Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!
I'd like to welcome all of our new and returning families to Pine Ridge Elementary School. We are very excited to spend the 2015-2016 school year with you and your children. Our mission at Pine Ridge is to "Support each other to achieve our potential in a positive, safe, learning community".
At Pine Ridge, we take community building quite seriously. We work hard to make everyone aware of our practices and hope to include you in many aspects of your child's educational experience. Whether your student is returning or new to Pine Ridge, we spent the first week building our school community. Our staff works together to teach and reinforce rules and expectations using Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports, as we are a PBIS school. We have three simple school wide rules; Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. You will see signs posted throughout the school along with examples of the appropriate behavior.
Soon our staff and site council will be reviewing our academic performance data, along with other measures of students success to determine three school wide goals. These goals will provide us with our focus for our grade level team work and school-wide professional improvement efforts. When this process is complete we will share our goals with our Pine Ridge community.
I look forward to the great things to come in 2015-2016 school year.
