Dear Parents and Guardians,

If you plan to pick up your son or daughter early, please email the teacher in advance. This allows the teacher to have all homework and books ready to go home and causes less disruption for the rest of the class. Thank you for your cooperation.

Support our School by submitting labels from the following companies to our PTA:

Campbell’s: Cut off the entire 1 point or 5 point label found on Campbell’s products.

Box Tops: Box tops labels earn 10¢ per label for our school. Look out for bonus labels at Publix and Winn Dixie stores.

Tyson A+: Cut off the entire label to earn 24¢ per label for our school.

Sunny D: For every 20 SunnyD labels received the school will receive 20 new Scholastic books.

Coke Rewards: By drinking Coca-Cola products you can get My Coke Rewards points and donate them to help our school.

More fun programs will be added....

Upcoming PTA Activities:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please note this newsletter.

Parents, please review the Pembroke Pines Charter uniform policy.

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.

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Please note some reminders about our car line: The turn lanes into Pembroke Shores Parking lot on SW172nd Ave:

Cars driving to the office, West/FSU shuttle bus stop, or the YMCA are encouraged to enter the parking lot using the YMCA entrance north of the YMCA. Drivers that are leaving the YMCA are requested to join the car line at the back of the line.

Drivers are asked to refrain from honking unless it is an emergency. Parents are asked to use the sidewalk and not walk through the car line. Children should remain seat-belted in their car until the child is ready to get out of the car.

In the am, please remember to use the car line "snaking system" even if it appears only a few cars are present. It only takes a few moments for many cars to arrive and cause unnecessary congestion on SW172nd when a few cars deviate from the traffic pattern skipping the 3 rows.

Please remember that our car line is a“no cell phone zone.”

Dear Parents and Guardians,

If you need to sign out your child before 2:30pm, please email the teacher so that your child can have all that they need to go home and be prepared for the next school day.

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.
