PTHS Highlights

  • State UIL

    On Friday, May 1st, Pine Tree UIL competitor Rebecca Teixiera Leeson was awarded a 5th place state medal for her essay entry in the Barbara Jordan Essay Contest. The Barbara Jordan Historical Essay Competition was founded in 1995 as an event sponsored by the University of Texas at Austin. The competition provides students an opportunity to explore the contributions of African Americans to Texas history, as well as honoring the legacy of its namesake, Barbara Jordan. The theme of the competition is "African Americans in Texas: Past and Present." Fine Arts Director Lee Branson said, "We are proud of Rebecca. It is a disappointment that she will not be able to attend the state meet and be awarded her medal there because the event was cancelled, but she is still a state winner."

    Other UIL events were cancelled this year for high school students including the district, regional, and state contests. The district meet, which students have worked hard to compete in all year, was cancelled a week before it was scheduled to take place. UIL students invest many hours outside of the school day and on Saturdays to travel and compete in practice events gearing up to the district academic event. Students interested in competing are encouraged to contact Lee Branson or any of the coaches. The coaches are as follows:

    Deborah Wait and Jennifer Cartwright: Number, Sense, Calculator, General Math
    Blake Sansom: Science
    Karen Ritch: Accounting
    Patrick Jones: Computer Applications and Computer Science
    Sam Sydloski and Elizabeth White: Robotics
    Ryan Stokes: Speech and Debate
    Caity Rutledge and Chris Yoder: Film
    Lisa Wright: Theatrical Design, Prose, and Poetry
    Guy Kelly: Social Studies
    Collin Robertson: Current Events
    Greg Collins: Journalism
    Keri McBride: Literary Criticism
    Melissa Wright: Latinx History Essay Contest
    Terri Davis: Spelling, Ready Writing, Barbara Jordan Historical Essay Contest

    State Medal

    Students Advancing to VASE State

    Like so many UIL and other student events that are canceled ours is as well. The silver lining with this competition is that the artwork will be judged for state medals remotely. There are 11 of our talented art and photo students that advanced and we are so proud of them! We are looking forward to hearing from the state judges in April!

    Robotics Competition

     

    Region 7 held the 2020 Spring Lego High School Robotics Competition at the service center in Kilgore, March 2nd and Pine Tree HS robotics students place both 1st for the design challenge and 1st for programming/building challenge. Ira Roberts and James Phu designed a robotics contest based around getting into college, Choosing a Captivating College to Commence a Comprehensive Career Path.  This is Ira's 2nd year to win 1st place in the design competition. Their design board looked like a college campus and robots were challenged to complete tasks such as moving suitcases into college dorms, move through college gates, or press levers for attendance at different classes. Robots even had to spin levers to determine SAT/ACT scores and pull out a very long piece of paper to symbolize filling out the FASFA form. Ira and James' design was professionally replicated for all 52 teams to compete on.

    Pine Tree students also placed 1st and 4th with building a robot and programming it to complete the tasks.

      Pine Tree Juniors Holly James and Kameron Benefield competed Tuesday, February 11th in the Black History Oratorical contest sponsored by Texas Eastman, winning first and second places respectively.  Students from Longview area schools submitted research papers in December, and four were selected to advance. Those four students delivered memorized orations about the person they researched in front of an audience at Texas Eastman.  Scores from the researched essay and the oratorical scores were then combined, and 1st - 4th places were recognized.  Both students will deliver their speeches at the February 29th community-wide event "City of Longview and Eastman Black History Month Public Program" taking place at Belcher auditorium. The event celebrating Black History Month and honoring the contributions of African-Americans is co-hosted by the City of Longview and Texas Eastman.

      This is a new record for PTHS Choir! Congratulations, PT Pirates.
    • Pine Tree HS Band students competed in the UIL Region IV Band Solo & Ensemble contest Friday and Saturday, February 7-8. The contest was held at Pine Tree High School with 22 schools participating.

       

      Pine Tree finished with 84 Class 1 Superior rating medals and 5 Class 2 Superior rating medals, which is more than any other school in the region. 

       

      Aaron Turner, Director of Bands, says, "This phase of competition for band students is critical to their growth and development as  players.  Unlike competitions where the entire band performs together, each student involved in Solo and Ensemble must practice on their own before  and after school and learn to play soloistically with live piano accompaniment, or play as a critical part of a small ensemble.  This not only benefits the individual, but ultimately makes for better bands.  I could not be more proud of the work our kids and our staff did in order to be prepared for this event."

      The camp, sponsored by Rotary International, focuses on building 8 core leadership traits in the students who attend from across Northeast Texas and Southeast Oklahoma.  Students had to submit an application and go through an interview process to be selected.  Hosted at Clements Scout Ranch, in Athens, TX, RYLA is filled with activities from sunrise to well past sunset. Students work within teams to complete a variety of challenges that push them to think outside the box, stretch their imaginations, grow as individuals and a team, and recognize their own leadership abilities.


      Congratulations to Adrian Benavidez-Gomez, Jaiden Chism, Carson Rhodes and Ethan Waycott!

      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

      • 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

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

      National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) was initiated in 1983, by the College Board, to identify outstanding Hispanic high school students and to share information about these academically well-prepared students with subscribing colleges and universities.

      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.

             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.
