2017 - 2018: It's A Wrap!

Dear friends:

It's been such an eventful and amazing year - and we have so many to thank! It has been an honor to serve as your PTA President and on behalf of the Pinecrest Elementary PTA, I would like to thank you all, our school community (parents, teachers, administrators, staff, custodians, volunteers and students), for helping make 2017-2018 a great year!

We faced several challenges, including Hurricane Irma, and still accomplished so much working together. Whether by volunteering in our classrooms, events, different committees, and/or supporting our fundraisers, you have all contributed and are part of Pinecrest Elementary’s force. You all make a difference in our children’s life! 

Together we were able to fulfill our school’s wish list this year! Thanks to our fundraising efforts, students will have the following this coming year:
