Our Mission

Pinewood Elementary School is a safe nurturing environment. We are responsible for our own learning and teaching others. We have high expectations, minds that think, hands that work, and hearts that love.

Our Vision

We envision Pinewood Elementary as a safe, secure environment conducive to learning where:

-Every student learns actively, accepts others, and achieves.
-Every staff member is a leader, an active learner, and a caring advocate for children.
-Every parent and the school community are invited, interested, and involved in the education of our students.
