The PTA counted all of the Box Tops that came in the first week back to school. The total count for the summer collection was 2,263 Box Tops which will bring in $226.30 to the Pinetree PTA. Congratulations to Mrs. Storch's class who brought in the most Box Tops and won the Popsicle Party! Keep collecting, we will have more contests through out the school year which will include the one class in upper and lower grades that bring the most through out the whole year will win a special party at year end!
This year, we're debuting the Academic Olympics (formally known as the "Tri-R-Athon"). Students have been split up into 6 color teams and will be earning points for their color in 2 ways. 1 point will be earned for every dollar raised during the pledge drive, which starts today and runs for 2 weeks. Points will also be given out on Friday, September 9, during our Survivor-style relay race, which will have fun obstacles and cover 5 academic topics (English, Math, Science, Current Events and Problem solving). Colors were assigned today, and fliers have been sent home with your student's color. Stay tuned for more information...
