PLE 6th Grade Families,
Parent Informational Night for PLUM (Pine Lane Up in the Mountains)
Wednesday, February 7th
6pm - 7pm - North Campus Gym
Please join us as we share the complete details regarding your students PLUM experience. This is a 3 day 2 night trip to our DCSD Stone Canyon Outdoor Edventure Camp in Larkspur CO that your students will participate in the week of May 6th.
You may find additional information and details on our PLE PLUM Website.
PLUM is an annual tradition at Pine Lane for 6th grade students and their teachers. Its purpose is threefold. First, it reinforces environmental science units taught at Pine Lane by supplementing the Geology and Environmental Science standards which we teach in the Douglas County Schools. Second, it provides students with the opportunity to learn “life” skills such as the confidence to meet new challenges and living more independently. Third, the time together with their classmates and teachers develops trust and cooperation which, in turn, builds a stronger “community of learners” when everyone returns to Pine Lane.
Please reach out to your students 6th Grade Teachers if you have any questions. 

ATTENTION: 6th grade parents - It’s your Yearbook Crew!

Fundraising Opportunities 

If there are any parents that would like to organize any other  fundraising ideas other than what we have below please reach out to your students' teacher.

Pies Sweet Snackin - October 12th - October 25th

In order to help with the cost associated with PLUM, your students will be bringing home a holiday treat fundraiser on Thursday October 12th.   Your student will earn 30-40% of all their sales. 40% if the total number of combined items of all students sold are greater than 200. 30% if the total number of combined items of all students sold are less than 200. This will be applied directly to their PLUM payment in My School Bucks in January.   

 I am looking for a few volunteers to help on the Delivery Date on Thursday November 15th at 1:00pm.    If you would like to help, please email Vickie @ [email protected].

All information on Fundraising is available here:  PLUM Fundraising


King Soopers Card  
PLE utilizes the King Soopers Card profits to give all students  attending PLUM a scholoarship.  In the past it's been around $50.00.  The actual scholarship will be determined the beginning of March when we recieve our 1st quarter earnings. 

If you shop at King Soopers, think about selecting Pine Lane Elementary to earn your community rewards.  PLE receives a percentage of your purchases.

Please reach out to your student’s teacher for any questions you may have regarding this trip.

Thank you,
