    Returning Student Verification Process (RSVP)

    A letter containing your child(ren)’s SNAPCODE is coming home today in backpacks.  This code is used to access your child’s reenrollment information.  You can enter your child’s information starting May 21, 2019 through June 7th.  Look for the Returning Student icon in the upper right hand corner on the Pembroke Elementary Webpage.


    Pembroke Library Summer Check-Out!

    This year students returning to Pembroke in the fall are invited to check out up to 5 library books over the summer!  Just fill out the attached form and return it to the library.  Students will check out their summer books during the week of June 3rd.  Students can then enjoy reading these books all summer long and simply return them during the week of September 3rd.  “Giving kids a choice in what they read drives more reading and strong reading skills.  Achievement is driven by interest.” (Miller and Sharp, 2018).  We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity for more self-selected book access for your child!
