30th Birthday Bash - POSTPONED

Dear PGS Families,

PGS Community,

Parent Pick Up Change

Beginning Monday, May 2, 2022, PGS will move to having only one parent pick up wave at dismissal time. The gate will be opened at 3:20 pm (please do not arrive any earlier) and all students who are picked up by an adult will be dismissed at 3:25pm. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding. Lastly, we encourage you to take this opportunity to have your child give the bus a try. It could be a chance for them to learn a new routine in preparation for more independence next school year.

Pine Grove families!

On March 31st was one of the most anticipated days of the year...the 2022 Boosterthon Glow Run!!!! We are so excited to announce that our Fun Run Fundraiser was a HUGE, phenomenal success both in terms of fundraising and igniting our school spirit!! Watching all the students coming together to run their laps with enthusiasm and smiles reminds us that when we work together we can accomplish great things!

We want to thank you all for your generosity and support for both the PTO and PGS. This was the MOST successful Boosterthon Fun Run to date! We, as a school community, raised an incredible $40,000 to fund in class field trips, author visits, a gaga pit, and new playground equipment!! We couldn't have done this without your help in reaching out to family and friends for pledges!

THANK YOU ALL!!!
