Thank you to everyone who came out to the Movie Night on Friday. We hoped it help get everyone in the Holiday Spirit. Big Thank you to Santa and his helper Elf Pioneer Pete for coming and hanging out with the kids.
Also, thank you to everyone who came and shopped at our Book Fair last week and donated to the coin challenge. With all the coin donations, our teachers were able to the shop with $865.66 to help replenish their class room libraries. How exciting! Also, the best part is Scholastic matches that amount raised and will be donating books to underprivileged kids.
Lastly, big thank you to all the volunteers who helped put on both events for our Pioneers. Many hands make light work.
Reindeer Lane Holiday Shoppe - December 18th - 20th
A Brand new Holiday Boutique Shoppe will be next week - December 18th through the 20th. Give your child the joy of holiday shopping on their own within a limited budget. Prices will range from $1 - $20. 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.
Tuesday, December 18th - 9:15 am - 1:30 pm
Kids will do a little window shopping during their scheduled classroom visit to the holiday shop during our preview day.
Wednesday, December 19th - 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
Kids can shop during classroom visits, recess, lunch and after-school
Thursday, December 20th - 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
Kids can finish their shopping during classroom visits, recess, lunch and after-school
We are always looking for volunteers to help us work the Holiday Shoppe and help give our Pioneers a great shopping experience. If you're available to volunteer during the shoppe hours above, please make sure to complete the School Volunteer information sheet ASAP and email our Holiday Shoppe chair Michelle Hubbell at Michellehubbell07@gmail.com

Join the Pinetree PTA!
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. The Pinetree PTA was able to increase the membership count in the 2017-18 year by over 10% over the 2016-17 school year. Let's show that we can do it again.
