Ten Pembroke Pines Charter Middle School Central Campus Builders Club members and their parents volunteered to assist with therapeutic riding lessons with the Kiwanis Horses & Handicapped, Inc. in Davie, Florida on April 9, 2016. The students worked as side-walkers, horse leaders, and obstacle course assistants during therapeutic riding lessons for physically and/or mental challenged riders. After the lessons, the students bathed the horses and gave them a carrot treat. Ms. Piper Spencer, Builder's Club Sponsor is to be commended for promoting this very important annual service project with her students.

Kiwanis Horses & Handicapped was founded in 1979 as the premiere therapeutic riding program in South Florida. Over the years the program has grown and currently serves approximately 60 physically and/or mentally challenged riders in both Dade and Broward Counties.

Builders Club  is a student-led community service organization supported by Kiwanis International. 

Dear East or Central 5th Grade Parent/Guardians:
We are please to announce that we have begun the process of transitioning your child from elementary to middle school.  Your child is scheduled to enter the Pembroke Pines Charter Middle School (Central Campus) on August 22, 2016.  This is an exciting time for your child to begin to take on more responsibility and independence as they enter middle school.  However, many parents become nervous as this time approaches.  We hope to reassure you and alleviate your concerns when we meet on Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 6pm in the Central Campus Cafeteria, PARENT ONLY MEETING.

We will have multiple presentations and performances to showcase what to expect for your child as they enter middle school.  Our curriculum team of highly qualified educators will review the core and elective course available to your child.  Also, a sampling of our extracurricular program will be shared with you by our student performers.
