Pinewood Pride in the News

Many things have made this year especially challenging. In response to public health concerns, the Jenison Public School educators and our students and families, have been rockstars in navigating the twists and turns of this academic year. The constant has been the widespread positive attitudes and commitment to flexibility. Now here we are, we made it to 100 days of school!

Local Reporter, Maranda from WOTV4 recently made the most of technology for a socially distanced interview with Pinewood Elementary School Principal Dr. Rachael Postle-Brown and 5th grade teacher Michelle U’ren.

Fifth graders from Pinewood Elementary, Eliza and Collin joined the conversation as well to discuss their experiences with the different learning modes and their appreciation for being back to in-person learning and with their friends.

It’s always great to see our staff and students representing the Jenison community. I’m so proud of how the district has been navigating this really tricky year, thank you Dr. Brown and Mrs. U’ren for leading your students well!
