PTHS Winter Guard

The Pine Tree High School Winter Guard placed 5th in the Regional A Skill Class in a national competition held  Saturday in Allen, Texas.  This is the first year this accomplished group has competed. 


“El Dia del Niño” 

“El Dia del Niño” or “Day of the Child”, a celebration that originated in Mexico and dates back to 1925, is celebrated each year on April 30th. It is now Observed in many Latin American and other countries around the world. El Día del Niño is much more than a discovery and event of the 30th of April. This day is about recognizing the importance of children in society and promoting their well being. Beginning in 1996, several grass roots organizations, libraries, and universities worked together to link El Día del Niño with language and literacy as a way of supporting the well being of children. On April 30, 1997 this idea came to fruition and the first “Día del Niño/Día de los Libros was observed.
The goals and founding principles of this observance extend throughout the year and call for a daily commitment to:
Recognize and honor the importance of children and childhood;
Promote literacy and the importance of reading by linking children to books, languages, and culture in the home and at school;
Honor home languages and cultures by promoting bilingual and multilingual literacy in this multicultural nation, and global understanding thru reading and art;
Influence parents to become involved in the education of their children;
Encourage healthy eating habits for nourished bodies and healthy minds; and,
Show our children the value of character, community, and good citizenship.

    Texas Public Schools Week
  • During the week of "Snowpocalypse", two Pine Tree students competed in an oratory contest. Instead of hosting the event in person this year, Texas Eastman, sponsor of the 2nd annual Black History Essay and Oratorical Contest, held the event online, and students delivered their speeches through Microsoft Teams to a panel of judges. A few days later, Eastman shared the speeches on Facebook during their celebration of Black History Month and their African-American employees, and student winners of the contest were announced.  

    Junior Erin Brogan placed 2nd, winning a $1500 scholarship. Brogan honored Virginian native Bessie Blount Griffin, the inventor of the first feeding tube. Brogan was inspired to research Griffin because has a family member who uses a feeding tube, and Brogan admired Griffin's indomitable spirit. As a child, Griffin was told by her teacher that she was using the wrong hand to write. In defiance, griffin refused to write with her hands and instead learned to write with her toes. She later served as a wartime nurse, teaching soldiers to write without their hands. She also became a handwriting expert who worked with the Virginia Police Department.  

    Brogan has also won awards in UIL Ready Writing, Spelling, and math events.

    After placing 2nd last year in the inaugural contest, senior Kameron Benefield won the contest this year and a $2000 scholarship. He delivered a moving speech about the Father of the Blood Bank, Charles Drew, a black man who attended college on an athletic scholarship and became the first person to learn how to separate blood in order to provide blood transfusions. His discovery was widely used during the war, and the United Kingdom asked him to lead the development of blood transfusions for soldiers. Drew later decided to begin training young blacks to become leading surgeons after his blood was not allowed to be used for white soldiers. 

    Benefield won 2nd place in the Eastman contest last year, is a U.I.L. academic competitor, and earned academic all-state for football. He plans to attend Prairie View A&M in fall 2021 as an engineering major.

    Pine Tree High School Earns College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award

    Recognized for Closing the Gender Gap in AP Computer Science Principles

    Longview – Pine Tree High School has earned the College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science Principles. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have expanded girls’ access in AP Computer Science courses. 

    Out of the 20,000 institutions that offer AP courses, 1,119 achieved either 50% or higher female representation in one of the two AP computer science courses or a percentage of the female computer science examinees meeting or exceeding that of the school’s female population during the 2019-2020 school year. That’s nearly 37% more than the 818 schools recognized last year. In 2020, Pine Tree High School was one of 831 recognized in the category of AP Computer Science Principles, and one of 42 Texas schools recognized.

    “During an unprecedented year, Pine Tree High School female students have demonstrated perseverance and dedication in their study of AP Computer Science,” said the Texas Education Agency. “We could not be more proud of Pine Tree High School female students for staking their claim as the next generation of STEM and computer science professionals. We can’t wait to see their passion for next generation technology lead to lifelong success.”

    “Pine Tree High School’s students need the power to shape technology, not just cope with it,” says Stefanie Sanford, College Board chief of global policy and external relations. “Young women deserve an equal opportunity to become the next generation of entrepreneurs, engineers and tech leaders. Closing the gap in computer science education empowers young women to build the future they want.”

    The first year of AP Computer Science Principles in 2016-17 attracted more students than any other AP course debut, and participation is on the rise. In 2020, more than 116,000 students took the AP CSP Exam—more than double the number of exam takers in the course’s first year, and a 21% increase over the previous year. In 2020, 39,570 women took the AP CSP exam, nearly three times the number who tested in 2017.

    Providing female students with access to computer science courses is critical to ensuring gender parity in the industry’s high-paying jobs and to drive innovation, creativity, and representation. The median annual wage for computer and information technology occupations was $88,240 in May 2019. However, a code.org analysis of 2017 Bureau of Labor Statistics data finds women represent just 24% of the 5 million people in computing occupations. 

    That’s why new College Board research about AP CSP is so encouraging. According to the data, female students who take AP CSP in high school are more than 5 times as likely to major in computer science in college, compared to similar female students who did not take CSP. The study also finds AP CSP students are nearly twice as likely to enroll in AP CSA, and that for most students, AP CSP serves as a stepping-stone to other advanced AP STEM coursework.

    These findings make it all the more imperative that schools nationwide achieve gender parity in AP Computer Science classrooms. The 1,119 schools that receive this year’s AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award should serve as inspirations and models for all American high schools, where overall, female students remain under-represented in computer science classes, comprising just 34% of AP Computer Science Principles participants. So there is a long way to go to achieve equal gender representation in the field of computer science. Currently, less than half of the nation’s high schools teach foundational computer science, a clear opportunity to be addressed by strong partnerships between policymakers, the tech industry, and educators
