December Me to We

This December, Me to We will be supporting our local Food 4 Kids organization.  For many children, hunger is not just an occasional missed meal - it is a way of life. Food 4 Kids reduces barriers to accessing healthy food, which impacts immediate, short and long-term developmental outcomes for children and youth. 

Me to We would like to engage the Pineland community in providing food for our local children in Halton Region and Hamilton. There is a specific list (listed below) that Food 4 Kids have asked us to adhere to so they can best provide for the community.  They have requested that we donate snacks that are individually packaged so Food 4 Kids can divide them so families receive a better variety of snacks. We are asking that Pineland families provide a food that is specified by their child's Grade level try to provide variety in the children's diet.  If you would like more information about Food 4 Kids, please visit their website: 

We will begin collecting from Monday, December 4 until December Tuesday, December 19.

We continue to remind students to follow the Pineland Tech Agreement and Norms. Students are not to have their cell phones out in class, in the hallway or during breaks. Cell phones should be turned off and locked in a locker during the school day unless the teacher has asked the student to use it for a period for instructional purposes. Students are able to use the office phone when needed.
