The Pines PTA made the staff feel like stars during Staff Appreciation Week. This Oscar themed event was amazing! Delicious food was served on each themed day (breakfast, snacks, dips, dessert, and a big luncheon), awards were given out to several staff members voted on by the 5th grade students, and several lucky raffle winners won 10 minute massages! Many thanks to our PTA for all of your hard work and appreciation shown to the Pines staff. Click on the picture or title to view more photos from this event.
Pines 5th Grade students study Owl Pellets. A pellet is a mass of undigested parts of an owl's diet that they regurgitate. The contents of an owl pellet depends on its diet, but can include bones, fur, feathers, bills, claws, and teeth. Click on the picture or the title to view more photos from this event.
Once again, Pines Has Talent was a huge success raising over $10,000 for Makenzie Cadmus, a Hauppauge community member in need. As always, the students enjoyed sharing their talents, while caring for others. Pines Elementary School held their annual talent show/fundraiser at the Hauppauge High School on Friday, March 24th. Over 70 students participated in the show as cast and crew and over 800 people attended the event. This year our theme was "Back to the 80's", which showcased a wide variety of talents from Michael Jackson's Thriller to Ghostbuster Comedy. "Not only did the children gain confidence on stage, they made friends and honed their talent, whether it is singing, dancing, acting, instrumental, or some unique skill. I believe it is so important to give children the platform to show off their talents and express themselves. I am very grateful that our school embraces this idea and I am very proud to be a part of it. I am also proud of each and every one of the children who participated," said Mrs. Danielle Brady, club advisor. Click on the title or photo to see more pictures from this event.
