It was another great week of learning at Pine Tree Hill! I have been very impressed with the learning activities our teachers have planned for your children. As you know, our academic focus for the 2014-2015 school year is to ensure all students succeed in the area of math. I encourage you to have your child talk to you about what they are learning in math. Encourage them to give you at least one “I Can Statements” daily. This will assist your children in working on their math vocabulary and explaining the process they learned that day.
I would like to congratulate Mr. Randy Self in being named the 2014-2015 Reading Teacher of the Year at Pine Tree Hill! Mr. Self is a phenomenal reading teacher and this honor is much deserved. Mr. Self utilizes technology to enhance the learning experience in his reading instruction. He is not only a great teacher, but also a wonderful colleague. Mr. Self has lead several professional development sessions to assist us in becoming better reading teachers. We are proud of Mr. Self and his contributions to his students and to Pine Tree Hill!
Please plan to join us on Thursday, October 23 for our annual Fall Festival. Festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are only $.25 each. We have a host of games, prizes and food options available. We look forward to seeing you and your family there! Remember that every penny of the proceeds go back to the grade level teams so they can purchase instructional supplies they need.
Mrs. Hartis and I am here to support the teachers, you and your child in this journey of learning. Please let Mrs. Hartis and I know how we may be of assistance to you.
With Bullpup Pride,
Mrs. Royalty, Principal
