Come One; Come All to Pine Forest School of the Arts,
The Greatest School on Earth! As we begin a new school year, I would like to emphasize that student achievement is the primary focus of Pine Forest. It is our goal to create an environment for our students to succeed and achieve great success in both academics and the arts.
Our vision/mission at Pine Forest Elementary SOTA is to nurture the creative talents and aspirations of our students within an academic/arts program. In a structured multicultural environment, we provide a comprehensive and sequenced program of study in four arts disciplines – dance, drama, music, and art as well as academic instruction across the curriculum. Upon leaving Pine Forests Elementary our students will demonstrate defined skills that will enable them to be productive, self-directed, lifelong learners, who both appreciate and have a passion for the arts!
As a parent, you are a key part of your child’s success. We at Pine Forest rely on your support in all areas of the learning process in order for your child to truly exce. Our school is dedicated to the belief that each student will be provided opportunities to reach their full academic and artistic potential. In support of that belief, our staff is committed to doing the following:
- Have high expectations for all of our learners.
- Provide motivation for the learning process.
- Arrange opportunities for all learners to be successful.
- Provide a caring and positive class atmosphere for all students.
- Implement a rigorous core curriculum that includes the Grade Level Standards.
- Strive to be aware of the individual needs of your child.
- Communicate with you regularly regarding your child’s progress.
Communication between home and school is very important to the success of the school. I encourage each of you to remain active in your child’s education. Always keep the lines of communication open with the school and reinforce the skills and procedures introduced by the classroom teachers on a daily basis. I welcome your participation in the school improvement process through the School Advisory Council (SAC) and our Parent Teacher Association (PTA). We will continue to send home monthly newsletters and weekly emails and encourage you to regularly check this website for our many school activities and events. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
