STEM Building and Auditorium Ribbon Cutting

Save the date! The ribbon cutting to mark the grand opening of the newest campus resource will be Saturday, August 20th at 10 a.m. You don't want to miss this first look at the building that blends the best educational opportunities that Pine Lake has to offer for our students: space for students to make scientific discoveries in the laboratories as well as a stage to stretch their creative limits in the adjacent auditorium. More details to come!

Come tour the state of the art building and see Pine Lake student performers as they take the stage for the first time.

Orientation/Meet the Teacher Dates
** The Upper School Is hosting an orientation for all Freshman and new families on Wednesday, August 17th. They will host an open house at a date TBA in September, to give teachers and students time to become familiar with class curricula and expectations. 

Open Houses (with the exception of 6th Grade, see above chart) are informal opportunities to meet your student's teacher and familiarize them with the class locations.
