Building Student Assistance Team (B.S.A.T.):
Pineview offers to students, teachers and parents a team approach to problem solving. The goal of the problem solving process is to help students (and their families) gain academic and behavioral success, both at Pineview Elementary and in the community. During this process a team (parents and school personnel) will meet to identify interventions that will help the student, teacher and parent deal with the problem the student is having in school. The B.S.A.T. process is meant to be user friendly and non-threatening. It is a wonderful resource with many different entities and personalities all coming to one table to work cooperatively for the good of students. At Pineview Elementary we strongly believe that when school personnel and parents work together as a team children benefit greatly.
Pineview Mentoring Program:
The Pineview Mentoring program pairs students in kindergarten - second grade with adult mentors. This is a special program that connects students with caring adults, who either listen to the student read, help to do academic work, or spend quality time together. The mentors are people in the community who volunteer their time to meet with the same child for 30 minutes each week. If at all possible, their mentor follows the student throughout the three years that they are at Pineview. It is a wonderful program and everyone at Pineview is very appreciative of the help the mentors provide. These mentors are, many times, just what the child needs! If you would have an interest in this program, please contact the school.
Pineview Elementary has a program called Boost Up. Many of the classes at Pineview participate in Boost-Up during their school day. Boost-Up uses a combination of physical and classroom activities, the curriculum stimulates high levels of pre-academic and early academic development among all children, from those at risk for failing due to receiving too little early stimulation to those fully prepared for academic learning.
Iowa Falls Parent Teacher Organization:
Iowa Falls has an active Parent Teacher Organization that supports our elementary programs. The Parent-Teacher Organization sponsors special events in the building such as Open House and the annual PTO Carnival. Last year with carnival fundraising dollars new books were purchased for our guided reading bookroom at Pineview. Room parents are also contacted through the PTO. Several people work in the building as volunteers. Any person who would be willing to volunteer, please contact our school. We would love you to be part of our team!
Reading is Fundamental:
Through the hard work of many key people at Pineview and contributions from community members and the Iowa Falls School District, the Reading is Fundamental program has become an institution in our elementary school. Through the proceeds made from the Book Fair at our Open House, local contributions, and contributions from the Iowa Falls School District; every student is given a book at least two times each year. The students look forward to the wide assortment of book choices and take pride in calling a new book their own.
Technology is an important part of every classroom at Pineview Elementary. We have a lab of 25 iMac computers and each classroom has several computers with Internet access. Each grade level at Pineview has two laptops carts of 30 computers each for student use. We utilize all high-speed Internet connections and the students use technology throughout each day of the school year. We have also added Smart Boards to all of our classrooms. SMART boards are interactive white boards that make learning lots of fun for everyone. Each classroom is also equipped with a RedCat Amplification device. Each teacher wears a microphone and his or her voice is amplified through infrared technology throughout the entire classroom. Each classroom has iPad's available for the students to use as another learning tool.
Office Hours: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
