Pine Tree Academy's annual Door Decorating Contest was, as usual, a great success. Mrs. Gepford came back to help Mrs. Asenjo and the students in Kindergarten count food items by groups of 10. They spent the most time at Mrs. Tyson's classroom door as her class came in FIRST with a total of 221 food items. The rest of the rankings are as follows:
7th & 8th Grade: 221 items
5th & 6th Grade: 66 items
1st & 2nd Grade: 65 items
3rd & 4th Grade: 62 items
Pre K & K: 43 items
The Office: 42 items
Senior Class: 12 items
Thank you for voting! Until next year...when Mrs. Tyson can again beat Mrs. Glover!
National Honor Society (NHS) is a national organization created to acknowledge exceptional high school students. It seeks to recognize students that stand out academically, display or have some sort of leadership position, helps others/the community through service and volunteer work, and have a positive and kind character. PTA is very proud of the students that have been selected this year for National Honor Society!
Give thanks for each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything thy goodness sends.

On Friday November 15, the elementary students hosted their grandparents (or honorary grandparents) in fun fellowship and food. Each class had a part in a program at the beginning, and then grades 5 - 8 served a Thanksgiving meal. This event is a fall favorite and will continue for many years to come. Happy Thanksgiving!
