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.
As we navigate through this year, we will continue to support our students academically while also focusing on their social-emotional well-being. We believe that students are more likely to succeed when they feel safe, accepted, and included.
Every decision we make in Clarkston Community Schools is designed to support student achievement. I am happy to report that we are already seeing progress in closing the achievement gaps and tackling the learning loss due to COVID.
When we talk about equity and inclusion in Clarkston, we mean two things: eliminating barriers to student achievement and supporting a culture of respect for all students and staff.
