We hope all of our Bears have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a new school year. We also want to welcome our newest Bears to Pinellas Park Elementary! The first day of school for students is August 10th. Our school hours for students are 8:35 am -3:05 pm. Students who arrive prior to 8:20 am are to report directly to the cafeteria. Our cafeteria opens each morning for breakfast for 1st-5th grade students at 7:45 am and 8:05 am for Kindergarten. Breakfast is served until 8:30 am. All students will receive free breakfast and lunch this year.
Incoming Kindergarteners, please come meet us for a Kindergarten Play Date on Tuesday August 2nd 9:30 – 11:00 am at England Brothers Park
5010 81st Ave N, Pinellas Park, FL 33781. This is a time to meet fellow classmates, build new friendships and learn more about Pinellas Park Elementary! Siblings are welcome. We look forward to seeing our little Bears at this PPE PTA sponsored event.
Our Teacher Meet and Greet this year will be held on Tuesday, August 9th from 1-3 pm. Students will be able to find their classroom, drop off school supplies and meet their teacher at this time. Please adhere to the time schedule as teachers will only be available at these assigned time. Bilingual assistants will be on campus to assist families speaking Spanish and Vietnamese.
Please make sure your child knows how he/she is getting home every day! This is very important to your child’s safety. If you have questions about bussing information, please contact the front office for information. If you are planning on using the car circle and your child is in grades 1st-5th , please know that you may only use the main car circle (north near public library), not the smaller circle (west 53rd St), as that is for Pre-K & Kindergarten student pickup and drop off only. Pre-K & Kindergarten drop off begins at 8:05 am. No early as there is no supervision prior to 8:05 am.
Your child will be bringing home very important papers on the first day of school. Please take a moment to fill out these papers and return them to school. Many contain important contact information requests that will help us communicate effectively with you this year. We appreciate your time and attention to this information.
On the first three days of school, parents will be permitted to walk their students to their classrooms between 8:05 and 8:30 am. After the first day of school, we will resume our normal arrival procedures, and parents will need to drop their children in the designated car circle. We will have plenty of staff on hand to make sure students to get to breakfast and class safely. Please remember any parents needing to come on campus or pick students up early will always need to have a photo id on them and be named on the child’s student information card in order to do so.
Our school supply list is currently on our website: http://www.pcsb.org/pp-es and copies can also be found in our front office. Our school phone number is 727-547-7888 should you have any questions. Please like our PPE PTA Facebook page as well.
We look forward to seeing all of our Bears at the Meet and Greet on August 9th and then on the first day of school August 10th! We will also spend time with parents on Aug. 11th at Back to School Night starting at 6 PM.
On behalf of Mrs. Vargus and the staff we are excited to welcome all of our returning students, and to get to know our new-to-Pinellas Park Elementary students. As we begin the year remember, Pinellas Park Elementary is where we come to learn and we love learning! Go Bears!
