The first lines of the Pinewood Elementary School student creed are:
“I will make education my number one priority.
I will be the best that I can be and achieve at my highest level. . . ”
The heart and soul of the student creed permeates Pinewood Elementary School. It is more than just a motivational saying: It is an essential part of the culture of the school.
Dedicated staff and extraordinary volunteers lead the way for children to experience the creed everyday. And when caring adults make education a priority and doing one’s personal best a daily habit, students thrive.
