building tomorrow's leaders
The mission of Pine Knob Elementary empowers our students to be thinkers and leaders. Our staff, in partnership with families and community, help build independent, creative, cooperative, risk-taking leaders for today and tomorrow. Through open communication between home and school, possibilities for our students are endless. The key ingredients for success include open communication, parent involvement and dedication of staff and willingness of students to grow.
