Pinetree Community School Drive Through Trick-or-Treat
The Pinetree PTA is happy and excited to announce we're doing a Drive Thru Trick-or-Treat event in the Pinetree Community School parking lot on Thursday, October 29th from 3pm to 6pm. This is a FREE family fun event. Expect multiple stop stations full of candy, prizes and other goodies. Also, keep an eye out and count the Scarecrow Pioneer Pete's as you're driving through for a chance to win a fun prize at the end.

Some Info:
* This will follow through the valet line, please line up down Lotusgarden.
* For fun consider decorating you car. Decorated cars will be featured in the yearbook
* We'll also be snapping pics of our dressed up kiddos for the yearbook.
* All Pioneers and their family members must stay in the car and wear masks.

We're also having a coloring contest. Print out (or you can pick up a printed version in the school office) the pumpkin linked below and have your student color it the way they want. Please bring and turn in your completed pumpkin coloring to the first station at the drive through. Winners will be announced at a later date and one Pioneer in each grade will win a Pinetree Spiritwear Bundle! Please make sure to put your Pioneer's name, teacher, grade and parent contact info (cell or email) on the back of the paper so we can reach you.

Lastly, we're looking for additional candy donations to help make this an amazing event. If you would like to donate a bag of candy (or two), there will be a box in the School Office to drop your donations. Please donate by October 27th.

We can't wait to see our Pioneers dressed up in their Halloween best.

Amazon Smile
Since you're buying things already, why not help support your school at the same time? One of the easiest ways to support your school is to do what you would already do anyway!  Please consider using Amazon Smile to support Pinetree Community School while making that purchase.  We greatly appreciate it.

AmazonSmile and Amazon will donate a percentage of every purchase to Pinetree PTA. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service. Instead of going directly to the url when shopping, book mark and choose one time that you want to support "Pinetree Community School PTA" and everytime you shop through that link going forward, you're supporting your child's school.  It's as easy as that!

Also, Good news! AmazonSmile is now available in the Amazon Shopping App to all AmazonSmile customers using supported Android devices or Apple IOS devices.  Just search AmazonSmile in the item search field for instructions on how to add AmazonSmile to your app.
We've had two scheduled pickup dates, but we know not all of you have received your yearbooks.  If you have not yet received yours, please check your email (junk mailbox included!) or send an email to to make arrangements to get yours.
Box Tops to Support Pinetree PTA
Yet another way you can support the Pinetree PTA is by continuing to scan your store receipts on the official box tops app and contributing them to Pinetree Community School.  We greatly appreciate your support.

There are some BIG changes happening to one of the easiest ways to raise money for Pinetree School. For every Box Top that is turned in, Pinetree earns 10 cents. Last year, we have collected nearly $1,000 for our students. However, how you collect Box Tops has changed this yearit has gone digital!
Box Tops is slowly transitioning to no longer printing Box Tops on the packaging of products, that is why it is so important to download the app and start scanning. However, until then, please keep clipping and sending any Box Tops that you may find. We will be earning money for Pinetree both ways.  We suggest anytime you go food shopping, go ahead and scan that receipt in the app.  The app will look at each of the items and do the work for you to see if any of the items qualify for a box top and automatically contribute it to Pinetree.  Please note you have to scan the receipt within 14 days of the purchase.

Check out the video below for more information on this change:
See how easy it is to earn for your school with the NEW Box Tops App! Watch this how-to video to for a simple, step-by-step explanation of how it works—then give it a try yourself.

Spirit Bundles are Back!
The Pinetree PTA is happy to bring back Pinetree Spirit Bundles as an easy way you can help donate to the Pinetree PTA.  In return for your donation, you’ll receive great goodies and recognition.  We have multiple donation tiers to choose from, you can donate on behalf of your family or business name and one of the best parts - your donation is tax deductible.  This will help get Pinetree PTA on a great fundraising head start and depending on the tier, you will be able to get everything Pinetree PTA has to offer throughout the school year.  Pinetree PTA fundraising provides complete funding for our enrichment classes including art and music instruction, as well as supporting classroom needs, field trips and school wide improvements.
