Pines ES had its first Peaceful School Bus meeting on September 17th. This program was designed to reduce the number of behavior problems on the school bus by creating a greater sense of responsibility and community when riding the school bus. Approximately 4 times a year, students on the same bus route will meet together in our school. These meetings will help students get to know each other and learn how to behave and act responsibly on the school bus.
Pines staff and students dressed in patriotic colors, said the Pledge of Allegiance, and sang a patriotic song together in our gymnasium. We usually remember this day as a school community out front around our flag pole, but due to inclement weather we gathered inside in our gymnasium this year.
Students arrived at Pines ES on the first day of school looking relaxed and refreshed and ready to start a new school year! Upon arrival, all were surprised to see a big Welcome Back to School sign placed in the front of the school. A big thank you to our wonderful PTA for surprising us with this beautiful display.
