Pine Butte Elementary Mission Statement: Pine Butte Elementary School commits to working with parents and the community to educate and encourage students to excel while fostering responsibility, accountability and success.
Dear Parents, Students, and Families,
Welcome to the 2018—2019 school year at Pine Butte Elementary! We are excited to have the opportunity to work alongside our parents and community as we strive to provide an excellent educational experience for our students.
Educating each student is a team effort involving the student, parents, teachers, administration, and the community. Together as a group we must support the learning of each student. To this end, we must create a learning environment that fosters positive thinking, collaborative learning, and has high academic standards. Furthermore, we want our students to feel comfortable/confident enough to take risks (academically) by providing opportunities for them to work beyond their current level of understanding. Finally, it is imperative that the learning environment at PBES promotes, teaches, and reinforces strong moral character.
The success of our students hinges on effective communication and support between our families and our school. It is important that our students are engaged, on-task, and maintain appropriate respectful behavior while in school in order to preserve a healthy learning environment. It is vital that our parents reinforce appropriate behaviors and learning expectations with their children, not only in the classroom, but also outside of the school setting.
Our staff is looking forward to a successful school year. If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are eager to assist in any way we can.
