2013-2014 Student Handook
Welcome to our Pinellas Park Elementary website. This site represents our school and what we have to offer our students and families. It also contains information for parents, students and the community. Please visit our site often to take note of upcoming events.
We are here to meet the needs of our learners by providing ongoing communication with parents and providing a safe learning environment where students can grow as learners. We ask that you check your child's Agenda nightly to keep communication open between home and school. If at any time you have questions or concerns with your child at PPES, please feel free to contact your child's classroom teacher or me at (727)547-7888.
Please note that school hours for the 2013-14 school year have changed. Our school hours are 8:35am-2:35pm.
You as the parent/guardian are your child's first teacher and can have an impact on your child's learning by volunteering at school. Whether you help out in the classroom, on field trips, media center, cafeteria, or front office, your help is greatly appreciated. Please contact Malissa Pierce at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the school to become an active volunteer.
Here is to another great year filled with learning!

Pinellas Park Elementary History and Tradition
Now, I know you know that PPE Staff takes pride in PPE and show school spirit in several ways. This is especially true if you have ever been to one of our family fun filled events! If not, one way is through PPE's very own cheerleading team! Not only does the team perform at all of the assemblies, but they lead the school in kicking off several schoolwide events such as FCAT Assembly, end of the year functions, and special anniversaries. In 2007-2008, a mascot was added. It is still a mystery as to who is actually behind the bear costume!
Another way PPE shows school spirit is through singing its very own school song, "Pass It On." Below are the words to the song and you can hear it perform live daily on PPE's very own televised morning news.
Pass It On
What a wondrous place this is,
With all our friends around us.
To share each day with us,
As we learn together.
That's how it is with our love!
Once you've experienced it.
Our friends are near, our friends are dear,
The love of Pinellas Park.
Our school is bright and clean,
Our teachers are so loving.
They try their best to help,
With everything worth knowing.
That's how it is with our school-
Once you've experienced it.
You'll understand, what makes us grand,
The love of Pinellas Park!
I'll shout it from a mountain top -
I want the world to know.
Pinellas Park is good to me,
I want to pass it on. (Repeat)
