Pine Road Grows Great Kids

January 16, 2020


Dear Pine Road Families,

Happy New Year! I hope that the winter break afforded you an opportunity to relax and spend time with those that you love. We are so pleased that our students are back with us at Pine Road and we are eager to make 2020 our best year yet!

A new year is a great time to reflect on what has occurred throughout the first part of the academic year and make some goals for that which remains. Now is as good of a time as any to talk with your child(ren) about some personal and academic goals for the balance of the school year.

Together, we can work to facilitate a community in which our children can thrive and move closer to reaching their fullest potential and accomplishing that which they dream.

On Monday, January 20th, there is no school. However, I hope that you will join us for our third annual MLK Day of Service Event. Information can be found HERE.

Don't forget to RSVP to one of the Pine Road VIP Events!

Please take a look at our Diversity Committee Newsletter.


Brian J. Swank, Ed.D.

News from the cafeteria

Breakfast and 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 then search Lower Moreland.

Food sold during the school day is required to meet nutrition standards and are referred to as Smart Snacks. Smart Snacks encourage students to make healthier snack choices to help give them the nutrition they need to grow and learn. Check out the 2019-2020 price list for the list of snacks we serve in the cafeteria.

Pine Road will have a special visitor on Thursday, January 23rd from Molly the Cow, The Nutrition Group's Mascot. During lunch, she will be sharing a "Moo-ving" message about the importance of calcium. We will also have special dairy treats including fruit smoothies!
