The teachers, coaches, and administration would like to thank all the parents and school community members that were able to donate several of the items needed for our new Science Curriculum experiments and labs.

Governor Rick Scott and First Lady Ann Scott have announced the 2018 Hispanic Heritage Month contests for students and educators. Florida K-12 students are invited to participate in the essay and art contests. Parents, students, teachers and principals are also invited to nominate full-time, outstanding educators for the Hispanic Heritage Month Excellence in Education Award.
The theme for this year’s essay and art contests is “A Celebration of Innovative Hispanic-American Leaders.” Students are asked to share how Hispanic Floridians have impacted our state’s history and culture. The deadline for submissions is October 15, 2018.
Earning one of these scholarships could transform the life of a student, giving them an opportunity to enhance their appreciation for Hispanic American history and prepare financially for their own future education aspirations. Please encourage the educators in your district to let students know about this wonderful opportunity.
More information about the contests and Florida’s Hispanic Heritage Month is available at www.FloridaHispanicHeritage.com.
Florida’s fourth annual Dads Take Your Child to School Day will be observed statewide on Wednesday, September 26, 2018. This initiative offers an opportunity to highlight the impact fathers and male role models have when taking an active role in a child’s education. Research shows when fathers are actively involved in their child’s education, students perform better academically, have fewer discipline problems and become more responsible adults.
Pinewood is very excited to host this event once again. More information will be coming home with you children soon.
Florida's School Public Accountability Reports have been generated to comply with federal legislation that requires annual report cards on the educational progress of schools, school districts, and the state. The School Public Accountability Report contains several types of data (indicators) designed to inform parents and the general public about the progress of Florida's public schools. This report meets public reporting requirements and provides certain additional information of interest on the status of Florida's schools.
