From the Principal

{title}
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Pine Street School’s website! Please take time to explore, discover, and learn all about our school and the many opportunities made available to our students.
I am honored to be a part of one of the finest elementary schools in South Carolina, and I am committed to promote only the best for the children at Pine Street School. The success of our school is a result of the strong partnerships created with our parents, students, teachers, and community.
I am proud to announce that PSS continues our tradition of excellence by maintaining an excellent rating on our annual school report card. These accomplishments reflect the hard work and dedication of our school community. We will continue to focus on the educational experiences for our students and providing a safe, nurturing, and caring environment.

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7
Dr. Tim Hodges, Director of Research with Gallup spent time in Spartanburg and the District speaking about hope, engagement, and well-being, and how measuring those outcomes can strengthen student readiness for learning.
Last year the Gallup Student Poll found that while 54% of the children surveyed felt hopeful, 46% feel stuck or discouraged about the future. Hodges noted, “That is real cause for concern.”
Next week D7 will administer the 2014 Gallup Student Poll to 1800 children in grades 5-12 with 20 questions like: “Did you smile and laugh a lot yesterday?”, “Is there an adult in my life who cares about my future?”, and “Is my school committed to building the strengths of each student?”
We believe this important feedback will help us improve hope and engagement and enable us to better prepare our students for college, career, and life.
Gallup is providing this Poll free of charge.
