5 Star Generals

Congratulations to all our 5 Star Generals!

The Pine Glen Reading Corps is a program designed to encourage children to read on their own time. Students complete a chart recording their reading and bring it into school. Once students complete enough charts and move through the 14 ranks they become a 5 Star General. Students have their name announced over the intercom system, receive a certificate and a prize. This program has been in place at Pine Glen Elementary School for over 35 years. Thank you very much to the PTO for their continued commitment to funding this great program!
