The Pine School has traditionally offered a Wish List to our families around the holiday time. This provides an opportunity for parents to directly affect instruction in the classrooms by purchasing items that a teacher, grade, or department has identified as important in the educational experience.
We have been fortunate to add superior educational tools through this manner. Last year we added ergonomic furniture to nearly every classroom in the lower school, which has been enthusiastically received and is utilized daily. In the upper school, we added tables and chairs which can be arranged into seminar seating for smaller classes and many rocking desk chairs for the students. Athletics added some important video equipment. All items on the Wish List were purchased by our generous families. As we have united all grades in Hobe Sound, the classrooms are beautiful and functioning at a new educational level.
This year we have decided to concentrate our efforts in a different direction. We encourage you to consider a gift in the name of a teacher to one of the multiple fundraising efforts that TPS has this year, whether it be the Annual Fund, the Auction, the Capital Campaign, or other opportunities that present themselves.
Please contact Mr. Kelly Hilton-Green in the Development Office of The Pine School to recognize a favorite teacher or to contribute to one of the fund-raising efforts of the school before the end of the calendar year.
