Global School Play Day!

Students at Pinewood enjoyed participating in Global School Play Day this week! Classes participated by allowing students to bring in their own toys, or have extra time with classroom toys and games! Teachers kicked off this awesome idea and special day by having play time at their staff meeting!

First Grade Coders!

Mrs. Palmer’s class got to learn coding from West Michigan Tech Talent! First they learned what coding is and then they practiced their direction following by building Lego sets. Finally, they got to create code to move Moana along multiple paths and go fishing! Each student got a pair of ear buds too! There is definitely a future coder in this class of kids! They will be coding our future technology for sure!



Mrs. Richey’s Rockstars finished up their “Super Reader” unit and celebrated with a parade, capes and Super Reader Pointer Sticks.  They worked very hard on all of their reading powers and Mrs. Richey is very proud of them.
