PPCMS Wins Top Scores In FCAT Writing!
Pines Charter Middle has consistently received 1st place in Broward County in the FCAT Science, Reading, Writing and Math. Once again, we were first in Science and we tied with Driftwood Middle School for first place in the very last FCAT Writes. It was a clean sweep for Reading in grades 6-8, and Math was first in 6th and 8th (7th placed 2nd in the county). Outstanding, PPCMS!!
Washington DC 2015
Since Monday the 19th, the 7th graders are being given the opportunity to learn about next year's Washington, DC trip and to indicate if they are interested in going. All students received an informational letter on Monday. Interested students need to fill out the bottom of the letter and return it to Mr. Harrison by the end of the week. Please stop by room 220 if you did not receive the letter.
Welcome Incoming 6th Graders,
PPCMS-W does it again! National Blue Ribbon and School of Excellence has been our past passion.On Tuesday, April 1, 2014, it was no April Fool’s joke! Dr. Michael Olson, a representative from the Florida Department of Education School Of Choice Office presented Ms. Flowers, Mr. Castellano and our leadership team an award for being chosen the top three out of 144 schools as an exemplar school. This means that our teaching and learning is above and beyond – so much so that the Department of Education would like to tape some of our classes and showcase it to the entire state on how to implement the Florida State Standards! The other two schools that will be a part of this are the Aventura City of Excellence and the Tallahassee School of Arts and Sciences. When asked why our school was chosen, Dr. Olson said immediately, “Student engagement. It is clear that students express themselves and are participating in class.” Thanks, Dr. Olson! A professional television crew visited our campus in May 2014 and we are anxiously awaiting our debut on the state website!
