Pine Tree Birch Elementary Announces Genius Hour Program

Birch Elementary in Pine Tree ISD is hosting a NEW program designed to help students find hobbies and activities that interest them.  This program will be called Genius Hour and it will be held at Birch Elementary on the following dates and times: October 19th, January 18th, March 29th, and May 24th/2 sessions per day between 12:30-3:00.  One of the campus goals for the 2018-2019 school year is to teach Birch students the importance of relationships, and we would love for you to take part in helping our students reach their highest potential.

If you have a hobby, talent, or career-related activity that you can provide a hands-on learning experience for a small group of students, please consider participating in Genius Hour.  These hands-on learning experiences can include knitting, sewing, cooking, athletic activities, art, board games, and anything else that you would like to share with our students.  The district asks that you bring the materials needed to conduct your activity with the small group.  It is also vital that you commit to attending all four days as these students will look forward to seeing you each time.  

Please contact Vanessa Reneau at vreneau@ptisd.org if you would like to contribute to Genius Hour.  All volunteers must complete the online volunteer form and background check located at: http://www.ptisd.org/page/Community.Volunteer.
