Be Kind * Be Safe * Be a Learner * That's the Pittman Way

School Hours 8:15 AM - 3:00 PM

From the Principal's Desk

Goals! Do you make short and long term goals? A proactive person sets goals and has others help hold them accountable. Our staff is modeling this behavior by setting personal goals and monitoring progress. For example, my goal is to read to my kids 4 times a week. Sounds simple, right? This is an unbelievably hard thing for us to remember to do, especially when the weather is nice. I have 2 accountability partners at school that help remind and encourage me. Some students have already set some goals in their classroom. Soon, all students will make a personal AND academic goal.

What's your goal??

Habit of the Month: Be Proactive

Student Safety

Your students safety is our top concern. Please do NOT drop your student off prior to 7:45 in the morning. There is NO supervision until the doors open at 7:45. If you need before school care, there are several agencies that provide before and after school care:

YMCA- School Age Services: https://www.orymca.org/school-age-services

East Grand Church of Christ: http://eastgrandchurch.org/faith/ministries/east-grand-community-services/

Also, students need to be picked up by 3:15 PM. The above agencies also provide after school care. In addition, the Boys and Girls Club picks up students at Pittman for after school care. Check it out here: http://www.bgclubspringfield.org/stalnaker-unit/
