Introduction

Welcome to Pine Street School! Our students, staff and families continue to demonstrate "A Tradition of Pride and Excellence" in supporting a vibrant learning community so as to assist students to achieve academic, social and behavioral growth. Research clearly indicates that student success and parent-school partnerships are directly related.

The Pine Street community believes in a diversity of growth opportunities for each and every child through active, daily involvement in learning, both in the home and school.

Students also benefit from the gifts and talents of community volunteers who share their expertise to enrich the learning environment. Our staff and families demonstrate character, competence and compatibility in fostering the relationships that make learning possible and translate to success for students.

Mission

Our safe and caring school community is built upon meaningful relationships and is committed to providing quality learning opportunities for students to achieve academic excellence as self-directed, life-long learners and responsible world citizens.

Philosophy

We will act in a manner that models respect and responsibility and recognizes the inherent dignity and worth of all individuals. We will work to create confident, caring children through meaningful relationships that are founded upon a belief in empowerment and trust. We will utilize a variety of teaching strategies to enable all children to strive for personal excellence. We will work together as a professional learning community that builds upon a tradition of "best practices" so that all students can achieve high standards academically, socially and behaviorally. We will deal with students in a manner that promotes creative and critical thinking skills. We will share and celebrate student, staff and community accomplishments with pride. We will welcome students, parents and partners as active members of our learning community.

Beliefs

The family is a child's first and most influential teacher. The school works collaboratively with the home to support the growth of the whole child. All children can learn and experience success. Student's primary responsibility is for their own learning and respectful behavior. Children learn from peers, adults and members of the greater community. Knowledge, skills and attitudes are taught in relevant and meaningful ways.
