Mr. Norman, Assistant Principal

As the Assistant Principal at Pinewood Elementary, I enjoy being part of a team that cares about their students and being part of a community that supports education.  My focus as the Assistant Principal is to ensure we have a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students and to help provide the support that each student needs to reach their potential as learners.  By working together as educators, parents, and community members, we can make that happen for Every Kid, Every Day.
