FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

This is one of my favorite times of the year! Friends and family gathering together to share in the joy of the Christmas season. December is such a busy month with trying to get your last minute shopping, cooking, and cleaning done to ring in the New Year. Try to take a minute to enjoy your child during this crazy time of year!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our Pine Island Family to Yours!


- Mrs. Stacy Reehl

Santa Shop

We will have our annual Santa Shop at Pine Island December 13-21. This gives the students a chance to shop for family members on their own. Most items are $5 and under. Information will be coming home.... We are still in need of some volunteers--if you are interested, please contact Mrs. Reehl @ 254-5504 or sreehl@cppschools.com Thanks!

BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

We are starting our 3rd year of Battle of the Books here at Pine Island! All grades will be open to participate. This is a great opportunity for your child to read, read, read! There is a specific book list (we have all the books at school to check out) and in the spring they will "battle" to answer questions on the books that they read. Winning team gets a trophy!

FLU SEASON

It's that time of the year again, please listen to your child if they are not feeling well before school. Do not send them if they have a fever, diarrhea, or are vomiting. It makes your child miserable and also exposes their classmates. If you child is too ill to go out for recess, they are too ill to attend school. All students will participate in recess activities.

ONE CAN, TWO CAN, WHO CAN, YOU CAN!

We are collecting can goods and non perishable food items for the families right here in Comstock Park. We will be collecting through December 22. This is a great service project for our students to impact their own community. Continue to send them in!! Thanks in advance!

HELP MAKE FEET HAPPY!

We are still collecting new and gently used shoes through December 22. Our students have done an amazing job but we could still use some more!! If you still have any or were coordinating with your work, please get these to us by December 22. Thanks!!
