  • Congratulations to the Pine Tree Mock Trial Team. The team took third place in district competition Saturday at the Smith County Courthouse, missing out on the finals and a trip to regionals by four points. 

    Team members include Ashly James, Brie Cope, Rose LaBay, Caleb Terry, Robert Ray, Grace Roberts, Ainsley Daugbjerg, Leah Counts and Luke Oxsheer. This was the first year for the group to compete, and they were aided in their efforts by Gregg County Assistant District Attorney Dave Hagan, who began working with the group in December.

  •  Twenty-one students at Pine Tree High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams.
    The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams.
    The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.

    Pine Tree High School:

              One student qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.  This student is Shawn Naseiro.
                           One student qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.  This student is Akshay Peddireddy.

                         Nineteen students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher.  The AP Scholars are Jack Cheng, Natalie Collins, Korbin Davis, Jack Eaton, Samuel Gonzalez, Ashly James, Josue Jovel, Jackson Lair, Dariann Munguia, Madison Pike, Evelyne Ramirez, Kalie Rhodes, David Ritch, Wade Seidel, Shelby Smith, Riley Stanley, Caleb Terry, Logan Valenza, and Madison White.  These students have at least one more year in which to complete college-level work and possibly earn a higher-level AP Scholar Award. 

              Pine Tree High School offers 19 AP courses in which students are provided the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admission process.  In three of these 19 courses, Pine Tree students performed above the state average, national, and global averages in Calculus, Studio Art Drawing and Studio Art 2D Design.

  • Brandy Gonzalez, 10th grade, at Pine Tree High School received 1st place for  her digital photo titled "Krystal Refractions in the 2019 Congressional Art Competition.  Brandy's photo will represent the 1st District of Texas with Congressman Louie Gohmert at the US Capitol in Washington D.C. for a year long art exhibition. The exhibit opening is in June, and Brandy won 3 plane tickets complements of the Congressional Art Competition/Southwest Airlines/Louie Gohmert to attend the art opening with her parents. Judges were faculty members at East Texas Baptist University. High school students from all over East Texas competed. 
    We are so proud of Brandy's hard work, creativity, originality, and that Pine Tree High will be represented at our Nation's Capitol. To create this image, Brandy designed a stencil, cut it out with an x-acto knife, projected the shadow's onto her model's face, took a photo, then manipulated that photo with various software. Her model's name is Krystal, and the colors are vivid like a crystal refraction- hence the title. 

    The Congressional Art Competition began in 1982 to provide an opportunity for members of Congress to encourage and recognize the artistic talents of their young constituents. Since then, over 650,000 high school students have been involved with the nationwide competition.

    • The Pine Tree marching band, under the direction of Aaron Turner, earned a 1st Division Superior rating at the UIL Marching Contest Tuesday, October 16, 2018 in Sulphur Springs. 
      The weather brought all kinds of challenges to this year's contest, forcing a last-minute move from the usual contest site in Mt. Pleasant to the Sulphur Springs indoor practice facility.  The contest day was very rainy, forcing the students to get wet getting off the buses, traveling to warm-up, traveling to the performance arena, and then again when loading the buses.  

      Despite the challenges, the Pine Tree kids rose to the occasion and gave a superior performance.  This shows our students' tenacity, drive, and flexibility when faced with adverse conditions.  Way to go Pirates!
