Hello! My name is Jessica Asenjo and I am excited to be the new Pre K and Kindergarten teacher at Pine Tree Academy! My family and I recently moved to Maine from Michigan where we have lived for 3 years while my husband, Ramsey was attending seminary. We have a nine year old daughter, Sarai, and a black and white cat named Toby.
In 2008 I graduated from Walla Walla University with my bachelors in elementary education and music minor. I am passionate about teaching and have several years of teaching in multi grade classrooms and providing childcare to families. I enjoy music and can play piano, clarinet and guitar. I won’t say no to mint Oreos and love to read every night before falling asleep. I am looking forward to being a part of the PTA family and can’t wait to meet everyone!

Ms. Diana Tunnell, our new math teacher, has enjoyed teaching over the last seventeen years. Before moving to Pine Tree Academy with her husband and daughter, Ms. Tunnell taught at Greater Boston Academy. She has administrative and teaching experience at both the high school and elementary levels. Ms. Tunnell loves the variety the Adventist Educational system has offered to enhance her teaching experience beyond her certification focus of secondary math education and has a particular interest in integrating STEM learning activities into her classroom. Ms. Tunnell is looking forward to the opportunity to lead and grow spiritually alongside her students and peers at Pine Tree Academy. When not teaching Ms. Tunnell loves working on crafty projects, cuddling with her fur babies and spending time with her family outside in God’s second book.
On Friday evening, May 31, 2019, the Bell Ringers performed at Brunswick Seventh-day Adventist Church. This was the annual farewell concert for senior students. This year, there is only one senior in the group, Beth Thomas. Best of luck Beth!!
Students were honored this evening, May 22, 2019, at the annual Sports Gala. Thanks to all of the parents, students, and supporters who have made this a fantastic year for athletics. Finally, a special THANK YOU to our Athletic Director, Josh Dayen, for the time, energy, and resources he so selflessly gives to the students and programming at Pine Tree Academy.
Students participating in senior fitness class, led by Garrett Trubey, ran in the Mother's Day 5K race on Sunday, May 12. Congratulations to all who completed the race, particularly, Jobet Tardiff, who finished 3rd in his age group. Garret Trubey also finished 3rd in his (much older) age group.
Each year Camp Lawroweld invites volunteers to participate in a clean up day to get the camp ready for summer activities. Students in fifth and sixth grade joined the clean up and helped rake leaves and pine needles around the boys cabin area. Everyone worked hard and had a lot of fun.
