Trees







We had two trees at Pine Glen Elementary School taken down today. The arborist determined that the trees were sick and needed to be removed. This proactive move was orchestrated today with the forecast calling for storm with extreme winds and heavy snow.

Then and Now

First grade students in Mrs. Sheppard's classroom were reading Scholastic News on their iPads this morning. The electronic version allows for more applications then the print version.

This brought me back in time to when I was in first grade looking at Weekly Reader. In the 1970's we thought some day in the "future" we might read newspapers on a computer. I don't think back then anyone imagined we would have portable tablets.

Kindergarten Math

Kindergarten Instructional Assistant Emily Miliano was working with students today at a math center. The students were writing math stories and solving the word problems they created.
