Being a Cub Scout

This article was written as a requirement for a Cub Scouts project by Sam Warren who will be a 5th grade student this fall at Pine Grove School. 

Being a Cub Scout
by Sam Warren
Pine Grove Student

I have had a really fun time in the many years that I have been in Cub Scouts. I have done some really fun things.
     I've learned how to safely use a knife,earning my whittling chip.  I also got to go to a Harlem Globe Trotters game, it was so fun.  I got my basketball signed by the team. Another exciting thing I've done was meeting the Lowell Spinners. We ran out on the field with the players,  it was awesome!  I also got to visit a huge warship, the USS Salem. I never thought I would ever get to sleep on such a big ship! The funnest thing I got to do during my 4 years was Cub Scout camp at Lone Tree Scout Reservation!   We get to do archery, shoot targets with bb guns and lots of other fun things there.
    During my years as a Cub Scout I have learned in life you have to be trustworthy,  respectful, loyal and most of all,  to give back to your community. 
       I have had a really great time as a Cub Scout and hope I have even more fun as a Boy Scout.
                      

Thank you!



Thank you all for such a successful school year!

Thanks to the generosity of our local businesses,  support from our school and you, we were able to donate more than $40,000 to the Pine Grove School students and we will achieve this year’s goal of purchasing SmartBoards for the 4th grade classrooms. 

Every time you volunteer your time to committees and events you are contributing to your child’s education. Without our dedicated volunteers, none of our events could happen. If you gave countless hours or even 5 minutes, YOU made a difference in our children’s lives. We all are better off because you cared enough to donate your time and energy to Pine Grove School. 

Thank you all for your generosity.  Have a fun, safe and relaxing summer.  
We will look forward to seeing you all in the fall!

Thank You Kindly,


The Pine Grove School PTA
