Pines ES celebrated the first Making a Difference ceremony of this school year. Several time a year, staff members nominate students who they believe went above and beyond with an extraordinary act of kindness or who have helped in a significantly, extraordinary way. Congratulations to this group of Making a Difference award recipients!. Click on the title to view more photos from this ceremony.
In addition to their bi-monthly visit to the Arbors Assisted Living Facility in Hauppauge, on Tuesday December 18th, the Pines Future Corp Club made a special holiday visit to the residents.

Pines staff and students gathered together the morning of December 21st, comfortably dressed in pajamas, to sing holiday songs at our annual Pines Holiday Sing-A-Long. Mrs. Wray-Dolgin practices holiday songs with students throughout the month of December. Each grade is assigned a particular song to perform together. In between grade level performances, all staff and students sing other songs all together. What a great way for staff & students to celebrate the holidays together before the Winter Break!

The HS Varsity Club spread holiday cheer to Pines K-2 students by visiting each classroom while singing holiday songs. Santa and Buddy the Elf even had time to stop for a photo with each class! A big thank you to Mr. Lionetti, Mrs. Soltan, and Mr. Aiello for organizing this visit. Click on the title to view more photos from this event.
