A MESSAGE FROM MR. COLE
Hello Pine Road Families!
The beginning of March is an exciting time here at Pine Road! Please be mindful that we will continue to utilize our outdoor spaces as much as possible. Be sure to send your children to school ready for whatever unpredictable March weather we are experiencing that day!
We look forward to seeing you all at Parent-Teacher conferences later this month. Please watch for communication from your child’s teacher for more information. Conferences are essential in supporting the home and school connection, and we look forward to your participation.
March is also Women’s History Month. The month celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture, and society and has been observed annually in March in the United States since 1987. This year’s theme is "Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories." Join us on the Community Connections page in recognizing this particular month! In addition, please join us on the 21st to recognize World Down Syndrome Day by participating in Rock your Socks Day!

While this tool is available to all district students and employees, use of the NameCoach tool is completely optional.
Supporting New Families at Pine Road
In our district, we are lucky to have students and families who are from diverse cultures. Did you know that in our district, we have over 30 languages spoken?
To better support our new families, we would like to invite you to participate in serving as a mentor. As a mentor, you would be responsible for explaining school routines and special events and answering any questions that arise.
For those families who do not speak English as their native language, working with a mentor family who speaks the same language could be very helpful in learning to navigate our school system.
If you are interested in volunteering your time, please complete THIS form. New families would contact you upon their arrival to the district.
Lunch menus are posted on a new interactive website, Nutrislice. Our innovative and interactive site and mobile app make our school menus more convenient and informative than ever before! Download the Nutrislice App from the App Store or get it on Google Play and search Lower Moreland.
Friendly reminder that the universal free lunch has ended, however starting October 1st free breakfast will be returning! Students that would like a free breakfast in the morning will walk straight to the cafeteria upon arrival. Students can eat breakfast in the cafeteria and granola bars, muffins, and cereal bars are also available if your student would like to save their breakfast for snack time.
Information on the Free or Reduced Lunch Prices can be found on the nutrition page on our LMTSD website.
