Principal's Message

Welcome to Pinewood Elementary School
Home of the Panthers!

Mrs. Steinke, PrincipalDear Families,

We are off to a wonderful and strong learning school year! This past school year was unprecedented, but our students, teachers and families all persevered to make it a great school year.

The vision of Orange County Public Schools is to ensure every student has a promising successful future. At Pinewood Elementary, we work to achieve this vision by providing high-quality instruction in a safe and joyful learning environment. Families are an important part of ensuring students have a successful future. Therefore, we encourage families to take an active role their child's education. Connect with us via Class Dojo to receive updates on school news and events. We welcome family input and would love for all families to be a part of our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and School Advisory Council (SAC).

To create an inclusive, family atmosphere at Pinewood, our school has implemented a House System. Every student and staff member is part of one of our six houses. Each House name and meaning is based on a character trait we want our Pinewood Scholars to exemplify: respectful, kind, determined, life-long learning, helpful, and joyful. We have six different houses, but one home. We are Pinewood proud!

This school year will be filled with lots of excitement, learning, and opportunities for enrichment. Stay tuned for our Welcome Back Newsletter with important Back-to-School information and news. Thank you for your continued partnership, and we look forward to a fantastic school year!
