The Pine Glen PTO will be hosting a "Dough Raiser" at the Uno Chicago Grill in the Burlington Mall on Wednesday, December 7th and Thursday, December 8th.

Simply hand in your coupon for in-store or take-out on 12/7 or 12/8 and Uno Chicago Grill will donate 15-20% of Pine Glen friends and family sales back to Pine Glen School. The more we eat, the more we earn!

We will distribute the tickets/coupons the week of the "Dough- Raiser."

Please show your support for the school and come on down to Uno's.

Membership Perks

The School Directory and new school refrigerator magnet were sent out last Wednesday in your student's backpack.  Thank you to all the families and teachers who have become members.  Your support is instrumental to our success.  We are currently at 60% of our families and teacher/administrators at Pine Glen.

A big thank you to Julie Gosselin for putting together the Directory.  It takes a lot of time and coordination to create the directory for the PTO and we sincerely appreciate all her efforts.

It is never too late to join the PTO and receive the perks.  Dues are $20 per family.  There are membership envelops available in the front office, however any envelop will do.  Just be sure to put PTO Membership Coordinator on the front of the envelop and it will get to the right person.   Also, if paying in cash/check, be sure to include your name, your child's name and email address.  Checks should be payable to the Pine Glen PTO.

The Annual Pine Glen Halloween Dance was held last Saturday evening before the worst of the weekend storm hit our area.  We'd like thank all the families who joined us despite the weather forecast.  The Haunted House was installed again on the school stage and was haunted by Pine Glen fifth graders.  Refreshments were served in the cafetorium, while children danced in the gym to music provided by DJ Jack Ferren.  All in attendance seemed to have a wonderful time.

We would also like to thank everyone who volunteered for or made contributions to this event including:  parents, Pine Glen students, faculty, staff, middle and high school students, Roche Bros., NSK Inc., iParty, Target, Genevieve, Joanne Ryan, Jack Ferren, Carol McDonald Macri, Nancy and Bill Keddy, Monica Brown, Jill Giles and Maria Woods.   Thank-you all for being part of this special Pine Glen tradition.
