The 4th graders dressed up as Native Americans and shared facts about the way of life of the Algonquian and the Iroquois Indians. Families were invited to watch the presentation on stage and everyone enjoyed all the delicious desserts provided.
On Tuesday, November 19th PInes Kindergarten students celebrated the 50th day of school. Students and teachers dressed in 1950's attire such as poodle skirts, white t-shirts and leather jackets. A different activity took place in each classroom. One teacher instructed students on making a root beer float craft. Another teacher hosted a "sock hop" where students danced and tried the hula hoop. In the third classroom, students played with toys such as Lincoln Logs, Barbie Dolls and Play Dough. At the conclusion of the day, all students enjoyed real root beer floats. Fun was had by all! Click on the title to view photos from this event.
The Pines community has demonstrated their unbelievable support again this year by giving to those who are less fortunate. Through our Pines “CAN” Help event, the Pines families have donated over 1,200 non-perishable food and household items to Long Island Cares Harry Chapin Food Bank. Students were encouraged to bring in one can of healthy food, a personal care item or a baby necessity for every lap they completed on the Pines track during this event. Physical Education teachers Mrs. Barbieri and Mrs. Kunzig, along with the Pines Student Council, would like to thank all of the students for their contributions and participation in this walking/jogging/food collection event during Physical Education classes. Way to go PINES!!!!
