The students in Class 3-2 became detectives as they wrapped up their TC mystery unit. Each student was assigned a detective squad and given a mystery to solve. Students logged onto kids.mysterynet.com and solved the mystery that was in their top secret envelope. The detectives needed to identirfy the crime, gather clues and watch out for red herrings. We're happy to report that all crimes were solved! Click on the photo or title to view more pictures from this event.
Thank you to the Pines PTA for their generous support in arranging for author, David A. Adler to visit Pines ES on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. David A. Adler has written more than 250 books for young readers including the Cam Jansen Mysteries. You can check out his websites at www.CamJansen.com and www.DavidAAdler.com. During his interactive program, he showed students his writing process, as students followed a book from an idea and then through the research, writing, revision, editing, illustration, and printing processes. Mr. Adler also signed books for our students who purchased them through this special event. We had a wonderful time learning from him!
This year’s Pines Elementary School Career Day for our 4th and 5th grade students was a great success! Students spent the day attending presentations about various careers, including an FDNY firefighter, a physician assistant, an acupuncturist, and even an ice sculptor. Additionally, each of our 5th grade students had the opportunity to hear about college from a college admissions representative from Hofstra University. These presentations were all given by our wonderful parents, who volunteered their time and enthusiasm as a part of our Career Day program. It was an exciting day for our students and we are already looking forward to next year’s Career Day! Click on the photo or the title to view more pictures from this event.
