Note from the PTO: Kindergarten Play Date

Kindergarten Play Date - Coming Soon

For all incoming Kindergarten students to Pine Glen:

Please join us at Pine Glen School on Saturday morning, September 10th at 10am for an informal play date before school starts in September.

It's a great opportunity for kids to meet new friends and feel comfortable at the school before school officially starts.  We will meet around the back of the school on the playground.

If you have any questions, please contact Catherine Gillespie at

We look forward to meeting all the new students.

Note from Principal and Kindergarten Staff : Kindergarten Orientation

August  2011

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am pleased to welcome you and your child to Pine Glen School.  The Pine Glen Kindergarten Staff is an experienced and talented group of professionals.  They include teachers/assistants, Mrs. Melissa Parnell/ Mrs. Karen Hoyt, Mrs. Elaine Babajtis/ Mrs. Stacey Gordon, and Mrs. Karen Potts/ Miss Melissa Hanafin.  The staff is eager to meet with you and your child, and has scheduled an orientation visit.  The K staff will meet with parents and incoming kindergartners on Thursday, September 8th from 8:45-10:00 a.m.

The purpose of this visit is to bridge the gap between home and school.  Your child will have a chance to come to school, meet the teachers, view the room, experiment with materials, and play with classmates.  You and your child will experience this together, making for a smooth transition.  Please be advised that you will be completing paper work while you are here for your visit.  Emergency contact phone numbers along with doctors/dentist contact information will be needed.

During your visit, the teachers will provide you with additional information.  They will also be able to answer questions about lunch, field trips, and bus procedures. 

The first regular school day for kindergarten is Monday, September 12th.

We hope you are enjoying your summer.  We look forward to seeing you in September. 


John Lyons
