Pine Cone Information

Pine Cone is a District-wide reading incentive program, in partnership with the West Bloomfield Township Public Library, for students in first and second grades.

Incentives for reaching each of the three levels of success: 

  • Silver (10 books)
  • Gold (20 books)
  • Emerald (30 books)

This program will run from December 7, 2018 through March 1, 2019. Students are encouraged to read as many of the books on the list as they can.


  • Due to varying reading abilities, the books may be read to, with, or by your child.
  • After each book is read, your child will complete a Reading Response sheet.
  • Each sheet is then signed by a parent and returned to his/her teacher for credit.
  • When your child receives credit for completing the form, he/she can check it off on their Pine Cone bookmark.

**As a special culminating event, all students will be invited to an assembly in March to meet one of the Pine Cone authors.
