Pinewood Pride Students connecting with Community Helpers

Thank you Ottawa County Sheriff Office Deputies and Grand Rapids Police Department Police Officers for taking some time to tell us what you do for your profession and allowing us to tour your vehicles and pet your k-9. 

On May 9th, some Pinewood students had the opportunity to meet and ask questions to a few of our local deputies and Grand Rapids police officers. Deputies shared what can be found in their cruisers and why stuffed animals can be found in their trunk. Grand Rapids SWAT member showed some of the tools that are used while on the job.  The K-9 officer explained to the students about the training that he and his k-9 partner had to go through before going out and serving the community. 

Each student had the opportunity to sit in a cruiser and to see all th equipment that is at a deputy/police officer’s right hand when in the driver’s seat. 

Thank you again for sharing your robots, cruiser, police dog and SWAT van with us.  Thank you for taking the time to share what you do each day on your job and answering a few questions.

CATS Celebration May 2016

Today Pinewood staff led by professional musician Dan Louisell put on an awesome CATS celebration.  Mr. Dan brought his keyboard and had the whole gym singing along with lots of favorite tunes.

Many staff members performed their own lip syncs.  It was a very fun afternoon.  The highlight was Mrs. Vig singing her own version of Adelle’s Hello, as she creatively shared her upcoming retirement.

Water, Seeds, Soil, Sun…Supper!

First graders enjoyed planting green bean, lettuce and spinach seeds! We plan to start them in our classrooms with tlc. Then they will be for sale at the community garden sale! Be sure to check Friday Folders in the near future for more information on how you can purchase these starters plants for your family to enjoy! IMG_0173.jpg
