Dear Parents,

I am writing to encourage you to take advantage of an important opportunity for you and your children in grades K - 3.  A five-session workshop series called Families That Care: Supporting School SuccessⓇ is being offered at our school. These interactive workshops will give you and your family the skills to work together and take action now to help your children do well in and enjoy school.

In these lively, interactive workshops, you will learn practical skills to help you improve communication, reduce misbehavior and help your children in grades K - 3 develop a positive attitude and love of learning. The workshops help parents partner with schools to address two of the critical factors - academic failure and early antisocial behavior - that put children at risk for later problems.  This program is based on solid research that has a proven track record of effectiveness.

The first workshop is taking place on Wednesday, September 2nd from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm.  All parents will be credited Volunteer hours for attending.

Hope to see you there!

Save the Dates for upcoming workshops:
Oct. 7th, Nov. 4th, Dec. 2nd, and Jan. TBA

6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Due to the impending Tropical Storm/Hurricane, we would like to review the procedures should we undergo a Tropical Storm or Hurricane in our area.  Please make note of the following information:

BEFORE AND AFTER the storm, The City of Pembroke Pines Charter Schools will follow the decision of the School Board of Broward County, Florida.  If they are open, we will be open.  If they are closed, we will be closed.  Please stay tuned to our local media for updates. Additionally you may check our website here for the latest news.  This section will be updated if it is operational.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this letter regarding the activity fee.

It speeds things up if parents utilizing the car line display the names and grades of their children on the hanging car signs. The dismissal process goes much faster when drivers circle through the car line loading area as directed by staff a second time when the children are not outside in the loading area.  Please leave the name card up until the child is in the car.


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note the Charter School Fundraising Newsletter 2015-16.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please this flyer.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this flyer from Mrs. Rivera. 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are requesting donations of bags of red mulch.  If you would like to donate, please contact the front office at 954-499-4244 to coordinate a time to deliver the bag(s) to our school.  Thank you!
