Bears' Blog November 22

The Bears’ Blog…

This week is designated as National Bullying Awareness Week and there have been many activities happening here @PNE to support this initiative. This week, and every week, our focus is on kindness because we know an important tool in preventing bullying is through creating a culture of respect, compassion, understanding, and caring.  Every member of the Pine Street family strives to demonstrate this daily. Classes will be discussing kindness quotes and participating in creating hallway displays that identify personal traits that support our Pine Street culture of kindness.  One example of this is the generosity of our Pine Street families and the Christmas Bureau donations that have been coming in this week.  Thank you for supporting this meaningful cause!

Check your students agendas for information on our Christmas Concert Raffle!

Enjoy your weekend!
