  PGS Boosterthon Letter  

We are grateful for our Pine Grove School family!

Thank you for your support this year.



The PGS Spiritwear shop is back online! Check out two awesome new arrivals, a navy tie dye PGS sweatshirt and a pink tie dye PGS sweatshirt! These sweatshirts, along with more spiritwear, are available to purchase now in our online store:

The online store will be open through April! 

Delivery will be approximately 3 weeks from purchase

PGS installed and registered a Little Free Library last spring. It provides the community with an opportunity to share and receive free books. It’s been well received and used by PGS students and families. In order to keep our Little Free Library operating it needs more books to share. If your family or child enjoys getting books from the Little Free Library or you're just clearing out 

old books please consider sharing them with the PGS Little Free Library. If you have any questions please contact Renee Isaac at 

Thank you for supporting the PGS Little Free Library.


In the event school is delayed or cancelled tomorrow, Tuesday, February 28th, Christina Geist will read her children's book to our K-2nd graders on Friday, March 3rd.
