I want to start this week’s post by thanking so many of our families and students for coming out to Pinewood last Wednesday and enjoying the Pinewood Playground Party. It was great to see so many of our students and staff and get a chance to connect with them during the summer.
I had the opportunity to see and talk to most of the students as I was passing out the ice cream and popsicles it was great to hear all of the different things students are doing this summer. Many students shared stories of bike riding, swimming, camping, and play outside all of the great things that make summer so much fun.
Students also shared with me the great books and stories they have been enjoying. Third grade student Dorothy shared with me she was enjoying a book series called the Warriors, it is all about a dynasty of cats. Sixth grade student Seth shared with me he had been reading a large variety of magazines and was also participating in a camp through the Humane Society. I was really impressed by the variety of different reading material the students were talking about. Some of the other popular suggestions were; Captain Underpants, Tween Tribune articles, National Geographic Animal books, I Survived book series, and many others.
Thank you to all of the families and students who take time to read the blog post each week, I appreciate your time and commitment to Pinewood.
