Pine Bush Elementary Handbook

Welcome to our Learning Community at Pine Bush Elementary School. Our staff members are looking forward to an exciting and productive school year as we work together with you and your child. As parents, your support of the learning process will be a vital factor toward ensuring your child’s success in school.

At Pine Bush Elementary, we are committed to sustaining a culture of life long learning which involves students, staff and parents. We believe that this culture must:

Provide a safe learning environment for children to expand their knowledge, take risks, develop productive work habits and grow;
Foster imagination, creativity and critical thinking;
Promote respect, responsibility and compassion for others; and
Provide opportunities for academic exploration, challenge and productive collaboration.

The purpose of this handbook is to provide you and your child with an overview of some basic procedural information concerning our school. It is also intended to make you aware of the academic and behavior expectations that we have established for our students. We hope that you will take the time to read and discuss the contents of this handbook with your child. Please feel free to contact the school at any time should you have questions or concerns.
