Dear Pinevale Family,
I am excited to be starting my 7th year as Principal of Pinevale Elementary School. This year's theme at Pinevale Elementary School is, "ONE TEAM, ONE DREAM". I am thrilled at the opportunity to continue building relationships with students, parents, and families that make up our wonderful community. It continues to be an honor to be part of a faculty and staff committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment. Together we will continue building on the tradition of academic excellence at Pinevale Elementary School.
I believe the partnership between individual families and our school is an important part of our success. Students benefit as parents and guardians are involved in their learning. It is our goal to have constant and consistent communication between home and school with regular opportunities for families to learn about what is happening at school.
I am passionate about student learning and helping every child become a life-long learner. I believe that our school is a safe place where all children have opportunities to learn and grow. It is my passion to collaborate with students, parents, and teachers to help our students achieve their absolute best.
Please take time to go through this handbook with your child so that both of you are aware of our school expectations. Knowledge, communication, and understanding are the foundations for a successful and well-informed year.
Always feel free to contact our school if you have any questions or concerns. Pinevale’s goal in working with our parents and students is to foster a relationship built upon trust and cooperation to provide and communicate what’s best for our students. Our commitment to education and your support will result in great success as we continue to hold high expectations for all students.
I strongly encourage you to join our P.T.O., Parent Advisory Committee, participate in school activities, and visit our school often. Joining P.T.O. and participating in school activities doesn’t only lead to preparing children, it also equips the parents to be a partner in preparing for their child’s success.
