Reindeer Lane Holiday Shoppe - December 18th - 20th
A Brand new Holiday Boutique Shoppe will be coming in December. Give your child the joy of holiday shopping on their own within a limited budget. Prices will range from $1 - $10. The shop will be located in Room 24 this year.
New this year, instead of sending cash with your student to shop, the holiday shoppe company will allow parents to purchase vouchers online via debit/credit card/paypal. You pick the amount you want to load on the voucher, pay, print it out and send it in with your student. You can even designate on the certificate how much you would like your student to spend on each person they're buying for and our volunteers will help them shop. Please note that the full amount of the voucher needs to be spent in the store and change cannot be given. Click the button below to purchase a voucher on the Reindeer Lane website.
Please note this is not a PTA fundraiser, just a service provided by the Pinetree PTA. All items are sold at cost.

Let's see if we can bypass last year's membership total. If you haven't joined the Pinetree PTA, make sure to join today! We're less than 30 members away from passing last year's total!
As you can see, we have kicked off our Membership drive with a cool "Rock & Roll" theme because Pinetree PTA Members Rock!
Come join the Pinetree PTA and have a voice in your child's education. Please note that joining the PTA doesn't require you to attend the meetings or volunteer although we and your students would LOVE if you did.
