Welcome To Pine Hill School

Dear Families,

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!  Teachers, staff, and administrators have been busy preparing for an exciting, challenging, enriching year!  It is our commitment to give your child the best education possible in a safe, nurturing, and positive environment.

We will continue to implement our Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS). Students showing safe, respectful, and responsible behavior will earn Panda Paws, be awarded with exciting assemblies, and ultimately be proud they exhibit appropriate behavior in and around school, and beyond!

Did You Miss Back-To-School Night?

If you were unable to attend our annual Back-To-School Night on Thursday, August 28 you can view the presentation given by some of the teachers online. We will post links as we receive them from the staff.

You can view the kindergarten presentation with slides you can read at your own pace here.

You can watch the kindergarten presentation as a movie on our YouTube channel here.

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!
