Big Box of Cards Fundraiser

The Big Box of Cards Fundraiser is wrapping up, and the School Council needs your help.  Parents/guardians who still have their child’s unsold Big Box of Cards are asked to return it to the school, or if interested, parents/guardians may purchase that Big Box of Cards and submit their payment to the school office.  Please do this by Wednesday, May 2, 2018.  A note is being sent home with select students with this same information shared here on the blog.  School Council would like to thank you for all of your support with making this fundraiser a big success!

Earth Week 2018

This Earth Week, Pine Grove students are looking for ways to make a positive impact on our environment. Here are a few ideas that you can do at home and school.

Pack yourself a meatless lunch this Monday to help save our planet! Need some plant-based protein ideas? Check out Oh She Glows for lots of school safe recipes that even meat lovers will gobble up.
