Dear Students, Come Read With Us

All students are invited to be part of the fun and join our school's Book Club. Each month, Book Club members will share their love of reading when they meet to engage in exciting book-related activities. There will be three different clubs based on grade level (K-1, 2-3 and 4-5).  Books will be provided, but must be returned before the next month's book can be given.

All your child needs to do to join is complete this application and return it to your teacher no later than Monday, December 14th.  Space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.  PLEASE be sure to include a parent's email address on your application so we can share all the details.  Our first Book Club is scheduled to meet January 2016. If you have any questions, please email Mrs.  Correa ([email protected])

Dear Parents,

Yearbook Cover Contest (Please see this flyer). Please turn in your entries along with this flyer by Thursday, December 10, 2015 to your teacher.  

We are looking for The Pembroke Pines Charter School FSU campus artist who can design a custom cover for our yearbook! Make a cover that shows how much you love PPCS.

Parents picking up their child in the pm car-line are requested to write the child’s name in dark marker on the car-line windshield hanger.  Please write the name so it is easy for staff and volunteers to see it from the car line.  If the name has faded or is written very small, please adjust it so it will help in the afternoon

Please write the child’s first and last name as well as the grade. This information clearly written on the car-line hanger makes things easier for staff in the carline.

Drivers are requested to circle a 2nd time in the carline if the child is not present (yet) when the car approaches the loading area. Leave the name in the windshield until the car is loaded as it is easier to direct the children to the car. An additional one can be obtained in the office if you need it

Please do not text while in our car line loading area.


Please review the Pembroke Pines Charter uniform policy as it relates to jackets.

Uniform Policy: All students must be in uniform each day. Navy blue bottoms, appropriate uniform shirt as well as uniform sweater and/or jacket. Solid navy blue jacket/sweater may be used.

Please remember to put your child’s name on all sweaters, jackets and sweatshirts.
