Summer Reading at Pine Glen

What is the one thing parents can do to help their children retain all that hard work and progress they achieved this past school year? Get as many books as you can (print or digital) into the hands of your children and let them Read, Read, Read this summer.

And please don't forget--summer reading is all about reading for fun. Letting your children choose what they want to read not only builds good readers but life-long readers, too. All kinds of reading counts.

Below check out all the new things happening this summer for Pine Glen students and families.  If you have any questions about any of the programs or policies this summer, please contact me at

Happy Summer Reading!

Message From the PTO

Dear Members,
We need a few parents to help serve refreshments after the moving-up ceremony for fifth graders on Thursday, June 14th from 6 - 8 p.m.  (The moving-up ceremony begins at 6:30). Parents of fifth graders will already have set up the room.  We just need a few people to serve cake, fruit salad, & drinks and clean up afterward.
TO DATE WE ONLY HAVE ONE VOLUNTEER!  We need a few parents of non-fifth graders to step up.  We do not expect parents of the Class of 2012 to volunteer, but rather enjoy time with their child and fellow parents for their final gathering at Pine Glen.  The same will be done for you when your child "graduates."
If you can help, please contact Joanna DeFrancesco at  We truly appreciate any time you can give.
Thank you so much,
Maria Woods and the Pine Glen PTO Board
