Pine Street Elementary School opens its doors everyday to over 400 fifth and sixth grade students in the Wayland Union School District. The Pine Street Elementary Staff is dedicated to our students academic growth and provides an environment that challenges the students to become life-long learners and contributors to the community.
Our building continues to take part in the Michigan Integrated Behavior and Literacy Support Initiative (MiBLSi). Through staff development in the area of reading and vocabulary, and with the use of technology, our staff emphasizes their commitment to literacy across all core curriculums. The staff collaborates to provide extensions and programming for both high achieving students and students that are in need of additional support. Staff also provide extensions and programming supports to meet the needs of all students in mathematics, to ensure academic growth and student success.
Students are recognized every day for meeting and exceeding behavioral expectations. Over 200 PRIDE tickets were earned by students each month in recognition of their positive behaviors. Through the Positive Behavior Support System, (PBS) the universal expectations and common language promote student success not only behaviorally but academically as well.
Pine Street Students have the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities and serve the community. Our students attend a Veteran’s Day Assembly and groups visit the local VFW to honor those that served. Our service based K-Kids Club, sponsored by the local Kiwanis, visited local nursing homes, participated in improving community grounds, planned a 5k walk that raised money for Cystic Fibrosis, and learned the value of being a contributing citizen.
We are proud that we again met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and received a “B” from the Michigan Department of Education. Through the school improvement process we continue to focus our efforts and dedicate ourselves to challenge our students in their education, to inspire our students to be lifelong learners, and to encourage our students to be citizens that contribute to those around them.
