Our teachers and staff are dedicated to ensuring the academic success of every student and providing a safe and productive learning experience. The school holds high expectations for the academic and social development of all students. Curriculum planning, staff development, and assessment activities are focused on assisting students in mastering the state academic content standards, as well as increasing the overall student achievement of all subgroups.

    School Mission Statement

    It is the belief of Pinkham Elementary School that all students can and will excel in an environment that is tailored to their evolving needs and conducive to all facets of the learning process. It is due to this belief that we have been able to successfully develop a comprehensive educational system that meets the needs of all students. We are engaged in continuous improvement of our learning community by focusing on the intellectual, emotional, and social growth of individuals. We celebrate and promote ethnic and cultural diversity. We strive to provide students with not only the stimulation and encouragement to accomplish such feats but the means to do so as well.

    Opportunities for Parental Involvement (School Year 2021-2022)

    This section provides information about opportunities for parents to become involved with school activities.

    Parent involvement and communication are essential to our school success. Pinkham Elementary School continually strives to involve parents by sharing information that helps parents understand and support school programs and by providing opportunities for parent participation in school activities.

    There are numerous and varied opportunities for parent involvement, including but not limited to, attending school functions, participating in parent-teacher conferences, volunteering in classrooms, and chaperoning field trips. Parents may also serve on advisory committees and leadership teams, including, but not limited to, the English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC),  School Safety Committee, and School Site Council (SSC). Additional opportunities for parental involvement also exist at the district level.

    Parents who would like more information on how to become involved may contact Principal Michelle Standlee at (559) 730-7853.
