We are excited to have your students here for another year of learning. We are also excited for this new way to communicate with families and are hoping to keep you as up to date as possible with Pine Bend information and events.

New Attendance Line
We are fortunate to have a new addition to the Pine Bend office. Her name is Lisa Forbrook and she will be managing attendance in the mornings. If your student will be absent or tardy, please contact her at 651-306-7777.

PTSA Information
Pine Bend Families!

We are excited to start our 2016-17 year for the PTSA! Please join us for our first meeting and welcome back reception. We will have snacks and spend sometime getting to know other parents here at Pine Bend. I have included our agenda for the meeting portion of the evening as well. We are hoping to see many new faces at our first meeting of the year! Don't forget, there is FREE CHILDCARE during the meeting.
