Students in grades Pre K-2 were given the opportunity to hear some harp music during elementary music class. Brianna Graves (6th Grade) and Isabelle Graves (9th Grade) shared their talents with the class. Special thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Losey for lugging in the harp for this presentation.
This year, the annual Pine Tree Academy Icebreaker was held on a scorching evening. Students celebrated this start to the school year with a slushy eating contest, ice pounding, balloon stomping, water balloon tossing, food dropping, and the traditional junk scavenger hunt.
Every year, before school starts, students in grades 3 & 4 are invited to Ms. Wiggin's house for fun, games and ice-cream. This is a way for these students to make new friends with their classmates before the school year starts. Special thanks to Ms. Wiggin for making this such a great tradition!
Going off to Newbold College for the British Culture Study Tour, I had no idea what a fantastic time I was going to have. Yes, I knew I was going to see new places and learn new things, but I got so much more than just that. I got to meet people from all over the world and interact with them on a daily basis, try new foods, make new friends, and create deeper connections with the friends I already had on the trip. On top of that, each day of the trip was packed with trips to places all over the United Kingdom including London, Wales, Brighton, Oxford, and Windsor. A few of my favorite things that we did on the trip were afternoon tea in the most quintessential English village, a visit to Stonehenge, and getting to see Phantom of the Opera in London. Overall, it was such a fun trip full of experiences, people, and memories I will have for life!
