Message from Principal Laura Mendicino

  • School Principal"Welcome to Pinecrest Elementary school, where students lead with excellence! I am honored to be the principal of this amazing school, working alongside all stakeholders for the betterment of our students and community. In an effort to educate the whole child, Pinecrest follows Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids and has implemented The Leader in Me framework. With this, we believe everyone has leadership skills to offer and look forward to working with all stakeholders in support of our school’s success. I encourage you to get involved in our school by joining the Parent Lighthouse Team (encompasses SAC and PTO) or by volunteering at your convenience. At Pinecrest, your leadership is valued!"
