Film Crew at Pine Glen Elementary School

We are excited to have a film crew at Pine Glen Elementary School. Linda Hoyt, the author of "Explorations in Nonfiction Writing", filmed instruction for her second edition of a resource called "Conventions and Craft."

The filming is taking place in Mrs. Bourgeois' and Mrs. Visocchi's classrooms. Mrs. Bourgeois, Mrs. Visocchi, Ms. Sacco (our district English Language Arts Coach), and Mr. Lyons were all filmed providing instruction to students too.

It was great to highlight the fantastic writers and teachers we have at Pine Glen Elementary School!

Practice

Tomorrow we are scheduled to have a Lockdown practice at Pine Glen Elementary School. Officer Sheppard, our school resource officer, will be on hand to assist with the practice drill. We are sending home today a copy of "How I can stay safe at school!" to all our Pine Glen families. This resource is helpful to prepare children for emergencies, drills or process what happens after a drill.
