     Welcome to Pinedale Elementary School!

    Pinedale Elementary School, a Title I school, is comprised of 25 classes serving students in grades one through six. We are fortunate to have a great staff providing instruction in English language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, music, gifted education, speech, special education, English as a second language, and library skills. In addition to the instructional staff, an assistant principal, fulltime registered nurse, guidance counselor, and instructional partner provide support services to our students. The office staff, custodians, and lunchroom staff help to complete our awesome group of adults caring for and teaching the students each day.

    Extracurricular activities include National Junior Beta Club, Junior Student 2 Student, Student Government Association, flag team, study buddies, running club, and Pinedale Pizzazz-our choir.

    Some of the many activities our students have enjoyed are: Liberty’s Legacy Super Citizens program, Grandparents’ Day, Parent Visitation Day, field trips, Accelerated Reader rewards, Red Ribbon Week activities, Breakfast with Heroes, musical performances, spelling bee, D.A.R.E. classes, Read Across America Week activities, dress up days, family picnic, family fun run, field day, awards day, and other events to extend learning.

    Pinedale has recently begun its journey as a Leader in Me school where students are taught 21st century leadership and life skills which create a culture of empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Our hope is that every child identifies their leadership skills and special talents while at our school where we expect----SUCCESS…NOTHING LESS!

    Pinedale Elementary is fully accredited by AdvancEd. All stakeholders work together to ensure that accreditation standards are met and that we continue to grow and keep abreast of current trends in education.

    We are fortunate to have a super group of volunteers who help make PES a better place. Parents, grandparents, and community members consistently offer their talents and time for the students of Pinedale. You are invited to join the fun!

    Pinedale is a great school with much to offer the students of our district. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to share the educational experience with your child. Please check out our Facebook page and our school web-site.
