FSU Elementary News and Notes

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.

Proactive Discipline Plan:

Dear Charter School Parents,

As one of the nation’s largest charities, the United Way of America understands the impact that charitable giving has on improving communities and helping individuals.  Education is just one of the United Way’s top priorities when advocating for good public policy and their team of volunteers work vigilantly every day to ensure that every child has a quality education.

We wanted to remind you that donating through the United Way is yet another fantastic option parents have to contribute through partnering with their participating employers towards their SOS Parent Donation.  Please check with your employers to see if this is an option for you and remember to tell your employer that you would like your donation to go to the Pembroke Pines Charter School Foundation, Inc.   The contact information for our local chapters, United Way of Broward County and United Way of Miami-Dade are listed below.  Remember, your parent donation is a direct investment into your child’s education and no matter which method you choose to donate towards your SOS Parent Donation, all contributions to the Pembroke Pines Charter School Foundation are tax-deductible.

Dear Parents,

Reminder: School will be closed Wednesday–Friday (3 days) in honor of Thanksgiving.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We would like to remind you that all volunteer/service hours are due by May 27, 2016.  Each family in the Pembroke Pines Charter School system must complete 30 hours annually in order for their child(ren) to continue enrollment.

Please make sure to hand in your volunteer/service hour forms before the deadline!

Thank you.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this letter regarding the activity fee.

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. 

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!
