Cranes
An ancient Japanese legend promises a wish (happiness/eternal good luck/long life/recovery from illness or injury) to anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes. Each of Ms. Gadt's students were responsible for 6 folded paper cranes (many, of course, did much more than 6). They wanted to share their "wish" with the school and brighten up the entrance of our campus.

    This past Saturday, Pine Tree High School hosted a VEX robotics meet. Pine Tree High school is only 1 of 2 schools in Region 7 to be a VEX Partner School and host robotic tournaments at this level. At a VEX robotics competition, students design and build custom robots out of metal, electric motors, wires, nuts, and bolts. The robots are both autonomous and driver-controlled. There is a 12 x 12-foot arena where robots compete at various tasks- this years' contest revolves around stacking blocks in towers up to 6 feet tall. Robots have to not only drive, but pick up blocks, expand to hold all the blocks, and then deposit the blocks. Because they are directly competing with 3 other robots in the same ring- there is an element of defense as well as offense. This is a tremendous learning experience in engineering, coding, and robotics. Pine Tree High School is very proud of their robotics students and the level of learning involved with this event. High school team members include: 
    • Aron Lopez
    • Caiden Wood
    • Jonathan Chiguila
    • Jayden Lanier
    • Raj Patel
    • Will Davis
    • Caleb Hogue
    • Colten Bryan
    • Micahel Orr
    • Cristian Vasquez
    • Micah Jackson
    • James Phu
    Aron, Caiden and Jonathan's team's made the quarter-finals of the event. The winning robotics team was B.G. Hudson Middle School of Garland ISD. 
     
    Pine Tree High school is also very proud of its robotics teachers, administration, staff and other students who participated as referees, coaches, scorekeepers, etc. at this event.
    • Robotics teachers: Samantha Sydloski, and Elizabeth White, High School Robotics, Todd Guest, Junior High Robotics and Jonathan Vaughn and Justin Linnstaedter, Middle School Robotics
    • Lee Branson, UIL Director
    • The entire Chandler Family 
    • Officer Kotulla
    • Vickie Childers
    • Out little Pirates: Kingston Kraus, Claire and Brooke Rutledge, Kalen Chandler, Silas and Tobias LaPrade
    LeTourneau University's mechanical engineering department also volunteered with 8 students to help judge. LeTourneau University also demonstrated "Badger"-  a robot created to chase geese away from golf courses. Dr. Kim of LETU spent the day helping students control "Badger" and learn about robotics at the college level. 
     
    We look forward to hosting another High School VEX tournament next fall and plan to expand our VEX robotics tournaments to the junior high and middle school level as well. 
  • Veterans Art Awards
    On November 11, Kilgore College hosted its annual Veterans Day Appreciation Celebration. Students K-12 submitted art about veterans and were awarded prizes. This year, two Pine Tree students tied for first place in the high school division- Jasmine Buffington and MacKenzie Newman with their photography entries.

     
    Students visited the  Historic Aviation Memorial Museum in Tyler as well as the Veterans Fly-In at Rusk Airport to take photos. The students then created a 

    photo-montage using the photos they took.

  • Connor B. Naseiro and Isabella N. Nix, students at Pine Tree High School, have been named recipients in the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP).

    In order to be eligible, students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic. Each year the NHRP identifies approximately 7,000[1] of the highest-scoring students from a nationwide total of 250,000[2] high school juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT and designated themselves as Hispanic, as well as approximately 200[3] of the top scoring PAA students from Puerto Rico. The nationwide selection also includes students from Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin IslandsGuam, and U.S. citizens attending international and APO schools.

    • Angelina Bynum, Pine Tree High School junior, won the gold medal at the Texas PTA Reflections Art Contest. Winners were recognized at the University of North Texas on August 3rd.  Angelina entered a photograph in the high school division and wrote an essay about how it relates to the theme of "Heroes Among Us." Angelina chose to honor her grandfather, a WWII veteran. Congratulations Angelina! We are so proud of you. 

      Her essay is below. 

      Heroes Among Us by Angelina Bynum

      The reason I took a photo of the soldier is because they gave their lives for us in WWII. My grandfather, Eldridge Bynum, fought in WWII and was stationed in the Philippines until his daughter, Carolyn Bynum, was 2. They also fought so that we may keep our freedom, this man served and is a symbol that these men care  about us. A hero is not someone that fights all the time, a hero is a person that is nice to somebody and helps them. If someone is having a bad day, they can be a hero by trying to cheer them up or standing up for them.

    • Texas Bank and Trust is pleased to announce the selection of seven seniors from Pine Tree High School to serve on its 2019-2020 Student Board of Directors.

            The TB&T Student Board is a prestigious program recognizing outstanding high school seniors in the community.

             Seniors Ainsley Daugbjerg, Ashly James, Mary Mitchell, Isabella Nix, Grace Roberts, Sophia Szczepanek, and Taylor Toliver will join with 60 other seniors from Christian Heritage Classical, Trinity School of Texas, Longview, Spring Hill, and St. Mary’s High Schools to make up the 42nd senior class to participate in the TB&T program in Longview.

             The 2019-2020 Student Board members will be introduced to the TB&T bank staff in an Orientation Reception, to be held at 7 pm, Monday, August 19, in the Main Bank lobby in downtown Longview. Parents and school administrators are invited to attend.

             The Student Board program will be designed to introduce students to banking and money management at a critical point in their lives, and provide them with the essential economic building blocks to earning, spending, saving, and investing money. The students will be challenged this year in an Olympic-inspired competition, entitled THE 411 FINANCIAL CHALLENGE.  This innovative TBT program will take the students through a series of head-to-head, high-spirited games to test their knowledge of budgeting, savings, investing, and professional development. Students will also serve as advisors to the bank on youth financial literacy programming throughout the year.

           Established in 1978, Student Board remains the bank’s first and most enduring financial literacy program. 

           Students were selected based on their grade point average, extra-curricular activities, and afterschool work activities. Students must submit an essay with their application as well as two letters of recommendation from either a faculty member or administrator to be considered for the program. Students accepted into the 2019 Student Board program were notified in late May. 

             Since its inception, the Student Board has introduced more than 2,400 high school seniors to banking and money management.

             For information on how to participate in the 2020-2021 Student Board program, students in their junior year of high school may contact Tammy Gage, Texas Bank and Trust Community Relations Officer, at (903) 237-1827.
