pine Tree Hill Elementary will be attending the SC Read-In at the State House.  The SC Read-In celebrates libraries and reading.  Students will attend a Book Parade around the grounds and will stay to read their favorite books and have a picnic style lunch.  Buses will depart from the school around 8:00 am and return at 1:30 pm.  As of date, Pine Tree Hill Elementary has the largest number of students attending in the state.  We look forward to a great send off and fun day of sharing our love for reading with others.

Chick-Fil-A Spirit Night
April 16th will be PTH's quarterly Spirit Night at Chick-Fil-A of Camden from the hours of 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  A flyer was sent home for you to take to Chick-Fil-A during this time so that the school will receive a portion of the proceeds that evening.  We appreciate your support and encourage to partake in a great meal while showing your Bullpup Pride!

Clinic Classic
Pine Tree Hill Elementary will participate in the Annual Clinic Classic on Saturday, April 18th in support of the Community Medical Clinic.  Each school in the district was encouraged to have students and staff participate in the cause with the greatest school in attendance receiving a $750.00 donation for their support.  Last year Pine Tree Hill Elementary received this donation and we would like to do so again this year.  Registration for the event will be that morning at 7:30 am beside the United Way Building.  Participants will receive a t-shirt and several other items at this time.  There will be refreshments and a band afterwards.  We hope to see all our Bullpups there for a great morning of fun and exercise!

Jump Rope for Heart
On Tuesday, April 21st PTH will hold its Annual Jump Rope for Heart.  Students received information about the event and were asked to get sponsors to "jump".  During their Related Arts time students will jump in the Multi-Purpose Room and outside for the cause.  The students will receive a light refreshment as well.  Last year the Bullpups raised over $700.00 for the cause and we hope to surpass that amount this year.  Remember to have students bring in their forms and money that day in order to participate.

Papa John's/Kona Ice Family Lunch Day
Thursday, April 23rd PTH will hold the 2nd Annual Papa John's/Kona Ice Family Lunch Day.  Parents are invited to come out and eat lunch with their child "picnic style" in the back car rider circle while partaking in these items.  RSVP forms were sent home, please send these back as soon as possible so that we may plan accordingly.  We hope for this to be a time of fun and fellowship for our Bullpup families!
