New Drop Off System

New parking lot system going in to effect.

1. The far right lane is for drop-off only, and you must pull all the way forward to drop off your child.

2. The first gate near the cafeteria will be closed.

Thank you for helping to keep our children safe.

donate pennies

Pine Hill Elementary School’s Penny Drive for Weed Elementary raised $1,303.61. WOW! In addition, many donations were brought in that filled up a UHaul truck! Thank you to our students who emptied their piggy banks, the parents who supported them and brought in donations, the teachers and staff at PH for donating supplies, gift cards, and money, retired teacher Linda Burghart for sewing 30 hats and donating a TON of household items, and Daman and Kim Mullins from American Auto Detail for donating $200. The staff at Pine Hill would like to thank everyone who participated. It warms our heart to know we have such caring people in our community. Weed Elementary will be very surprised and touched when we present them with our generous donations!

October is Bullying Prevention Month. 

To raise awareness and prevention of bullying, we are having an assembly this Thursday at 1:00.  “Quack and Wabbit” is a theatre performance aimed at providing students with strategies to encourage empathy and tolerance, improve communication skills, and learn about conflict management. The show is musical, humorous, and tender-hearted.

Cross Country Information

Pandas compete at the Arcata Marsh

Several students competed at the Arcata Marsh last Thursday, despite downpours, thunder, and hornets on the hunt.  We are very proud of our young runners.  They ran over a mile on a beautiful course.  Thank you to Mr. Haase and Mr. Springer for coming out in the rain to cheer them on.  Our next meet is THIS THURSDAY at Pacific Union School in Arcata.  Arrive by 3:30. The next meet is SATURDAY at CLAM BEACH.  Arrive by 10:30. 

Positive Behavior Interventions & Support


Great Job Mr. Haase's class for being safe, respectful and responsible on the school playground.

Important Announcements

  • We are closing the gate closest to the cafeteria.  Families will need to drive all the way forward and drop their child off so they enter at the main gate.  We hope this eases congestion, thus allowing for a safer parking lot.

Absences and Tardies

Please be sure your child attends school, each and every day.  We have 179 days to prepare your child for the next grade.  Every day is important.  Plan appointments for after school, or at least later in the day, if at all possible.  Make every effort to have him/her arrive at school on time. Being here on time sets the tone for the day.  Frequently, rich instruction takes place immediately after the bell rings. We don’t want your child to miss out!
