Parents are needed to volunteer for Career Day!

The Pembroke Pines – Florida State University Charter Elementary School would like to invite you to our Annual Career Day on Wednesday, October 8,2014 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. to share your profession with our bright young minds. We believe in exposing our students to all of the different careers that are out there for our students. Children live by example and what an awesome opportunity for you to open our students’ minds at this young age by explaining your profession to them. Help our school to make a difference by volunteering for this important, yet fun event.

Each presentation is 30 minutes and you would participate in 5 sessions. You will be placed in a particular age appropriate grade. We have 21 slots available for our volunteers. If you are interested please email Luz Wittyngham at [email protected]

She will contact you to confirm your slot and grade level.

Thank you in advance for your constant support and dedication in making our school a success.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Today our school participated in a code red lockdown drill. We often practice these drills so that our students would understand the procedures.

Two days a week we do a timed mathematical activity school-wide at 8:45am. We are now starting “Fact Friday" & "Acaletics Wednesday." These activities are 6 minutes long.

We do not want the children missing these programs. Please assist us by having your child punctually attend school in the morning.​ The carline gets very backed up when a high volume of cars arrive in line at 8:35 a.m.​ ​ If possible, please assist us by trying to arrive a few minutes earlier so your child is present for the “Fact Friday" & "Acaletics Wednesday” activity.​

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As a reminder, we now have a bus that comes into our bus loop at 7:50am. The bus loop is now closed at that time. Please make arrangements to park elsewhere during the time that the bus loop is in operation. Thank you.

Please join us for a Back to School Dress Down Day on Thursday, August 28, 2014!

$1.00 - Wear a green or red shirt
$1.00 - Wear BLUE jeans, shorts, skirt

We encourage all students to participate. The funds raised help many school-wide activities and benefits everyone…..

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this flyer about the Support Our Schools Dress Down Day on September 17. Mark your calendars!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this flyer about the Support Our Schools meeting on September 9, 2014 at the Central Campus.

Dear Parents using the car line,

Our morning associates and volunteers are posted in our car line. If your child can open and close the car door on their own, we encourage them to do so as this speeds things up. If your child needs assistance (in the am) opening and closing the car door; we will assist. (Or if your car door is child-proofed) ----If this is the case, please place the “Assistance Needed” sign in your car windshield so staff knows to assist your car. You can obtain this sign from the office. (It is also attached to this e mail.


Our car line is very improved, yet additional assistance with the morning and afternoon car line would make things even faster. Earn service hours! Volunteers are always welcome and truly appreciated! If you are interested, you may stop by the front office any day. We would love to have you!


Please be aware that safety will always be our main concern. On rainy days with lightning strikes during dismissal in the immediate area of the school we may need to alter our dismissal. Sometimes we are forced to suspend car line dismissal until it is safe. If the lightning looks like it will quickly pass we will hold the dismissal for 10-15 minutes. If the lightning storm is constant we will move all car riders into the cafeteria on the south side of the school, allowing children and staff to remain indoors out of harm’s way.

The lightning day procedure for dismissal would then be for the entire carline to remain in line and to proceed (drive) to the front (South) of the school. This would allow staff safe shelter. We would then load the cars on the south side of the school in front of the main office.  In the most extreme situation of lightning, children would only be dismissed if the parent were to walk into the office to pick up the child. We ask that you please be patient on these lightning and rainy days.
