    Pinebrook's House System

    The House System at Pinebrook Elementary made it's debut on January 5, 2023.  This exciting new initiative is designed to create community within the school.  Students and staff members were randomly assigned to one of six (6) houses.  Each "house" is a mix of staff members and students from different grades and classrooms.  This allows members of the Pinebrook community to engage with students and adults they would not normally have an opportunity to see.

    The house names were developed by highlighting regions where pumas live:  Yosemite (red), Sonoran (orange), Yukon (yellow/gold), Everglades (green), Andes (blue), and Patagonia (purple).

    Students will keep their house assignment for the duration of their term at Pinebrook.  We will have House Color Days where students and staff wear clothing (bandanas, bracelets, socks, shirts, pants, headbands, etc.) with their house color.  Our first House Color Day will be January 6, 2023.  Eventually, students will be able to earn points for their "house" through their positive actions.

    Stay tuned for more information about our emerging house system.
