Pine Street Press
After our fun Halloween celebrations this week, it is hard to believe we are almost a third of the way through the school year already. Next Friday is the last day of the first Trimester and Monday, November 14th is the first day of the 2nd Trimester. We are excited to see all the progress our students are making already.
Over the last month our WIN Intervention programming has been up and running for both reading and math. Students are meeting 4 days a week with their WIN groups to get targeted instruction in "What I Need." We have some exciting new materials we are utilizing this year thanks to a Wayland Union Education Foundation Grant along with other district grant money. With this targeted instruction along with the quality core instruction in each or our classrooms, we can not wait to see the gains our students make this year.
As we begin the busy holiday season, the month of November is always a time to reflect on the things we are thankful for. As a staff we would like to pass along our thanks to each of you. Your partnership and support is greatly appreciated as we work together to help all our students succeed. Thank you!
Happy Thanksgiving to our Pine Street students and families.
Your partner in education,
Principal, Pine Street Elementary
