What an amazing summer, I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. As fun as summer was I can not wait to see all of our students smiling faces and start our best year ever!!! As a parent I always have hopes for my daughters for their school year, and as a principal I have those same hopes for every student at Pinewood. I hope that all of our students realize how much they matter and how special they each are. I hope when they walk into their classroom they feel loved and safe. I hope they have the opportunity to create something beautiful. I hope each of them has the chance to be generous and show kindness to other students and experience the feeling you get from that. I hope they come home from school excited about going the next day. I hope they learn that some of the most important lessons in school have nothing to do with academics and have everything to do with how to treat other human beings. I hope they feel awesome about what they can accomplish, and I hope they can say this was the best year ever. These are what I hope for my girls and for each of your children.
