Classroom news Sept 15 - 19
The following is a letter from the Pinewoods Board of Directors and Staff:
Pinewoods is excited to have expanded our program offerings this year. We hope that many of you have had the opportunity to see the upper elementary classroom and the other upstairs rooms: the new computer lab, science lab, and music room.
This programming did come with an additional cost of $15,000. which is not covered by Pinewood's main source of revenue: tuition. We sincerely hope that each family will value the additional programming offered and consider making a donation.

Last week in class the UE students began to practice their presentation of the Big Bang Lesson. We will be presenting this lesson to the LE class and hopefully will have the chance to video their presentation.
We are working on our study of the three regions of NC: the coastal plains, the mountain region, and the Piedmont.
Field trip to the Don Lee Center
The elementary classrooms will be leaving campus on Thursday, September 18 at approximately 9 a.m. for a field trip to the Don Lee Center in Arapahoe, NC. This will be an overnight trip. We expect to be back on campus on Friday, September 19 between 5:30-6:30 p.m. I will text Lauren updates on our progress back to school. Please check text messages so that you will know what time to meet us on Friday at school.
On Thursday we will be stopping for lunch prior to our arrival at the Don Lee Center. Please pack a brown bagged lunch, drinks and a snack for Thursday.
Once we arrive at our destination, we will be spending most of the time outdoors, rain or shine. Please make sure that your child is packed for the weather conditions. It sounds like temperatures may be in the 70s so an extra layer may be required.
I have attached a copy of our trip schedule. We will be participating in an arts and crafts program. Your child must bring a plain white t-shirt for this program.
The Don Lee Center does have a camp store. It sounds like they sell snacks, drinks, and t-shirts. I do not plan on going to the store as a scheduled event, but I am mentioning it in case you want your daughter to be able to purchase a snack. Students will be responsible for handling any money they bring on the trip.
Questions? Thank you to Tony Walker and Chris Berge who have bravely volunteered to join us on the trip. ( It is possible that Lauren and Patty volunteered them!) Thank you to Cory Foy who will be providing our musical entertainment on Thursday evening.
