Who We Are 

We are Pinewood parents working together toward a common goal - to create a better school and a better education experience for our children. We are welcoming and friendly. We are your neighbors, and we share many of the same concerns you do.

What We Do 

We enhance the school community by organizing and running family events such as Fun Night. We encourage unity and school spirit by sponsoring and running Track & Field Day and Spirit Week. We aid teachers  by fulfilling their classroom requests and aid the school by purchasing equipment and supplies not funded by the general budget.

Why We Do It 

To support the education of our children. To develop a closer relationship among the school, parents, and teachers. To create an atmosphere where teachers and administrators can do their best work - and so can our children. To support student activities/student enrichment.
