    Pines Lakes Family:

    I am excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year at Pines Lakes Elementary! I am overjoyed that all  of our students will be back on campus. As we begin our new school year, I look forward to working collaboratively with our students, staff, parents and our community to achieve our goals.  I encourage our parents to get involved and stay informed through our school’s website, newsletters, Parent Link messages as well as, by attending our monthly School Advisory Committee and School Advisory Forum meetings.  For the most updated information, please check out our school’s website. 

    There is so much to learn this year with our “Passport to Success” learning theme.  As always, our focus is the safety and overall welfare of all our stakeholders, therefore our faculty and staff are trained to follow protocols and procedures for ensuring our Panthers are well cared for.  “Pines Lakes Elementary is committed to providing a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognize and achieve their fullest potential”.  Our scholars will be successful as they are taught through 21st century learning skills.  Some of these skills include critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, problem-solving, ethics and accountability, all of which our students experience here at PLE.   

    For returning families, I look forward to seeing you all  and continuing to serve you, and our entire Pines Lakes community. For families new to Pines Lakes, I am excited to meet you and your child, please know that we are all here to support your child in transitioning to our amazing school. Our staff and school community are all committed to providing the best educational experience for your child at Pines Lakes regardless of the circumstance. I ask that you let us know how we can help! 

     If you haven’t done so already, please take the time to visit our school's website at
