Welcome to Pinewood Elementary Home of the Panthers!  

As Pinewood Panthers we take PRIDE in our School  -  PRIDE in our Students  -  PRIDE in our Communities.  We believe in providing developmentally appropriate learning for all of our students and appreciate the teamwork and involvement with our families as we work together as a team for each individual student.  As a small neighborhood school we are made up of amazing families and caring staff members that work together to build strong relationships.

What's the best part about being the Principal?

Wow there are so many things I love about being a principal! One of the best parts is to greet the kids everyday with a smile as they walk in the building.  Seeing them excited to come to school is what makes my morning – so much so I don’t even need coffee to start my day!
