Annual Pine Bend Elementary Title 1 Parent Meeting
All families and students participating in the Title 1 program this school year are invited to the Annual Pine Bend Elementary Title 1 Parent Meeting. The brief meeting will be an agenda item during our PTSA meeting on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, which begins at 6:30 pm. 

The purpose of this meeting is to connect with families and staff to review the Pine Bend Parent Involvement Plan and the District Parent Involvement Plan. The annual meeting is held for compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act legislation and to hear the voices of all stakeholders at Pine Bend. We want to know what is working for our students and families and welcome suggestions to improve our Title 1 program. IF childcare is a condition for attendance, please RSVP to Jenny Kelly at [email protected] or at 651-306-7750 by February 2nd to ensure we have enough help. 

Thank you and hope to see you there!
