The Lone Pine staff and our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) want to extend a warm welcome to our incoming kindergarten families in preparation for the start of their K-12 journey with the Bloomfield Hills Schools. 

One of the highlights of a typical spring at Lone Pine is our annual Kindergarten Round-Up/Orientation, which we had to cancel this year due to Covid-19. It's still very important to us to give our incoming kindergarten families a little glimpse of what to expect at Lone Pine, to help prepare for a successful transition to kindergarten. This includes "meeting" the staff, and learning a bit about the best ways to promote kindergarten readiness this summer.

We've created a kindergarten orientation video for families to watch with their children, which you can find here: This post will stay up all summer so our incoming kindergarten students can watch as often as they like to help prepare for their transition to Lone Pine. Enjoy!

This week Dr. Hillberry reads The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig. This is a powerful story about the importance of belonging, and is rich with teachable moments to discuss with young children. You can watch Dr. Hillberry's video by clicking here

The Invisible Boy was donated to the Lone Pine library as part of the West Bloomfield Public Library Star Reader program grant.

This is the last book in our Star Reader books video series. I hope our families have enjoyed these teacher read-alouds over the course of this school year. You can come back to them at any time on the Lone Pine webpage
