Principal's Message

Pinecrest Community,

It is with great pride and excitement that I am able to introduce myself as the principal of Pinecrest Academy St. Rose for the 2019-2020 school year.  It is an honor to serve the Pinecrest Academy St. Rose community in this leadership capacity.  I have been dedicated to the field of education for over fifteen years and have been passionate about teaching my entire life.  I am excited and eager to apply my educational leadership skills to achieve the mission of Pinecrest by uniting the community to prepare students for college and careers.

Along with dedicated teachers and staff, I will strive to grow the legacy of Pinecrest Academy St. Rose as a high-achieving public charter school by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will achieve the vision of Pinecrest scholars performing at the highest level on all academic measures by focusing on character education, STEAM initiatives, Nevada Academic Content Standards taught through rigorous curriculum, and the use of data to drive instructional decisions.

As your principal, it is important to me that students, teachers, parents, and community members are excited and happy to be at Pinecrest Academy St. Rose!  A positive attitude about learning and growing enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a rewarding, engaging, and nurturing environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Pinecrest Academy St. Rose meet their individual goals and ensure a successful school year!  GO PANTHERS!


Jon Haskel
