Primary Points to Ponder

Week of August 26 "The Greatest School on Land and Sea"

What a great first week!

Kudos to all of you for a great beginning of 2019-2020 school year! We know that the change this year with PreK and Kinder being mixed in hallways and Kinder camp brought new challenges but as always you rose to the occasion and made Primary a special place to be!


Next week, we will get our routines in place. The systems, procedures and expectations set the next two weeks of school will define the success of your classroom and our campus for the remainder of the year. Repetition, repetition, repetition on communicating your expectations and practicing procedures is the key! Also, remember down time = increase in behavior. Don't hesitate to ask your peers on ideas for times of the day that aren't as efficient as you would like them to be!


We will send out a voicemail to parents at the end of the day thanking them for a great first week and giving them important reminders for next week.


Thank you all for your smiles, your love and your dedication to Pine Tree Primary!

Breakfast Update!

PreK teachers pick up students from library at 7:35. PreK paras will then go to cafeteria to help with breakfast from 7:35-7:55.


We do believe breakfast will speed up as time goes by....lots of kids not eating a bite so thinking they have already eaten at home.

Dismissal Update!

  1. Barnett will pick up van riders starting around 2:50
  2. Line up busses at 2:50...sea hall go to cafeteria and land hall line up in the foyer
  3. After busses have cleared halls, dismiss car riders

PreK Turn in Class Numbers to Ruth so she can write new tags when lost
