Summer Reading Challenge Week 9 August 5, 2014

I have returned from China and am so happy to be back in America! It was a amazing experience one that I’m still working on processing and putting into words.
I’m still struggling with some jet lag and some how it is already August 4, 2014. Not sure where June and July went but I’m excited to get back to school and get ready for the 2014-2015 school year.
Today is election day I encourage all parents to please go vote and take your students with you. It is such a great learning experience for them and a true demonstration of our democratic process. Here is a link to all of the voting locations in Georgetown. Vote Today!!!!
We continue to improve our standing in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge we are now ranked 413 in the nation. Keep reading and keep logging, if for some reason you miss a week it is not a big deal to add your minutes to the next week. As long as you are keeping track however you put them into the Scholastic site is fine, we understand internet is not always available. Scholastic website.
With the start of August the back to school ads are everywhere. Here is an easy link to our school supply lists. If you have any questions on the school supply list or if you are having difficulties purchasing any of the items please contact me. Pinewood will make sure all students have the supplies that they need; so if you would like to donate any school supplies you are able to do drop them off at the Pinewood office after August 11, 2014, or if you are in need please email me or stop up and we will help get what you need.
