A big thank you to Barnes and Noble of Burlington for sponsoring Mac Barnett, author, and Jon Klassen, author/illustrator, to visit Pine Glen Elementary School this morning! Students and staff greatly enjoyed their presentation and discussion on the process of writing a book.
Students from Burlington High School visited Pine Glen Elementary School today. Included in the group were many former Pine Glen students. The students performed some parts of the play Peter Pan for the elementary students. If interested in purchasing tickets, please see my blog post from March 6 which has ticket information.
Stop by Barnes and Noble in Burlington today to purchase some books and beverages...proceeds go to the Pine Glen Library Learning Commons. Tomorrow all students at Pine Glen will hear Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen talk about their new book, Triangle. We are so excited and appreciate Barnes and Noble for making this happen! If you attend, please let the cashier know you’re there for Pine Glen. Books can be purchased online as well using the book fair #12096186.

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.
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.
