Welcome To Pine Hill School

Dear Families,

As many of you are aware, the City of Weed suffered a huge loss when a fire swept through the town, leaving 150 families homeless.  Most of these families have school-aged children.  They have nothing left.  This happened at the school where our principal worked at last year.  It is a wonderful community of special people.

Pine Hill Elementary would like to show we care by collecting pennies and/or donations.  Bring your pennies to your teacher or the office by next Friday, Sept. 26th.  If you are sending donations, the items in need include school supplies, jackets, toys, toiletries, blankets, etc. The winter is approaching and it gets very cold there.   The closest stores are Ray’s and Walmart, so gift cards are also a good idea.

We will send around a poster for each student and staff member to sign their name. Thank you for showing Weed Elementary School how much we care.

7 Simple Tips to Help Your Child Read

From: momadvice.com

  1. Make reading time a regular activity at a specific time each day.
  2. Change how you read together.  It doesn’t always have to be child reading to parent.  Read to them.  Take turns.  Read together.
  3. Pause, prompt, and praise. Don’t say the word right away if   they are stuck.
  4. Not every single word has to be correct.
  5. Talk about what you are reading!
  6. Be seen as a reader.
  7. Make it fun!

Absences and Tardies

Please be sure your child attends school, each and every day.  We have 179 days to prepare your child for the next grade.  Every day is important.  Plan appointments for after school, or at least later in the day, if at all possible.  Make every effort to have him/her arrive at school on time. Being here on time sets the tone for the day.  Frequently, rich instruction takes place immediately after the bell rings. We don’t want your child to miss out!
