Happy Summer!

Hello Pine Glen Community,

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer.  Please take time to read every day and review math facts.  Audio books are great - especially on long car rides.  Also, reading to others or being read to are spectacular ways to read as well.

We have some teachers moving grades this summer.  Mrs. Cunha will be moving to second grade and Mrs. Sheppard will be moving to fifth grade.  Ms. Tigges will be coming back to Pine Glen as a special needs teacher.  We will have four second grade classroom sections, two third grade classroom sections, and three classroom sections at the other grade levels.

During the summer break please enjoy this time with family and friends.  I love receiving postcards from students visiting different vacation spots!
